Her powerful, raw vocals touched fans of folk music, blues and soul alike, with recordings such as 'Me and Bobby McGee', 'To Love Somebody' and 'Mercedes Benz' widely recognized as classics of their era.

In 27: Janis Joplin acclaimed author Chris Salewicz examines Joplin's troubled and unconventional existence, and explains her profound musical influence.
