Notes: A nice early CD bootleg of Janis and Big Brother. All the tracks are live cuts, but there is little recording information given as to where and exactly when these cuts were recorded. Back cover simply indicates all tracks except #3+4 were recorded in San Francisco (probably the Fillmore West) and tracks #3+4 being recorded in Los Angeles. All tracks as indicated date to 1967. Sound fidelity is generally good to excellent, and all tracks are in stereo and originate with soundboard recordings. Keeping in mind the era of live recordings, these are good to excellent. Ball and Chain has the first few seconds faded in, but the rest of the tracks are complete. The recording dates of 1967 make sense, as it is definately Big Brother as Janis' back up band, and Janis is in excellent voice. -Cooley-.
