Muze PNote After a relatively obscure indie debut album, Big Brother's unforgettable appearance at the Monterey Pop Festival led to CHEAP THRILLS, their major label bow. Its R. Crumb cover art made it a visual standout, but the visceral power contained within heralded Janis Joplin's arrival as a new countercultural blues-rock diva. Partially recorded live at San Francisco's Fillmore, CHEAP THRILLS showed Joplin's affinity for the blues, as she effortlessly covered the standard "Summertime" as well as her heroine Big Mama Thornton's "Ball & Chain." Band conflicts caused by Joplin's high profile within the group resulted in her leaving soon afterward for a solo career.

Artist Overview

Texas-born blues-rock singer Janis Joplin's sadly short career saw her change from coffehouse folkie into a feminist blues icon for the psychedelic '60s generation, all in the space of four years. Though she started out as a solo singer, it was as the frontwoman for Bay Area acid-blues-rockers Big Brother & The Holding Company that she skyrocketed to fame, her outsized voice, image, and personality making her natural star material. Eventually, she proved too big for the confines of Big Brother and went the solo route. A breakthrough album was recorded just before her early death, adding a tragic aura to her small body of work.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (10/1/99, p.75)
- "...a blues-rock apotheosis, with Joplin's primal scream scraping up against Big Brother's willfully deranged, acid-stoked boogie..." - Rating: A-

Q (11/99, p.156)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...a raw fiery collection that includes the hits 'Piece Of My Heart', 'Summertime' and 'Ball & Chain'..."
