When you think of the most unique and recognisable voices of all time, Janis Joplin is certainly near the top of the list. Her voice was a one of a kind and to this day stands out from any other female vocalist in the history of music, accept perhaps for Aretha Franklin. What we have in this article is her isolated vocal track from the song Move Over from her Pearl album. Take a listen:
Big Brother And The Holding Company were one of the hottest bands around during the mid-late 1960’s, driven by the explosive vocals of the one and only Janis Joplin.

What we have here is her isolated vocal track from the song, and it’s fantastic. Take a listen.
