Nine Hundred Nights - Big Brother and the Holding Company
with Janis Joplin

How long does it take to start a fire? To counter a culture? To rise and fall? "Nine Hundred Nights" tracks the brief reign of pivotal 1960's psychedelic rock group Big Brother and the Holding Company. Experience the mind-bending sound and soulful voice that turned on a generation of rebellious youth. Witness the formation--and disintegration--of one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated bands of the era, the band that launched Janis Joplin: Big Brother and the Holding Company. Hear the previously untold story in Big Brother’s own words.

Includes D.A. Pennebaker’s rarely seen live Generation Club footage of "Piece of My Heart" and "Comin’ Home"; the breakout performance of "Ball and Chain" and the unreleased "Combination of the Two" from Monterey Pop; Cheap Thrills recording sessions of "Summertime"; and rehearsal and studio performances.
