This vintage, inedit footage captures Janis Joplin singing “Me and Bobby McGee” on the Festival Express Tour. Her humor and care-free attitude is what she was known for, and that personality is captured in this clip.
Fun Fact: The Festival Express was a tour that hit three Canadian cities: Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary. The group, including The Grateful Dead and The Band, took to the tour by chartered bus, which turned into a drunken jam session party between stops.Advertisement
Janis’ distinct voice warms our hearts and seeing her crammed in a train car jamming away with friends, this must have been where she was happiest.
