Big Brother & The Holding Company - Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills 2 x CDs

SKU 28-SNYL586352.2
If, like me, you think that Big Brother were a terrific little psychedelic combo who were unjustly overlooked and possibly even unfairly dismissed as ‘not very good’ in the light of the discovery of the (admittedly great) greatness of their singer, Janis Joplin, this release of outtakes and etc from their great second album – released under the name they originally envisioned for their second album – will blow your mind. Even without dope!
For me, Big Brother was far and away her best and most sympathetic ensemble and Cheap Thrills her best album by far, so if you love psychedelic rock OR Janis Joplin, this album is a very welcome thing!

“Issued on the 50th anniversary of the original album’s release, Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills consists of rare and unreleased tracks recorded during the sessions for the 1968 LP.
The album, which was the name the band had originally chosen for the record before Columbia deemed it too controversial, includes 29 studio outtakes and a live performance of "Ball and Chain" from an April 12, 1968, concert at San Francisco's Winterland. Only five of the tracks have been previously officially available on various reissues.”
