Joplin, Janis / Big Brother and the Holding Company - Winterland '68 (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 28-SBMK723208.2
Great, archival, professionally recorded set of Janis along with her original band, a star-crossed, pivotal San Francisco psychedelic band, who were quite cool in a truly psychedelic, 1967/68 way, and who had the fortune of a star-singer as a integrated member of the band, and the GREAT mis-fortune to be in the way when the powers that be decided that she was the star and that 'those hippies' were holding her back. They weren't holding her back; they were her most sympathetic accompanists and here is a reminder of that.

"Recorded live in San Francisco on April 12 and April 13, 1968, this set is a snapshot of the band -- with fine sound -- reaching the peak of their form. All of the well-known songs from their first two albums are present: "Ball and Chain," "Down on Me," "Piece of My Heart," "Summertime," "Combination of the Two," and "Light Is Faster Than Sound," for starters. A treat for fans to hear, with a 24-page booklet that has lots of comments from the band."
