15 Oct 2020

JANIS JOPLIN: 'I'm sure you've heard that I'm a new breed swinger now, the idol of my generation, a rock'n'roll singer. Yes fans, yes, it's true.'

We are pleased to announce that this official edition, created in partnership with the Janis Joplin Estate, is now available to pre-order from Genesis at

In Janis Joplin Days & Summers, Janis's personal scrapbook is revealed for the first time, compiled between 1966-1968, as the singer found her star rising. The book's in-depth text offers a fascinating, new account of the singer's extraordinary life.

With an introduction by Grace Slick and an afterword by Kris Kristofferson, the book's list of contributors includes Big Brother bandmates Peter Albin and Dave Getz, Jefferson Airplane members Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen, musicians Mick Fleetwood, Chrissie Hynde, Taj Mahal and Jimmy Page, talk show host Dick Cavett, as well as siblings Laura and Michael Joplin.

Created as a limited edition of only 2,000 signed copies, of which the first 350 are Deluxe copies, each numbered book is estate-stamped and hand-signed by Big Brother band members Peter Albin and Dave Getz, Jefferson Airplane's Jorma Kaukonen, and Janis's siblings, Laura Joplin and Michael Joplin. All copies of Days & Summers include a special 7" single containing two exceptionally rare recordings, and Deluxe copies include a signed portrait of Janis by Grace Slick.
