Janis Joplin

I love Janis Joplin.
I love that she had a distinctive voice when that wasn't the style of the day.
I love that she embraced hippie fashion and made it her own.
I love that Southern Comfort folks sent her a fur coat to thank her for the product exposure.
I love that she wore her fur coat proudly.
I love that she gave co-writing credit for "Mercedes Benz" and surprised the co-author with a mailed royalty check.
I love that she was the first female rock chick.

But this album cover just floors me. Say it ain't so.

THIS is Janis.
