Big Brother and the Holding Company

Richard Younger, Midtown Resident, 25 July 1997

"Four gentleman and one great, great broad."

Watching Big Brother and the Holding Company at Manny's Car Wash a few weeks back, I couldn't help but be reminded of the words spoken by rock impresario Bill Graham at the beginning of their "live" 1968 album, Cheap Thrills.
