'Janis Joplin: Days & Summers' Shipping Worldwide
20 Aug 2021
Days & Summers reveals Janis's scrapbook for the first time. Featured alongside are previously unpublished items from her personal archive, including letters she wrote home to her family and a preceding scrapbook from her senior high school years, 1956-59. Collectively, they offer a brand new perspective on the Port Arthur girl that transformed into a rock goddess, setting the world on fire with her talent.
Janis created a personal record of her meteoric rise to fame and the flowering of Sixties counterculture in which she was to play a lead role. From the singer's earliest intimate blues gigs in local coffee houses, to her first appearances with Big Brother and the Holding Company, to the band's breakthrough performance at Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967, Janis's story is remarkable. Throughout it all, she collected posters, souvenirs, press clippings, photographs and records, and annotated them with her comments.
The book has been highly anticipated by fans everywhere and received media attention from PEOPLE, Rolling Stone, GQ,
to name a few. Though the deluxe edition has sold out, a limited number of the collector copies are still available. Each book in the Days & Summers
edition is estate stamped with Janis Joplin's signature, and hand signed by Janis's siblings, Laura and Michael Joplin, Peter Albin, Dave Getz and Jefferson Airplane's Jorma Kaukonen.
