Synopsis

Amazon.com
More than Cheap Thrills or even Pearl, Greatest Hits has helped keep Janis Joplin's short-lived recording career alive for listeners who came along after her 1970 death. "Me and Bobby McGee" is the biggest draw, of course--it was a posthumous No. 1 single--but the rest is equally exciting. Despite the familiarity of the titles here, this goes far beyond the merely serviceable, particularly on a previously unreleased, utterly smashing live version of "Down on Me" cut with Big Brother. Finally, the cover photo of Janis smiling in a sunny park is as poignant a shot of her as exists. --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

Good appetizer
Damian P. Gadal | Santa Barbara, CA USA | 08/24/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This release is a good appetizer for the uninitiated and is always good for a quick Joplin fix. I think it's been established that there are better Joplin Greatest Hits releases, but this one isn't bad!"
