Fifty years after its release in 1968, the legendary Cheap Thrills has emerged with a multitude of unreleased tracks and rarities. This time, the opus which sold 1 million copies has kept its original title Sex, Drugs & Cheap Thrills, which was rejected at the time by Columbia for being too scandalous. Cheap Thrills, the best-seller that revealed Janis Joplin to the world, captures the essence of the Cosmic Mama who devoted herself body and soul to the recordings in the summer of ’68. Her coarse voice and her quirky rock vibes are showcased in Summertime, the real emotional peak of the album.

While the seven initial tracks illustrated on the cover by the illustrator Robert Crumb, with their dirty, raw sound, may seem to be live recordings, only Ball and Chain was recorded at the Winterland Ballroom concert in San Francisco on April 12th, 1968. From Combination Of The Two, a six-minute jam between Sam Andrew III and Joplin, to the blues of I Need A Man To Love and the classic rock of Oh Sweet Mary, Cheap Thrills comes together to make up 37 minutes of joy. Two years later, after leaving Big Brother & The Holding Company and having successively formed several other groups including Kozmic Blues Band, the psychedelic queen died a heroine. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

Frank Zappa, for Better or for Laughs

The more time that goes by since Frank Zappa’s passing on December 4, 1993, the more his absence is cruelly felt in the music world. It's not that we have forgotten him, but we have been searching in vain for someone to fill his boots. Frank Zappa’s genius, both cosmic and comical, has no equivalent today, this is because no one, in almost three decades, has been able to combine such a high level of musical talent with such a brilliant sense of humor. Something Zappa did so well.

Back in Black: AC/DC in all Their Glory

With 50 million copies sold, Back in Black is the second best-selling album of all time just behind Michael Jackson’s thriller. Who could have imagined that AC/DC’s seventh studio album would pick up so many awards considering their charismatic lead-singer Bon Scott’s premature death after the release of Highway to Hell. The album marked the end of their first chapter but the beginning of their second which fans of the Australian band today continue to relish…
