Janis Joplin’s Greatest Hits is a 1973 collection of hit songs by American singer-songwriter Janis Joplin, who died in 1970. The album features the studio version of Me and Bobby Mcgee which is generally absent from most Joplin compilations. It also features live versions of Down On Me and Ball and Chain which were included on the In Concert album the previous year.More than Cheap Thrills or even Pearl, Greatest Hits has helped keep Janis Joplin’s short-lived recording career alive for listeners who came along after her 1970 death. “Me and Bobby McGee” is the biggest draw, of course–it was a posthumous No. 1 single–but the rest is equally exciting. Despite the familiarity of the titles here, this goes far beyond the merely serviceable. Finally, the cover photo of Janis smiling in a sunny park is as poignant a shot of her as exists.
