Court And Spark  

January 17, 1974 ~ A close #2 on my list of fav albums from The Chirp. It’s her sixth album and remains her most successful.

It’s #111 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. 

Like millions of others, the album helped me through high school and life.




October 3, 1970, Janis and the Full Tilt Boogie Band were working on the Pearl album and were almost finished. The band put down the tracks for “Buried Alive In The Blues” and Janis planned to do the vocals the next day.

The next day, Janis is found dead at the Landmark Hotel in Los Angeles after a heroin overdose. She was just 27.

“Pearl” is released on January 11, 1971.

It’s #122 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
