Janis Joplin Tribute

Joss Stone and Melissa Etheridge do 'Piece of my Heart' and 'Cry Baby'.

Think it is Melissa who gets Janis the best, although she was apparently recovering from chemo at the time, which adds extra poignancy to this...

Janis was one of the all time great female singers in my opinion, comparable to Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Aretha, Mavis Staples,  Edith Piaf, Twink and the mother and daughter in Crystal Swing.  I'm just joking about the last 3!
