Live big brother

While pearl may be a "better" album, I don't think it matches the live intensity that big brother could. Really raw and sometimes sloppy, they were a true rock n roll band.

This is why people love Joplin!

If you want commercialized over-produced crap, buy joplin's Greatest Hits. If you want REAL Joplin, buy this. This is the true drug and alcohol fueled Joplin & Big Brother that made them phenominal in the 60's!

That was not the point

No, these guys weren't great musicians, but the point was about feelings and not notes. It's too bad Janis felt she had to get a "better" band. If you want musical proficiency, listen to Jazz or Classical. Rock was not supposed to be letter-perfect music.
