Janis: Little Girl Blue

“If I hold back, I’m no good. I’m no good. I’d rather be good sometimes, than holding back all the time.”

Four decades after her untimely demise, Janis Joplin is as big ever.  Despite releasing only four albums during her life, Janis’ legacy extends to more than 15 greatest hits collections, reissues and live albums have been released posthumously.  Yet for all the accolades and stardom she’s earned over the years-both during her lifetime and posthumously- it’s staggering to think how much Janis suffered, how deeply she hurt, during her short life.
