Janis Joplin Big Brother And The Holding Company on 180g LP

Legendary blues-rock singer Janis Joplin first rose to stardom as the lead singer for San Francisco psychedelic band Big Brother & the Holding Company and maintained prominence later as a solo artist with her backing groups, The Kozmic Blues Band and The Full Tilt Boogie Band. Known as 'The Queen of Rock and Roll' at the height of her career, Joplin redefined the role of women in music with her signature bluesy wail and electrifying stage presence, providing some of the most emotionally charged performances of her era.

Besides being the album that introduced the world to Janis Joplin, Big Brother & the Holding Company’s first release stands as one of the classic recordings of ’60s rock. Joplin had added her fiery wail to the archetypal Haight-Ashbury acid-rock quintet only months before it entered the studio to make the album, and for the sessions she shares vocal duties with bassist Peter Albin and guitarist Sam Andrew. But, thanks to the album's smash single, “Down on Me,” it was immediately clear that the Texas-born singer was a sensational talent and a force to be reckoned with.
