Summertime...and the Living Is Easy

I thought of this song as we are getting what might be the last heatwave of summer as the season draws to a close. So I reached back in the vault [otherwise known as YouTube], and found this version by Janis Joplin, who, in many ways, might be the poster child for livin' that ain't easy. And she certainly managed to put her own stamp on the song in this 1969 performance in Stockholm. Enjoy.
