Image of Janis Joplin


Born and raised in Port Arthur, Texas, a small Southern petroleum industry town, she gravitated to artistic interests cultivated by parents Seth and Dorothy Joplin. Janis broke with local social traditions during the tense days of racial integration, standing up for the rights of African Americans whose segregated status in her hometown seared her youthful ideals.

SUPER HITS is a fine starting point into the music of Janis Joplin.If you've always wondered what she was all about then this album gives you just some of an impressive body of work from one of the finest singers ever. Also included is the posthumously released "One Night Stand" with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, how this was passed over until 1983 is a mystery. Go get it! You won't regret this!

A Janis Compilation with a standout Single 16 Nov 2007
By G. Possert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With a small crowd, some low budget recording equipment, and a few drinks, Janis belts-out her emotional, soulful story, no holds barred, on Track 8. This is another of those CD's where the price is worth paying for one single track, that being "Turtle Blues". Joplinists are familiar with this "non-commercial" track, but those buying this CD for the more well-known cuts are in for a singular treat.

"Turtle Blues" is a raw, un-mastered Janis autobiography of sorts. There is even the crash of a breaking cocktail glass and the sounds of the glass being swept up in the room background noise. The small crowd gives her polite but sparse applause at the end... I'd pay a thousand to have been there. No matter, "ain't nobody goin' to dog her down". Except Janis herself.

For the price, you get an excellent sampling of the essential Janis 27 Mar 2008
By Priscilla Stilwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Samplers are created for the people that aren't avid fans who will go buy every album the artist ever recorded. Or for those who want to get a taste of someone's music before investing a lot. For me, that was the reason I bought this album. Cheap & basic. Now, I'm hooked on Janis, but there's not a lot of need to start with more than this. She's phenomenal, and has such a unique voice and delivery. An essential part of an American music lover's collection!
