    Antecedent of the widely known Chelsea Hotel 2, Leonard Cohen's memorial to Janis Joplin, it was recorded for Tony Palmer's Bird on a Wire documentary. The mood is soft and gentle despite the harsh realism of some of the images and sentiments expressed. Hard to think of Janis making a "sweet little sound" but this phrase was eliminated in the more popular Chelsea Hotel 2.
