Oh, I see, it's the same print. I was hoping for an even better print of the 2nd photo -- around the picnic table -- if possible. I wonder if anyone has the original negatives. Now, that would be special. Furthermore, maybe there are some more shots from that same session....which is why I just reposted them here.
Fantastic! What a great tribute to Janis.Here is a terrific "near a cappella" version of Janis Hansen singing "The Look of Love" from the original Brasil 66 recording. There is also an imaginative recreation of the 45 record sleeve featuring three photos of Janis.
Here is an article about Janis in tiny print dated Sept. 19, 1976 from the local Kalispell, Montana newspaper. The header said "singer seeks return." It showed a picture of her at a piano and another of her standing. The only way you can get proper resolution to read the article is to start a free trial subscription at Newspapers.com.

[...] she could also soulfully sing with a fantastic R&B feel as on this great song. With production and sound by Bones Howe and released in 1971.
Interesting how Sergio and Herb were working on the song, but it just wasn't coming together--until Janis came into the recording studio. Janis was at the right place at the right time. For me, her vocal will always be the most sensual pop vocal of all time.I remember Janis' e-mail to me about the recording session for The Look of Love. They called and told her they were working on it, but it just wasn't coming together. They asked if she would come in and give it a shot. She pointed out that she realized the importance of Sergio's "Signature" sound, so she sang it with that in mind.
According to her, they laid the track in record time and it was perfect -- much to the surprise of Sergio and Herb -- both equally pleased. She told me it was no surprise to her. She knew she had it within herself to sing that part.
What a gracious lady she was!!
Jon...the "Brasil Nut"
So true... I think Janis is often mistaken for Lani ...there is a distinct difference....The one that stumps me a little is "Cinnamon And Clove" I am leaning Janis ..With all due respect to Sergio when you have that many talented Female singers I get your point."Sergio's 'signature' sound" AKA Lani. Sound like Lani. etc.
Was this a good thing?
Janis's voice is amazing! (Karen Philipp's too)
Interesting how Sergio gave himself lead vocals up to a point where he had total solo songs on: Ye-Me-Le, Stillness, & País Tropical. (these are my least favorite tracks on each of these albums)
Lani is an amazing vocalist (of course), but...
