expand Yup... that's Mama Cass - at 3:28 - amazed!



  • (from Brian Hart) Great video..one of the best you have posted
  • (from Rain Equine) Yes! I 'shared' this with my father, drummer for the band: "Cat Mother". He and the guys were scouting for an additional player for their first album: "The Street Giveth and the Street Taketh Away", and saw Janis in a club in Boston- pre Monterey Pop... ....good times :)
  • (from Mark Hughes) I remember that story Rain!
  • (from John Fredrick Williams) Now I Am Really Possessed!

Caption This:
  • (from James Bret)  "HEY, I CANT FIND SNOOKIE. I HAVE TO PEE !!!"
  • (from R Dean Chandler)  How 'bout "If Mama Cass had shared that ham sandwich with Karen Carpenter, they would both be alive today."
  • (from Kevin Tyrrrell) I thought you said the wine was red?
  • (from the LA FP 60's Music Site) How 'bout... "I thought this was gonna be Kool-Aid!"
  • (from Abbatinko Hernandez) SAW HER THE NIGHT BEFORE SHE DIED BUYING WINE AND CIGARETTES AT THE MARKET ON HIGHLAND ACROSS FROM THE BOWL.... SHE LOOKED LIKE DEATH WARMED OVER.......
  • poor thing, she was out of it. I was with Cynthia Plaster Caster at the market--which was up the street on Franklin and Grace--if my memory serves me correctly...
  • (from the LA FP 60's Music Site) Probably does... That market, too, was only around the corner from us (back then). Thanks for stopping by... we had sadly reported the 'news' that Janis had just passed away only a few blocks from our office
    Here is the obit from the events that followed that night...

  • (from Abbatinko Hernandez) I "spun" records at STARWOOD for awhile, and also at RODNEY's club-- but he got pissed off at me because in a CREEM mag article sometime in 1974, I was picked among the 100 "people" to know in LA...AND HE WASN'T !!!!!!!! LMFAO

  • (from the LA FP 60's Music Site)  Gotta say 'Thanks' to Ruben for finding this... now do yourself a favor and go Full Screen and get a faceful of Janis. A sweet little girl that sings big.

  • (from Danny Treiber) Janis live, golden. Thanks.
  • 'Thanks', Danny, for stopping by! Glad you liked this... so few people have actually seen her WS appearances - 'cept, of course, the half million folks who were actually there. Pls do 'share' this clip while it is still copyright-claim free! (As mentioned above, the LA FP - is involved in a Project (the VRRP) to KEEP these types of clips on the net. Want more info... just say so :))



  • (from Kevin Gallagher) I would have watched Dick Cavett if I knew he had Joplin, Hendrix, etc. on the show!
  • (from Ruben Chandler) Cavett ruled!
  • (from the LA FP 60's Music Site)  Kevin... you can enjoy a bunch of their interviews over at that YouTube thing... nice way to chill, a Memorial Day of sorts. (Side Note - for some time now the LA FP has been working on a Project to keep these kind of clips from being 'disappeared' by music copyright claims .. let me know if you are interested in hearing more about this.)
  • (from Kevin Gallagher) I'm interested... That is a good idea.
  • (from the LA FP 60's Music Site)  Far out...am glad you are interested - will put you on the Private Announcement list... look for word in about 10 days... will give you an opportunity to say what you think we need to improve before we put it public. Will be very cool to have you involved from the launch.
