    Description

    Janis Joplin Signed Big Brother & the Holding Company LP (Mainstream S/6099, 1967). Big Brother's first studio album, signed by Janis on the cover: "Janis Joplin [Heart]" in blue ink. The album is also signed by "Ray" on the front and back of the cover, though his identity is unknown. The album is also accompanied by two reprinted photographs of a Janis performing with Big Brother at an unknown venue and another more candid shot of her kneeling behind an audience member. The album was released in the summer of 1967 after the band's breakout performance at the Monterey Pop Festival. It was a minor chart success and produced "Down on Me," which just missed the Top 40. Album cover and album VG5. Comes with a COA from Authentic Autographs Unlimited. COA from Heritage Auctions.
