Cheap Thrills was and still is one of my all time favorite albums. One of those discs that is great from start to finish. The best version of Summertime out there IMO. Ball & Chain still blows me away everytime I listen to it. I feel that Janis was at her best when she hooked up with these guys.

Yeah, a big album back then and kids like me could actually afford an LP(long player) for the first time- recorded like it was live but not. Janis was the queen of R&R for a short time.

Janis is.well Id need more time to do it justice, but Janis is great.

With all due respect to Gregg, nobody does it to me as consistently as Janis.

And I like the Big Brother stuff too.

Yes , I loved Cheap Thrills.. thought Big Brother and Janis were great...
Such a waste and shame she passed so young.. would have loved to see how she developed and matured with the music... and how her voice would have sounded .. today

Love Janis and Big Brother and Cheap Thrills is on my list of all-time favorites. Was lucky to see Janis live with Kozmic Blues in 1969 and she totally blew my young mind away.
