- A What's New
- Here's a new item from ICE that may of interest:
"Moving into 'to be scheduled' status: BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING
COMPANY- Big Brother & The Holding Company (Janis Joplin's first album;
ICE #106) (Sony Legacy)."
This seems to indicate a rerelease of that album however there has been
NO release date set. (Thanks to Kevin Perkins for this bit of information).
- The first bit of information is from the All
Music Guide and is the entry
about Janis Joplin. All the information is now displayed in tables
so I am making a copy of the old version of the information
- The Janis Joplin FAQ, still a work in progress as soon as a decent
version is available it will be posted here. If you have any suggestions
for information to include in the FAQ please e-mail me.
- Here's a bibliography
pertaining to Janis Joplin.
- There is now a brief biography
of Janis here. It was written by Lauren
Leahy who has graciously given me permission to include it here.
- For more detailed information see the Janis
Joplin International Web Site.
- I have also started a discography
Note: This is mostly a synthesis of already available materials. I can
take no "creative" credit. It is a compilation of available materials
and information people have sent me.
- From "Wilson & Alroy's Record Reviews," a group of people
reviewing records comes this review
of Janis and her work.
- You can even read some of Ellis Amburn's Pearl
online at Pathfinder.
The following song lyrics are available
- These were obtained from the music ftp site at University
- The following lyrucs were made available to me by Kevin
Perkins , so if you appreciate his work please tell him so.
- Well, I decided to get into the transcribing act and now have new appreciation
for everyone who transcribes lyrics.
- Yet another donor of transcribed lyrcis. Tony
Armstrong. provides the following lyrics:
- Some lyrics from Pearl and Kozmic Blues transcribed by
- Some guitar transcriptions sent to me by Juan
This is a new addition to the Janis Joplin page. All these sounds are
8 bit/22.225 kHz and were created by using the digital audio transfer of
the track from the audio cd to my hard drive and then editing the high
quality sample to come up with the samples, which were then converted to
.wav formet All of the song clips are taken from the cd Janis Joplin
18 essential songs .
- Mercedes Benz
like to do a song of great social and political import" (2.891
Lord, won't you buy me a mercedes benz, all my friends drive Porsches,
I must make amends, worked hard all my lifetime with no help from my friends."
(17.055 secs, 370.8k)
oh Lord, won't you buy me a color tv, oh Lord, won't you buy me a night
on the town." (11.157 secs, 242.6k)
it (laughter)." (1.591 secs, 34.7k)
- This clip was sent to me by Kenny
Unser and is from "Me and Bobby McGee"
- From a site in Germany comes a large (2 MB) .au file of Me
and Bobby McGee.
- Here's a midi of Me
and Bobby McGee.
- Here's a site in Brazil
that is selling cds. They also have some .wav files there but the links
from the cd page do not match the real paths to the .wavs, so here are
the direct links: Me
and Bobby McGee , Summertime
, and Try
(Just a Little Bit Harder). Some of the sounds may have static as the
first few seconds of them, so if you have some simple sound editing software
you may want to use it on the sounds. Oh yeah, the page is written in Portugese.
Note these are all stored locally on the same server as the pages.
These pictures come to me as a result of the efforts of Charles
Spivey, but I am responsible for the conversion from .bmp to .gif for
space considerations, so if there are errors it is my fault.
