Big Brother & The Holding Company - Live Thrills mp3 album

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 and the Holding Company’s ‘Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills’ Gets Reissue. Janis Joplin’s final album with band’s 50th anniversary set collects rare performances, outtakes. The new reissue revisits the 1968 sessions that produced the chart-topping Cheap Thrills and comprises alternate song takes. It also offers a new version of Ball and Chain. On the original Cheap Thrills, dubbed-in crowd noise was added to mimic a live album, despite Ball and Chain being the only track that was recorded at a concert

Big Brother & the Holding Company. Bill Graham utters these words at the very start of the San Francisco band's classic Cheap Thrills album, introducing the band – not just Janis Joplin and a bunch of guys who wandered onstage to back her up. Released on Aug. 12, 1968, Cheap Thrills was Big Brother's second album, but in a way it's their first real statement. The band's self-titled debut from the previous year was released after its breakthrough performance at the Monterey International Pop Festival. Cheap Thrills – which wasn't quite the live album it claimed to be, since studio recordings and overdubs make up a bulk of the tracks – was a huge hit, staying at No. 1 for eight weeks. Janis always sounded good, take after take," he later told Mix.

Big Brother and the Holding Company is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1965 as part of the same psychedelic music scene that produced the Grateful Dead, Quicksilver Messenger Service and Jefferson Airplane. They are best known as the band that featured Janis Joplin as their lead singer.

Back in 1968, when Big Brother & the Holding Company made their second album, the LP they planned to release was scuttled by the record company. The title was shortened from Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills to just Cheap Thrills, and the studio songs they recorded were mixed in with audience sounds to give listeners the impression it was a concert album – partly because San Francisco bands were known for their powerhouse live shows at the time.
