Janis Lyn Joplin - January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970

The last recording Joplin completed was on October 1, 1970 – "Mercedes Benz" Gene Shiveley had arranged for me to visit Sunset Sound Recorders Saturday, October 3, to listen to some of the finished work. Janis was there to listen to the track for Nick Gravenites' song "Buried Alive in the Blues". Janis was to do the final vocals the next day and she invited me back for the session. We were notified the next day that there would not be any Janis Joplin overdubs.
I will never forget that day.
