Comparison shopping?

The original...


And now, the famous...


I won't say which is my favorite, though I will say it might surprise you.

The original... (doesn't sound or look as good as it should, but it's all I could find and If someone can tell me how to put up a song on a post I will make this a weekly game.


The famous...

QUEEN OF ARCHIVES, too? What happened to music? Some will sell-out for the almighty dollar and others will cherish their talents, they were given. Welcome to our greedy world. Thanks for shopping.

It's super-hard to beat Janis Joplin. Is this performance the one at the Monterey Pop fest? I LOVE to watch Mama Cass mouth the word "Wow" while she is watching Janis perform.

Do I’ve to pick one between original and famous???
Oh come on… that is not fair…
Although, I adore Big Mama Thornton, Janis Joplin was… IS and ALWAYS WILL BE AMAZING…
I cannot compare them… that is unfair. Lets call a tie.
However, a comparison between Elvis and BMT is way easier… ORIGINAL.
But, please don’t get me wrong, I think that Elvis did a great job with this sound ($$$$), but the original has so much soul and emotion in it... just oustanding.
