This is a One-Of-A-Kind collectible! A Janis Joplin Owned and Worn Hippie Crochet Vest and two wood bead necklaces worn while performing somewhere in an England. This item is from Nightclub Promotor Mickey Deans.Mickey Deans is best known for being the last husband of Singing Legend Judy Garland. Janis went to or performed at a Nightclub somewhere in London that Mickey Deans was running. She saw all the memorabilia hanging on the walls that belonged to Famous performers and wanted to donate something to be put on display with the other items. In an included typed letter which has been signed in ink from Mickey Deans he states all of those facts about this item being given to Deans for display in the club. This was one of many items in my late son's collection of memorabilia.
Janis was born a misfit, a tomboy, a painter, a girl who didn't accept arbitrary boundaries, a girl with a big voice. She never stopped wanting to belong. That's why, years later at the age of 25, it had been so daring of her to leave behind the band that had launched her, Big Brother and the Holding Company.She had joined the group in San Francisco in June 1966 and two months later they were bunking communally in Marin County. Despite technical shortcomings as musicians, they were a dynamic live band with a solid following, and they correctly saw in Janis the element that would elevate them to status similar to their Haight-Ashbury scene-mates Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead. Sure enough, Big Brother and the Holding Company broke big in June 1967 at the Monterey Pop Festival, signing with Dylan's manager Albert Grossman, who secured a lucrative deal for them with Columbia Records.
