The late blues and soul icon Janis Joplin would have turned 70 years old this Saturday, January 19th. While we’re sure she’s ripping it up in rock star heaven with Hendrix, Jones, Morrison, and the rest of the 27 Club, down here on Earth we have another way of marking the occasion.
Throughout 2013, Sony Legacy will be highlighting one distinguished musical performer with a milestone each month. The aptly titled Artist of the Month initiative will see each artist recognized with a LP box set of their entire career, and first up is Janis Joplin. To join in the commemoration, we’re giving away one copy of said box set, Janis Joplin – Classic LP Collection, featuring each of her four studio albums:
– Big Brother and the Holding Company
– Cheap Thrills
– I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama!
There are two ways to enter to win this quintessential collection. Firstly, just fill out the form below. Secondly, you can enter through our mobile app. You know the drill: click over to the iTunes or Android Store and download a copy of the app. Create your account or use sign in with Facebook, click “Giveaways” and enter follow the directions from there. Otherwise, just follow the form directions below, and be sure to follow Consequence of Sound on Twitter and Facebook.
Of course, you could also just straight up buy the box set here, but why not try to get it for free? Stay tuned for more from Sony Legacy’s Artist of the Month series.
