Cheap Thrills is a studio album by American rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company. It was their last album with Janis Joplin as lead singer. For Cheap Thrills, the band and producer John Simon incorporated recordings of crowd noise to give the impression of a live album, for which it was subsequently mistaken by listeners. Only the final song, a cover of "Ball and Chain", had been recorded live (at The Fillmore in San Francisco).

Big Brother & the Holding Company is the debut album of Big Brother and the Holding Company, with Janis Joplin, their main singer. Recorded during three days in December 1966 for Mainstream Records, it was released in the summer of 1967, shortly after the band's major success at the Monterey Pop Festival. Columbia took over the band's contract and re-released the album, adding two extra tracks, and putting Joplin's name on the cover  . tracks "Blindman" and "All Is Loneliness" in Los Angeles, and these were released by Mainstream as a single, which did not sell well Release.

Summertime, time, time Child, the living's easy Fish are jumping out And the cotton, Lord Cotton's high, Lord so high  . This song is one of the three covers that Big Brother recorded in Cheap Thrills. It is originally a jazz standard co-composed by George and Ira Gershwin for the opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward. Originally a lullaby, Janis passionate voice transforms it into a blues, psychedelic rock song.

Joplin and her band Big Brother & the Holding Company had earned extensive press notice ever since they played the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967, but for a year after that their only recorded work was a poorly produced, self-titled album that they'd done early in their history for Mainstream Records; and it took the band and the best legal minds.

plus musical direction by Dan "Lebo" Lebowitz! Come celebrate the music and spirit of 1969 :-D.
