'Piece of My Heart'

Photographer Daniel Kramer captures Janis Joplin cutting her 1968 hit "Piece of My Heart" in New York. "Janis wanted a bottle of Southern Comfort, so I accompanied her to a local wine store, then she did a few takes," he recalls. "It was an empty studio, there was no stage or audience, no one to work to — yet she was just incredible."
