Big Brother & The Holding Company
Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills 2LP
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Big Brother & The Holding Company’s major label debut with the premiere release of Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills. Released at last under its original title (nixed by the label as too controversial a half century ago),Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills restores the band’s vision and intent in an essential new collection of rare performances including previously unreleased studio outtakes from the mythic 1968 sessions that generated Big Brother & The Holding Company’s Cheap Thrills, the breakout album that introduced Janis Joplin to the world. Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills debuts a previously unreleased live performance of “Ball and Chain,” recorded live at Winterland Ballroom on April 12, 1968.
Album includes a digital download.
