My son bought this and I was so impressed with all of the bonus tracks that aren't on the original albums. I love the Big Brother stuff in particular but I can't knock anything here. It's a pretty comprehensive collection of the studio stuff and a great price for a 5 CD set. At our age it's the ideal gift for someone's Pearl (30 years?) wedding anniversary.

This is ageless stuff that has matured like a good Californian red wine. Powerful vintage. Janis is always raw and ballsy and there's enough difference between these albums not to feel you'd have been better just buying the best (whichever that is). The first Big Bro album has a naivety and innocence from right at the conception of Flower Power. Cheap Thrills is just seminal. Pearl is a shift to the bigger orchestrated sound. Kozmic Blues is a tight brassy sound. The bonus CD is a major pearl in this box set.

The music is, absolutely, wonderful. Takes me right back. Just as enjoyable now, as it was in the sixties.

The only negative - given, I first listened to Janis in the sixties and given my age now, the print size on the CD sleeves and in the accompanying booklet, could have done with being two or three font sizes larger. Ahem!

Wow. What a box set! I came to Janis Joplin through a rather circuitous route. I am a fan of Kris Kristofferson, and a friend recommended that I listen to her rendition of `Me and Bobby McGee', one of my favourite tracks of his. I was totally blown away by her stunning performance - such an incredibly powerful voice, almost wild and untamed, that just took the song to a whole new level. Based on this I decided to listen to more of her work, and after a bit of research I decided to go for this box set rather than a simple best of or a particular album.

And am I glad I did! Collected here are all four albums that Joplin released in her all to short life, and an extra disc of unreleased rarities. Each of the albums also contains a wealth of extras such as contemporary singles. As far as I can tell there isn't much of her recorded work left out. There is a big informative booklet with many decent pictures, and the rather eye catching artwork is apparently taken from the picture she had painted on her car. As box sets go I have to say it's very well done, comprehensive, informative and the music presented in a logical fashion.

So much for the quality of the release - what about the music? Well, it's excellent. There is track after track of Joplin's unique blend of Californian hippie rock, blues and country, all delivered with her distinctive style. Her version of Summertime, covered by almost every musician on the planet, is head shoulders above all the rest. Totally unique, so raw and powerful. It's sublime. And there is just track after track of the same. If pressed I would say that `I got dem ol kozmic blues again mama!' is my favourite album, but it's a close run thing, the others are equally as good.

..if Janis was alive she would have had bought this box instead of anything else. it's got the most beautiful psychedelic pictures outside on the box and the best song inside of the box. it is limited edition, it is the one cd collection everyone needs to buy. it includes quite a few previously unreleased songs and also some live recordings from woodstock..etc. all the songs that you ever wanted to listen to: from the classics (piece of my heart, summertime..) to the not very well known (little girl blue, call mama..) it is all there in a wonderful box. don't miss it.
