The first full album featuring the incredible voice of Janis Joplin, as the singer of Big Brother
& The Holding Company
! Even at this early point, it's clear that there's some really incredible things happening with this band. Originally released on Mainstream, the production is a bit thin compared to the bigger sounding records to come, hich actually works incredibly well – as Janis's voice just tears right through in a really exciting way. The rawer Big Brother
backdrop is great, too! Titles include "Easy Rider", "Bye, Bye Baby", "Intruder", "Women Is Losers", Moondog's "All Is Lonliness", and "Down On Me".
(Original stereo Mainstream pressing. Cover has a cutout hole, a light surface wear, and a split bottom seam held with clear tape.)
