Noone did it like Janis

Hard to believe that over thirty years have gone by since Janis Joplin left us, but thanks to YouTube we can experience her one of a kind gut-wrenching voice that was just so cool and so amazing..When Janis sang she sang with her whole body. Every part of her was in the words and notes that she sang. Her whole heart, her soul, her total being. I call it "singing with all your blood and guts". Few can do it, Janis was one of them. Click on the link below and hear Janis at her best doing the song Move Over. As a bonus listen to the backup band, a cranking guitar, a classic Hammond organ and a butt kicking bass guitar and drummer. Janis Joplin in concert must have been something else.
