Description by

Nine Hundred Nights tracks the brief reign of pivotal '60s psychedelic rock group, Big Brother and the Holding Company. Experience the mind-bending sound and the soulful voice that turned on a generation of rebellious youth. Witness the formation - and disintegration - of one of the most misunderstood and under-appreciated bands of the era, the band that launched Janis Joplin: Big Brother and the Holding Company. Hear the untold story in Big Brother's own words. Includes D.A. Pennebaker's rarely-seen live Generation Club footage of "Piece Of My Heart," and "Comin' Home," their breakout performance of "Ball And Chain" and the unreleased "Combination Of The Two" from Monterey Pop Festival.

Product Description:

Though its wildly successful career was brief, blues-rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company was one of the major groups of the 1960s San Francisco scene, along with the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. Led by the legendary blues diva Janis Joplin (a self-destructive powerhouse whose penchant for Southern Comfort and heroin led to her early demise), the band defined the excess and urgency of the decade. NINE HUNDRED NIGHTS uses some rare footage--including famed documentarian D.A. Pennebaker's live film of a Generation Club performance, some Monterey Pop concert footage, and intimate recording sessions--to tell the story of this short-lived, magical band.


Production Notes:

  • This film shows the live Generation Club footage by D.A. Pennebaker of "Piece of My Heart" and "Coming Home."
