Rick Danko, Janis Joplin, and Jerry Garcia Jammin' Out!

Here's a fantastic 'backstage' viewing of three giants of one of the most memorable eras of music. They sing, in this tape, Ain't No More Cane on the Brazos...a song that is, strangely, often attributed to Lead Belly - though he himself never actually recorded the tune. I think it's likely that he gets the credit b/c he kinda mentions the line in Go Down Old Hannah (one of his best tunes). If anyone actually knows whether he wrote it or not, please let me know.

Anyhow, the tune in the video is a great old song that the Band recorded on the Basement Tapes. It's a great little jam and it looks like they're enjoying themselves ;)

PS: I'm proud that my obscure hometown Calgary, AB gets a great shoutout by Janis!
