Love this album and wish there was a follow up to it with Janis. Janis didn't need the band but some of her best is here. Summertime & Piece of My Heart get a lot of the attention but Ball & Chain may be one of my favorites of all time.

Not enough superlatives to describe what an incredible talent Janis was, and all of her skills are on full display here. It was only a matter of time before she had to embark on a solo career.

Janis erupts. Her backing band, Big Brother, isn't particularly skilled but with Joplin belting away in prime form it doesn't really matter. Infused with unreal amounts of fuzz tone and sloppy hippie enthusiasm, the record is a defining artifact of its era.

To me this is the best album Janis would ever be part of. Better than anything from after she went solo.

Iconic rock album. Best Janis Joplin record, much better than Pearl IMO. Surprised this webiste doesn't see it in quite a high light as most other music sites do.

Janis almost sounds better as part of a band. Here, she sounds a little more focused, even as she wails and belts it out with the best of them. The creation of a legend.
