Janis Joplin’s Soulful Voice In “Trouble In Mind” – Studio Version
“Trouble in Mind” was written by Richard M. Jones. It was first recorded by Thelma La Vizzo in 1924 and was eventually covered by several other artists. In other versions, however, there are additional lyrics. Nevertheless, they still have the same opening verse from the original one and it goes:
“Trouble in mind, I’m blue
But I won’t be blue always”
Janis Joplin also performed her own rendition of this classic slow blues to include in her compilation album, “Janis” which was released on 1975. Aside from live concert recordings, the collection also contains short interviews,movie soundtracks and even a photo documentary booklet with about 22 pictures of Janis.
