The book contains an excellent introduction by Sam Andrew, who probably knew her more than anyone else. He was with her in the Big Brother & the Holding Co. band and the Kozmic Blues band.
This book is packed with details about Janis's life & career.
The book contains an appendix that covers a time line of Janis's life, beginning with her birth on January 19,1943, in Port Arthur, Texas, continuing through her life & career, her death, and ends with The American Music Masters Tribute to Janis, including Lucinda Williams singing a song about Janis on November 14, of 2009.
This book includes many illustrations from Janis's High School Years, from her career, up to tribute performances, after her death. If you like Janis, you'll love this book. Thanks!!!
P.S. I'd like to add a personal note. If you like Janis, then you'd probably like her exhibits at the Gulf Coast Music Museam, on the Texas Gulf Coast, near her home town of Port Arthur, Texas. Also, at the Hard Rock Cafe in San Antonio, there is a stainded glass mural of Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin, & Stevie Ray Vaughan, all native Texans, on display there. Thanks again!!!
