AV: The first cut on the LP is "Bye Bye Baby" which is credited to P. St. John. Is he the same John St. Powell who wrote songs for the 13th Floor Elevators ("You Don't Know," "Kingdom of Heaven," "Monkey Island," "Slide Machine," and "You Gotta Take That Girl")? If so, how did the connection come about?SA: There is a 13th Floor Elevator connection. His real name is Powell St. John who was a student at the University of Texas. The name is some Medieval variance of Paul, but there are a lot of Southern names that continued that tradition. He was a harmonica player, a good artist, and an old friend and lover of Janis.PA: There was a Texas contingent in San Francisco --- Linda Bacon, Powell St. John, Tracy Nelson, and most of the Mother Earth band for whom Powell played harp.I don't know who first performed "Bye Bye Baby," whether it was Tracy Nelson or Mother Earth, but he gave the song to Janis.SA: I think he wrote the song about her. Perhaps when they were lovers or after they broke up.AV: Is he still around?PA: I talked to him about three years ago. I was trying to find him in regards to royalties. He was living over in Oakland and doing something with computers, but he is out of music.
