  1. No sure where you got the info on this, but it was a 5 song EP that came out around 1978, by a San Fran Drag Queen by the stage name of Pearl Hart (also not only chose this name as he was considered at the time to be the best SF Janis impersonator, but Pearl Hart was also the last of the female stage coach robbers from Canada, but died in Chicago in 1955)
    I don’t believe Mike Bloomfield had anything to do with this, but I think Sam Andrew of Big Brother may have been on here playing guitar. I’m still amazed though that people who like Janis actually think this sounds like her, as the pitch, tone, and even the forced sound (being a guy trying to sing like her) to me sounds pretty obvious it’s not her, but people believe what they want to believe., so much do, that this was included on a boot or rare Janis recording entitled “Blow All My Blues Away”……..amazing!
    Pearl Hart dies of aids a few years back, but his/her claim to fame was being filmed on stage with other SF female impersonator Sylvester alongside Bette Midler in the film, The Rose.

  2. Len, not sure where you get your info, but it’s wrong. You must be listening to a different tape. In fact, I was personally impressed with how restrained and subtle Janis was capable of being, especially the opener, though she does belt the shit out of it in the end. All the research I’ve done on this shows it to clearly be a studio session and not the EP you’re talking about.
