    For the second time, Sony issued the three best albums in Janis Joplin's catalog -- I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama, Pearl, and Big Brother & the Holding Company's Cheap Thrills -- in a slipcased three-CD box; the difference is that this latter package contains the remastered versions of those three albums, which were released individually in 1999. All of the albums feature bonus tracks, quality remastering, and expanded liner notes; there's nothing here you can't get on the individual issues, but it's a handy way to pick up all three at once if you haven't gotten them already. ~ Steve Huey
