BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY

JANIS JOPLIN – BIG BROTHER AND THE HOLDING COMPANY [MOVLP463]

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.

ANIS JOPLIN - CHEAP THRILLS

JANIS JOPLIN – CHEAP THRILLS [MOVLP464]

One of the most eagerly anticipated albums of 1968 by press and public, Cheap Thrills delivered on every expectation and more. Released within a year after the debut album Big Brother And The Holding Company featuring Janis Joplin [MOVLP463] Cheap Thrills showcases a tried & true Big Brother And The Holding Company, a highly confident Janis Joplin on vocals and an impeccable production.

With the heart-rending version of “Piece Of My Heart” and a definitive cover of Gershwin’s “Summertime”, the album (which consists of studio in addition to live material) shot to the top of the charts and stayed there. Featuring elaborate cover artwork by Robert Crumb, known for his Keep On Truckin’ and Fritz The Cat cartoons, Cheap Thrills became a 60′s icon and not just because of the music.

A classic album and an important part of Rock history, this album is ‘a time capsule for one of rock’s most distinguished singers.’

JANIS JOPLIN - I GOT THEM OL KOZMIC BLUES AGAIN MAMA!

JANIS JOPLIN – I GOT THEM OL KOZMIC BLUES AGAIN MAMA! [MOVLP465]

Janis Joplin decided to make a sharp turn after Cheap Thrills [MOVLP464], and abandoned her previous band Big Brother And The Holding Company. Her new band, the Kozmic Blues Band provided a tighter, more soulful approach to the blues rock ‘Big Brother’ is known for. By going solo, Joplin made a crucial point: she’s got soul for miles on end.

Featuring a horn section and a stronger emphasis on organ, I Got Them Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama! yielded soul burners “Try (Just A Little Bit Harder)”, “Work Me Lord” and “As Good As You’ve Been To This World”, as well as slower tracks like “Maybe” and “Kozmic Blues”. Hearing is believing!
