This collection celebrates the career of a true R'n'B and Rock'n'Roll pioneer, and one who Janis Joplin recognized as a role model, not only as a singer but for her uninhibited attitude to expressing her sexuality; she was known for her tough, uncompromising demeanor, her powerful, soulful voice, drank heavily and was unafraid to dress in men's clothing.
