The “Typewriter Tape”, Santa Clara, 1964: 8) Trouble in Mind, 9) Long Black Train, 10) Kansas City Blues, 11) Hesitation Blues, 12) Down and Out, 13) Daddy, Daddy, Daddy.This is followed by the erotic and yearning “Daddy Daddy Daddy”, which she used to play very often in her initial stints, and in which one can feel the atmosphere charging up, and a growing sense of complicity between the audience and her, as she slurs some of the sassiest lines here (“You know, he kisses me at bedtime/ gives me candy when I´m good…”) as the audience claps gleefully along.“Careless love” (an interesting piece written by Lonnie Johnson, about a woman´s revenge against an imprisoned man who has destroyed her family) is interpreted next with a sense of controlled violence and regret.The first of the performances recorded here is likely to come from 1963, and was recorded at the Coffee Gallery.Both the subject matter of the songs and the rough, energetic nature of the performance show the kind of artistic definition that Janis was seeking: these are pieces about sexual anxiety, jealousy, brutal violence and social exclusion, but also about a full sense of enjoyment and passion, and of occasional wonder at the simpler pleasures of life, irrespective of their possible immorality.The album easily reaches the platinum status in Belgium and is backed by shows on big..
