For a 60 second sound clip of Janis Joplin singing "Winin Boy", go to the
below site: Steve Mann is on guitar.
I have to confess that while I have heard a lot about Janice Joplin over the
years & heard a few clips of her singing, I never paid much attention to her
as I detest the type of music she sang.
I have heard about her singing with Dick Oxtot, from Bill Maginnis. Bill
also told me about Janice auditioning for Turk Murphy. I believe Turk
turned her down because he did not want any "stoned out of her mind" Hippies
singing with his band or hanging around.
I have sent a note to Bill asking for more details. If he answers, I will
Anyway, I am slowly getting to my point. What a singer! Really too bad she
went the way she did. What a loss!
