Terre Haute pressing variant of the original US release,
as indicated by a "T" etched in the runout areas.

Released in a Gatefold cover on a red "360 sound" label with white lettering.

Although Janis Joplin has a release-wide vocal credit (and indeed sings on every song), on the individual song credits, only 'Sam' is credited for vocals on Tracks A1 and B2.

Track A3 is incorrectly credited to Gershwin Bros. on the front cover, though the label correctly credits George Gershwin and DuBose Heyward.

Track B3 is credited to W. M. Thornton on the label, and "Big Mama" Thornton on the front cover.

Live material recorded at Bill Graham's Fillmore Auditorium (tracks A1, A2 & B3). Turtle Blues "Vibes" courtesy of Barney's Beanery. Approved By Hell's Angels Frisco

Tracks A1 to A3, B1, B2 published by ASCAP. Tracks A4 and B3 published by BMI.

Stereo "360 Sound". Manufactured by Columbia Records/CBS, Inc. Litho in USA. Printed in USA. Rear cover photo © Thomas Weir 1967.
