- Her performance of "Ball and Chain" at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival. The look of awe in the face of Cass Elliot of the Mamas and the Papas, says it all.
"She had been amazing at Monterey, but tonight she wasn't at her best, due, probably, to the long delay, and probably, too, to the amount of booze and heroin she'd consumed while she waited. But even Janis on an off-night was incredible."
- Her performance at Woodstock deserves a mention, too. Pete Townshend, of The Who, puts it best.
Awesome / Janis Joplin
