Janis Joplin “What good can drinkin' do”
from Janis (Columbia Legacy 1998) —This is Janis' first ever recording, done on a home recorder in 1962, singing and accompanying herself on autoharp, age 19. She had only been singing and playing for a few months, and she's belting out the blues like a pro on a song she wrote.
Janis Joplin “Trouble in mind”
from Janis (Columbia Legacy 1998) —Rec ca. '65 in Frisco on a home recorder, acc by Jorma Kaukonen on guitar & Jorma's wife on the typewriter for percussion. A bootleg was once released called "The Typewriter Tape", but this cut is from a legit record. Janis sounds just like Bessie Smith!!
Martha & The Vandellas “Nowhere To Run”
from Hitsville USA, Vol. 1: The Motown Singles Collection 1959-1971 (Motown Record Company 2009)
