Vinyl, LP, Reissue, Remastered, Album
Janis Joplin’s raw, bluesy and soulful delivery launched a short but powerful singing career. Although she originated from Texas, Joplin rose to stardom in psychedelic San Francisco in the late 60′s. She had a love-hate relationship with the city: its beat & hippie community provided great musicians and a receptive audience, but the city’s prevailing drug culture unfortunately caused her early demise.
Her studio debut with backing band Big Brother And The Holding Company from 1967 showed a band on its way to greatness. Janis uplifts the loose and live sounding blues rock on Big Brother with scorching vocal performances. Minor hits “Bye Bye Baby” and “Down On Me”, Big Brother And The Holding Company featuring Janis Joplin shows a band on its way to greatness. It’s the starting point for anyone exploring the Joplin legacy!
Includes the songs “Coo Coo” and “The Last Time”, which were originally released on 45 RPM 7 inch singles.
