About

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
