Janis Joplin - Woodstock Sunday August 17, 1969

Janis Joplin - Woodstock Sunday August 17, 1969 - 2019

Janis Joplin and her former band Big Brother & the Holding Company gained stardom at the Monterey International Pop Festival 1967. Unfortunately in late 1968 she left the band to move on to a solo career. Of course, Janis ended up in Woodstock together with a full ensemble of musicians.

Her late performance - she played in the night of Saturday to Sunday at about 2:00 am - didn't make things easier for her. The show was still strong but it lacked somewhat of Janis Joplin's power and improvisation of her backing band. Nevertheless, this gig is a worthwhile document of time.
