With Big Brother and the Holding Company, she performed the song at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 to an enthusiastic audience and critical reception. The first performance on June 17 was not filmed, so the band was persuaded to perform the song again on the next day. This shorter version (without James Gurley’s extended guitar solo) was released in the 1968 film Monterey Pop, while the longer June 17 version was released in 1995 on the Joplin compilation 18 Essential Songs. Janis Joplin – Ball And Chain (Amazing Performance at Monterey).

This was Janis’s intro to the world and they loved her! When ever she performed, people were mesmerized watching her. The Monterey Pop Festival was televised in part & independent film makers were there to document the event. Janis & her band Big Brother & The Holding Company was a good representation of the San Francisco music scene in the 60’s right along with Gracie Slick and the Jefferson Airplane. The music scene was never the same. After seeing this & other performances, turned-on, far-out people & free spirits from the US and all over the world came to San Francisco to check out the scene in the summer of 1967.
