Reminds me of Janis Joplin… She would have been 72 years old this year (2015). Born January 19, 1943.
The movie The Rose was fictionalized and was loosely based on Janis Joplin, apparently her family would not allow the producers the rights to her story. The original title was originally planned to be Pearl, her nickname.
I have “Pearl” the album packed in a box. It is not in mint condition at all, the jacket cover is really worn. It’s very obvious, Pearl was my most played album back in the seventies.
