Wicked Woman is a live recording of Janis Joplin's final concert before her death. The tracks were composed by recordings in the audience.
The performance of Janis Joplin and her Full Tilt Boogie Band took place in Harvard Stadium among an audience of approximately 40,000. For the performance, the band utilized loaned amplifiers after their own were stolen while in Boston. Despite the setback, Joplin is still noted for giving a soulful performance.
Three tracks,"Half Moon"," Mercedes Benz", and "My Baby", would be a part of Joplin's final studio album, Pearl. It would be released January 11, 1971.
