Big Brother & The Holding Company Artist Snapshot:

Big Brother and the Holding Company was the group that backed 1960s blues-rock siren Janis Joplin. Their hallucinogenic charm lies in the gulf between the roots music they loved and the electrically charged, psychedelic-tinged music they actually played. Brimming with casual confidence and empowered by a sense of community, this band mixed free-spirited innovation with total honesty and commitment. At the end of the decade, Joplin departed for a solo career, though she would tragically depart from the world itself soon after.

Product Notes

One of the most eagerly awaited albums in rock history, Big Brother & the Holding Company's 1968 major label debut (they'd previously released one thinly produced collection on the small Mainstream label) made good on all the hype generated by Janis Joplin's amazing performance at the Monterey Pop Festival the year before. Crowned by its hit single, a churning remake of Aretha Franklin's sister Erma's "Piece of My Heart," the album also contained Joplin's Monterey showstopper, Big Mama Thornton's "Ball and Chain," as well as the Gershwin classic "Summertime," on which Joplin's always underappreciated band (especially guitarists Sam Andrews and James Gurley) match her vocal intensity with their own ferocious playing. This expanded reissue includes two previously unissued outtakes ("Roadblock" and "Flower in the Sun") and a couple of heretofore unheard live cuts ("Catch Me Daddy" and "Magic of Love"), all from 1968. --Billy Altman
