That festival and summer were like the calm before the storm in that time in our history. And, sadly, not too long afterward Janis, Jimi and Otis were no longer with us.

Have you seen the documentary, "Festival Express"? In the summer of 1970 a chartered train carried Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia, The Grateful Dead, Buddy Guy, and a bunch of other greats across Canada where they played live concerts at various cities along the way. The docu was produced in 2003 after the long-forgotten footage was discovered.

It may have been one of the last appearance by Janis. She died soon after that tour.

I caught it on cable a few weeks ago, but it's probably available thru Netflix.
