      I loved Janis Joplin, not so much after the studio gave Big Brother and the Holding Company the shaft and hired simple stage bands for Janis live appearances. Someone even went as far as to print that the group wasn't good enough for Janis ? well here's a clip with the stage band, lots of glitter and brass but definitely not the drive the Holding Company had, I can see it really bugged her and it had to be different for her to get her mojo working with just a simple stage band. The second clip is an entire album Cheap Thrills, no video but definitely the real Janis Joplin, not a studio Joplin which is what she later became. Make your own decision which was best.
