BIG BROTHER & THE HOLDING COMP BALL & CHAIN Limited Deluxe Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
First band-authorised issue on vinyl for these superbly restored. live tracks by the Bay Area Psych-Blues legends. Big Brother & The Holding Company were leading lights on San Francisco's psychedelic scene in the late 1960s, alongside Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead. Their brand of blues-inspired psychedelic folk rock epitomised the Bay Area sound of the time. Much of the band's success was down to their charismatic lead singer, Janis Joplin, who would go on to enjoy a highly successful solo career, albeit one cut short by her death in 1970 from a drug overdose. Record One comprises ten tracks originally recorded in January 1967 at The Matrix club and only recently rediscovered by surviving band members some four decades on. Those on Record Two were recorded in July 1966 at California Hall and prior, to release on CD by Charly in 2006, had hitherto only been available on poor quality bootlegs. Presented here in pristine sound, this deluxe 2LP set comprises recordings made at the height of the band's creativity, having been 24-bit re-mastered for release by the group themselves. Record One - Recorded Live At The Matrix, San Francisco 1967 Record Two - Recorded Live At California Hall, San Francisco 1966
