Remembering …

… Janis Joplin gives a lesson on the blues in rare 1963 clip. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

“This a song a lot of blues singers sing,” she says following a rousing rendition of ‘Daddy, Daddy, Daddy’. Introducing the San Franciscan crowd to another obscure number and upping their musical education. “The version I do was recorded by Lonnie Johnson back in the ’20s. He’s an old-time blues singer who never achieved much prominence but he’s still very good,” before launching into the charming performance of ‘Careless Love’.
