Cheap Thrills/Pearl

The question is just how, exactly, are you going to go wrong in purchasing these two discs in a single package? Sure, if you already possess these bona fide classics in remastered form with bonus cuts, it would be understandable to pass on them. But if you haven't got them, consider that Big Brother & the Holding Company's Cheap Thrills and Janis Joplin's final recording session, Pearl with her Kozmic Blues Band, are the real bookmarks in her career. The former album yields "Piece of My Heart," "Turtle Blues," "Ball and Chain," and her inimitable rendition of "Summertime," along with some studio outtakes and the rest , while the latter puts "Move Over," "Cry Baby," "Me ...

Not that there is any dead weight on either of these sets, especially since the sound is fully remastered. The only downside to this package is the dodgy -- make that downright crappy -- slipcase they are forced into to sell them for one price, but that can easily be recycled since each disc comes in its own jewel case. This is a FINE addition to any serious rock shelf.

    Not the Kozmic Blues Band

    Minor correction, Thom. The band on Pearl is the far superior Full Tilt Boogie Band. The Kozmic Blues Band included some of the musicians from John Till's Full Tillt Boogie Band, plus the crappy horn section, that backed Janis on I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!, the studio album produced after she left Big Brother and the Holding Company.

    If you can only have two Janis albums, these are the two to have.

    When someone finds the rumored Janis Joplin version of St. James Infirmary Blues in a dusty vault somewhere, her legacy will be complete.
