Janis Joplin Episode 3: Otis on Acid, the Liberation of Chocolate George, and a Beatle in the Haight

36 minutes

The Summer of Love reaches its boiling point in the summer of 1967. Janis has an epiphany watching Otis Redding while on acid. Her bond with the local chapter of the Hell's Angels is strengthened. Mama Cass becomes a new convert at a pivotal show at the Monterey Pop Festival. And the presence of a Beatle in the Haight calls into question the stamina of the peace and love movement.
