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, which 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 light wear and aging, and a cutout hole.)
