Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 8/16/73, p.50
"...Janis Joplin's GREATEST HITS is no final testament to an artist, nor is it a document of its period. It is a record for people who can't get her out of their minds, and for whom she has become some sort of ghost, a permanent image of rock's capacity for generating self-destruction....Janis Joplin, Superstar..."
Q - 1/95, p.273
3 Stars - Good - "...It's not so much the timbre of her voice that stands out...but the sheer cathartic vitality that emanates from within. It's a soul-deep, blues act that was emphatically matched by her backing bands..."

Product Description:

GREATEST HITS spans the length of Janis Joplin's recording career, and features songs recorded with each of her three bands--Big Brother & The Holding Co., the Kozmic Blues Band, and the Full Tilt Boogie Band.
Producers: Paul Rothchild, Bob Shad, John Simon, Gabriel Mekler.
Reissue producer: Bob Irwin.
Originally released on Columbia (32168). Includes liner notes by Jaan Uhelszki.
Digitally remastered by Vic Anesini at Sony Music Studios, New York, New York.
Personnel: Janis Joplin (vocals, guitar).
Recording information: 12/13/1966-10/01/1970.
Photographers: Don Hunstein; Jim Marshall ; Daniel Kramer; Baron Wolman; Clark Pierson.
Arranger: Janis Joplin.
A solid, if skimpy, ten-track best-of that gathers the most important songs from Janis Joplin's solo career, as well as her stint with Big Brother & the Holding Company. The compilation 18 Essential Songs offers a wider selection, but does not include the original version of "Me and Bobby McGee," which makes Greatest Hits the better purchase for those who only want one Janis Joplin disc, even if it isn't definitive. The 1999 CD reissue adds two bonus tracks, "Maybe" and "Mercedes Benz." ~ Steve Huey
