I’ve always loved the vintage aesthetic to this recording. It gives me a good sense of what it might have been like to live in San Francisco during the sixties and bear witness to all sorts of spontaneous musical events. Janis‘ heart wrenching voice is accompanied by the fingerstyle sounds of Jorma Kaukonen on the guitar.
Recorded on June 30, 1964, they call it The Typewriter Tape because you can hear a typewriter in the background played by Margareta Kaukonen (Jorma’s wife at the time) as a percussion instrument. Check it out:
