Incredibly scarce glossy 8 x 10 publicity photo of Joplin seated on a stool, signed and inscribed in blue felt tip, “To Manny’s Musik, Love, Janis Joplin,” adding a small heart. Areas of surface loss and moderate toning to lower portion of photo, binder dings to left edge, a few spots to background, and some scattered light surface marks and creases, otherwise very good condition. Manny’s Music in Times Square was a must-stop destination for many musicians over the decades, including the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, and Joplin. Signed photos of this size are very seldom encountered, this being only the third we have ever offered, with the example offered here having great association with a New York music landmark.
