EDITORS’ NOTES

Few white women knew the blues as well as Joplin, and this collection showcases her most iconic moments. Her soul shines through the rib-rattling wail of “Piece of My Heart,” while “Me and Bobby McGee” marries her aching voice to classic country storytelling. A live take of “Down On Me” illustrates her command of the stage while fronting the blues rock powerhouse Big Brother & The Holding Company.
