Editorial Reviews

A posthumous live double that's evenly divided between a '68 set with Big Brother & the Holding Company and a 1970 date with her Full Tilt Boogie band.

Her voice sounds more mature and complex also.
Emperor Scott
Every note she sang, carried so much sorrow, anger, and loneliness, in opposistion to her optomistic striving for LOVE and BEAUTY.
W. T. Hoffman
There is only one complaint about one of the songs.
Steven C. Schuller

This album (originally on 2LPs), was the only IN CONCERT album of Janis, until that BIG BROTHER and the HOLDING COMPANY FEATURING JANIS JOPLIN LIVE AT WINTERLAND 1968 came out on CD back in 1998. This orginal JOPLIN IN CONCERT album is fantastic, and provides an insightful look at JANIS's complete career. The first part of the CD is with BIG BROTHER (tracks 1,2, 4-7 ), recorded in mid 1968, except for the song EGO ROCK and ALL IS LONELINESS, which was from a "reunion" of Janis with Big Bro in 1970. For those who are fans of the CHEAP THRILLS CD (which was mostly recorded live), then you'll recognise a lot of this "SOUND", since they are simply outtakes from the same set of concerts from april to June '68 when CHEAP THRILLS was recorded. So much is made of Big Brother having a horrible sound, but to me they sound like a good, grungy blues rock band. Had they sounded slick, mechanical and over rehearsed, I don't think I'd like the band as much, even WITH Janis' vocals. BIG BROTHER LIVE in 1968 sounds EXACTLY what they are--a bunch of drugged up, drunk hippies who live together, playing music for the sheer ecstacy of communial sound. The sound quality here is fine as well, since it's obvious they were still looking for numbers to complete their CHEAP THRILLS album, with these well multi track recorded songs. (FLOWER IN THE SUN, one of Janis' early rarities, is a stand out number here.)

The second half of the CD are songs recorded with FULL TILT BOOGIE BAND, during their june-junly 1970 tour of Canada on the FESTIVAL EXPRESS. (check out the FESTIVAL EXPRESS DVD for more about THAT experience.) These songs hold together better than the BIG BROTHER songs. Janis wasn't a psychedelic blues goddess here, nor was she in her R&B big band soul sound, she developed with the KOSMIC BLUES band.

Can it really be 42 years since Janis Joplin's death? Like Jimi Hendrix, Joplin seemed like an immense flaming meteor that had a brief glory before crashing and burning. The sad fact, too, is that none of her studio recordings ever measured up to what she could do live. Oh sure, CHEAP THRILLS, KOZMIC BLUES and PEARL all have their moments, but all you need to do is see her performance of "Ball and Chain" in MONTEREY POP or the excerpts from her sets during the FESTIVAL EXPRESS to get that Janis Joplin working an audience was Janis Joplin at her finest. IN CONCERT probably does as good a job as any audio recording can do at showing in full measure the two ends of her career; the rise of her with Big Brother and the Holding Company, and the last wave of her with the Full Tilt Boogie Band just before her death. It's still exhilerating to hear Janis wailing "Down On Me" with James Gurley cranking out some primo psych guitar along with her, as is listening to a heart-stopping performance of "Get It While You Can" with Full Tilt Boogie, with a stage-patter preamble that breaks the heart, since we all know what happened to her. All the points inbetween are a rush to hear, and even if the version of "Ball and Chain" included here doesn't close out the album quite as dynamically as the version on CHEAP THRILLS, it comes awful close.

They don't make 'em like Janis Joplin anymore.

14 Tracks, "Ego Rock" is an interesting track with a male singer, not specified when it plays, interesting tracks all, performances... Down On Me, Bye Bye Baby, All is Loneliness, Piece of My Heart, Road Block, Flower In The Sun, Summertime, Ego Rock, Half Moon, Kosmic Blues, Move Over, Try (Just a Little Bit Harder), Get it While You Can, Ball and Chain. there are songs that do not seem to be on the other works, but the songs that are the same are different recordings, takes. Am glad to have this in my blues & rock collection, makes me wish she had not "self destructed" with Heroin in Hollywood, CA Oct. 4, 1970. I do not love it, start with the best 3, Pearl (1971), "I Got Dem' Ol' Kosmic Blues Again Mama" (1969) with 3 bonus tracks (Dear Landlord - Outake, Summertime, Piece of My Heart"), & "Cheap Thrills" with Big Brother & Holding Company (1968) . I recommend this, interesting monolog at intro to "Try". Makes me smile, she has that sense of irony that helps many of us cope with tough times. Recommended album worth your $$ - was mine. -30-

Janis Joplin was truely the voice of an artist completely in the music around her. She used her voice as an instrument in the soundscape of the song. And it was all natural what was coming out in the music...not being thought of but rather happening as the music progressed. A real genius with her own contributions, not just a vocalist screaming into a microphone. I enjoy her live like this cd or polished in the studio. A unfortunate loss with her untimely passing. This is all my humble opinion, of course.

I ordered this cd recently and loved it. I bought this album back in the early 80's from the PX when I was stationed in Germany. There is only one complaint about one of the songs. It's the song, Ego Rock which is a great song but it sounds scratchy as if it was recorded from an album. The rest of the cd has great sound quality and brought back alot of memories.
