    Incredible clip. (Of course, it’s Janis.) Cass Elliot in the audience is diggin’ it too.

      Rowen,
      As soon as the music started, I was hooked, then she started singing. She had me with every sound, every note.

      Do you think wearing “shades” hid it was Mama Cass?

  2. Bob Cohen Says:

    Yet another voice of our generation who was silenced too young from illegal drugs and alcohol.

  3. Tracey A Gibons Says:

    Ahh Janis.
    A candle burning at both ends.

    Kat,
    I’ve never heard this song before. Yes, I agree that was Mama Cass.There are so many talented people who died so young from that period, and not from all from illegal drugs. I may have the years mixed up, but Mimi Farina– and later on Kate Wolf, and one of the Roche sisters.
    A toast to their music,
    Lori

      Lori,
      They did have Mama Cass on the screen below her camera shot so it was definitely her. You’re right: sadly, so many died young.
