This was an amazing film about the Janis Joplin that I knew from concerts on the East Coast. A friend from NYC watched it at her time. And we both ended up singing and crying along with Joplin. I will never forget the last concert we saw together at Yale New Haven's Bowl. It started raining and she and her band had to move under a tarp. This was August before she overdosed in October. She said and I quote - "Don't bury me in Connecticut, man, bury me in California". We both watched her - dressed in purple - a tiny figure dancing and carrying a bottle of Southern Comfort.

Badly Damaged

THIS DVD was so badly damaged I could only watch a small part of it. Since I don't have a receipt I can't return it

The BEST JANIS documentary ever!

By Nikki

Comments about PBS American Masters: Janis: Little Girl Blue DVD:

I seen them all and read all the books and this documentary was, by far, the BEST JANIS documentary ever! It was so good... I bought myself a copy!
I drove 70 miles north to San Francisco to see the premier of the movie Janis way back in the 70's. This DVD is so much better, content wise, however, I do have to say, going to the theater, in SF, and experiencing the whole vibe over loosing Janis was, and alway will be, a one of a kind experience for me... a true fan who unfortunately wasn't old enough to see her live. LOVE & MISS JANIS JOPLIN!
Thanks for your music JANIS. To American Masters... thanks for making such a thoughtful documentary about her.

Best, Most Complete Janis Bio

By Snoozing Lion

from SF Bay Area

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Masters: Janis: Little Girl Blue DVD:

I was thrilled when I saw this on PBS, and just had to buy it. It's the best, most honest, most context-worthy bio of lonely genius, Janis Joplin. Her pain was so unnecessary, yet so typical of those times.

The best of an era

By Mike

from Now Hawaii, formerly Stinson Beach, Ca

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Masters: Janis: Little Girl Blue DVD:

She was raw, honest and driven. I saw her in the Peirce St Annex in '67 with Big Bros. They were rough but she was top form. Only a few people there. Several places after that as well in SF then too. She used to tool around in her psychedelic painted Porsche 911, hi as a kite. The loss to us and the the music world was terrible. The woman knew the blues... So sad. Great DVD though, Thanks.
