Janis Joplin/Big Brother and Noel Redding Autographs. In 1966, Joplin's bluesy vocal style attracted the attention of the psychedelic band Big Brother and The Holding Company, and she was quickly recruited to be their lead singer. Joplin performed with the band for two-and-a-half years before striking out on a solo career; she died from a heroin overdose less than a year later. Included are 5" x 3" pieces of paper signed in ink by Joplin and Big Brother members Sam Andrew, James Gurley, and David Getz, plus a smaller slip of paper signed by late Jimi Hendrix Experience bassist Noel Redding. All are affixed to a 5.5" x 10" piece of construction paper, and in overall Very Fine condition.
