"As a result of their galvanizing performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967, Big Brother & the Holding Co. and their lead singer Janis Joplin were quickly thrust into the national spotlight. Because of existing contractual obligations however, it would be more than a year before the band was able to take advantage of all the good cheer. BG124 represents a time when Big Brother was poised for stardom, yet without an album. A few months after these shows, "Cheap Thrills" would be released and shoot to number one. A few months after that, Janis Joplin would leave Big Brother for a solo career."
