About Janis Joplin
A self-described “misfit” in high school, she suffered virtual ostracism, but dabbled in folk music with her friends and painted. In addition, she briefly attended college in Beaumont and Austin but was more drawn to blues legends and beat poetry than her studies. Soon, she met up with guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and the pair recorded a suite of songs with his wife, Margareta, providing the beat on her typewriter. These tracks included blues standards like “Trouble in Mind” and “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out”. As a result, it later surfaced as the infamous “Typewriter Tapes” bootleg.
Her voice remains among the most distinctive and galvanizing in pop history. However, Janis Joplin didn’t merely possess a great instrument; she threw herself into every syllable, testifying from the very core of her being.
