Janis Joplin's Greatest Hits is a compilation album by American rock singer Janis Joplin, originally released in July 1973 via Columbia Records.

This album was released around three years after Janis passed away and includes live versions of “Down On Me” and “Ball and Chain” that were included on the posthumous In Concert album released in 1972.

The songs on the album are credited to the different bands under which Janis had recorded her songs, culminating in her posthumous solo album Pearl, released in 1971.

On Pearl she recorded a Kris Kristofferson cover “Me And Bobby McGee”, which allowed Joplin to be both vulnerable and assertive. The song deservedly topped the US singles charts and despite numerous interpretations, her version remains the definitive version to this day.

This Greatest Hits package is a short summary of the vocal talents on Janis Joplin. Her impassioned approach to singing was her attraction, and she knew few boundaries when it came to her personal life and addictions, or her artistic and singing talents. Her sadly brief catalogue is marked by raw, passionate and intense honesty in her vocal performances.

Check out the tracks:  Piece of My Heart”; “Cry Baby”; “Me and Bobby McGee”; and “Ball and Chain”.

This LP record is a 2018 reissue on 150 gram black vinyl with a digital download code, pressed in Europe.
