CHEAP THRILLS has always been a favorite album of mine
Combination of the Two" starts the album off with a bang, then segues into "I Need a Man to Love", what I think is the best song on the original album! "Summertime" and "Piece of My Heart" are classic Janis standards, "Turtle Blues" goes back to Janis' Texas roots, "Oh Sweet Mary" gets as acid-rock as you can get, and "Ball and Chain" finishes off what has been quite an experience!
hard, deep, dark, FANTASTIC rockin'! .
Janis and Big Brother and the Holding Company recording Summertime for their Columbia album Cheap Thrills. The album was released in late 1968 and sold over one million copies that year. Shortly after the release of Cheap Thrills, Janis left the band to persue a solo career in music.
