Janis Joplin and Chet Helms -- 1967 in San Francisco
« on: July 30, 2022, 07:13:58 am »

Dawgincontrol's Cloudplay playlist of Janis Joplin Live led me down a different rabbit hole.  Chet Helms was the promoter who helped put her together with Big Brother and the Holding Company.  His bio is amazing.

That happened the same summer I arrived in San Francisco after finishing college on the East Coast.  1967.
