    the safety tape catches Mercedes

    The Story Behind Janis Joplin’s ‘Mercedes Benz’

    The songwriters, musicians and producers behind ‘Mercedes Benz’ recall how Janis Joplin recorded the hit song three days before she died of a drug overdose

    "Paul Rothchild told me later the problem was with his 2-inch tape recorder. The heads shifted or something and needed to be readjusted. Paul had a ¼-inch safety reel going that ran all the time as a backup in case there was an idea he missed in between takes when the 2-inch main recorder was off. While Paul worked to fix the 2-inch tape recorder, Janis sang “Mercedes Benz” on a whim. Fortunately, the safety tape caught it. "
