Product Details

The title, originally intended for their immortal 1968 debut album but nixed by Columbia Records for being too risqué, appears now for the first time on this new collection of 30 rare performances including 29 studio outtakes (25 previously unreleased) 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.

Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills includes liner notes penned especially for this commemorative release by Jefferson Airplane front-woman Grace Slick and Big Brother & The Holding Company drummer David Getz. ""Then I heard that voice,"" writes Slick. ""Good Lord--spontaneous explosions of every emotion--no holds barred.... Janis had no trouble sliding from the apron clad fifties into the no bra sixties. We all took every advantage of the new freedoms, and it was reflected in the music.... This album, because of its worldwide success, made it possible for everybody to hear the phenomenon that was previously limited to the San Francisco Bay Area. Now, a new generation gets the 'Cheap Thrills' experience to enjoy."
