17 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 19 Jun. 2002
Format: Audio CD
Cheap Thrills is a great, raucous, exuberant celebration of life with Joplin's at times desperate, always intensely emotional vocals and the enthusiastic playing of Big Brother in their powerful acid rock/psychedelic onslaught. Piece Of My Heart sweeps the listener along in its maelstrom of sound, while Combination Of The Two has a certain addictive, hypnotic quality that is the trademark of great rock music. Summertime and Ball & Chain are innovative interpretations of the Gershwin and Big Mama Thornton tunes respectively, while of the added tracks, Magic of Love is the only one that matches the intensity of the original album's songs. Because of the Big Brother onslaught, it does sometimes seem that there's a cosmic battle taking place between Joplin's vocals and the band's wall of sound, but this creates a further element of tension that adds to the overall force of these performances. This is a great show of Joplin's magic.

Format: Audio CD
This is West Coast psychedelia at its best - and recorded live. Janis belts them out but don't underestimate the power of those twin guitars from Sam Andrew and Jim Gurley. They're transendental at time, climactic at others - hammering away as the perfect foil for those screaming rasping vocals. It's improvised at times but everyone knows where each other is and where they're going. Then it all comes back together behind Dave's drums right on cue and into the next section. The bonus tracks are a bonus too - certainly not just fillers. Okay, so 'Piece of my Heart' and 'Ball and Chain' are the stand out tracks but I love 'Sweet Mary'- partly because Janis doesn't have the feature vocal but mainly for the soaring meandering guitar work and the oh so archetypal sixties hippy sound.

Rest your soul Janis. When I listen to this and the early stuff I gotta believe your happiest years were when you were in a gigging band. The later stuff's good but it's orchestrated and produced and somehow lacking. This is raw, earthy, full of passion, a sense of being and togetherness. Big Brother are still gigging and play an excellent set if you see them on tour. Certainly worth checking out as they're usually at affordable and intimate venues. Seminal stuff.

Format: Audio CD
Monterey 1967. Mama Cass Elliot is captured on film reacting open-mouthed to Janis and the boys ripping through Ball and Chain, Hurley's wailing SG sounding at once apocalyptic and soul reviving. Big Brother were an awesome band and this, for me, is Joplin's best work. The Full Tilt Boogie band don't come close. Cheap Thrills serves as a window on the late - sixties San Francisco scene, sure, but the music is timeless and visceral - essential.

That's what the announcer says at the beginning of this live/studio masterpiece... and for good reason because what follows is an outstanding example of blues-rock singing at its very best. But there's a lot more on offer here than just the touchstone that catapulted Janis Joplin to international stardom. First off, the band, in particular James Gurley's guitarwork, lay down some seriously impressive playing that's not only fully up to the task of keeping pace with her but which provides the perfect backdrop for her raw, stunningly powerful vocals. Then there's the quality and range of the songs themselves (other than the unnecessary, second rate "bonus tracks") including the "hippy" enthusiasm of "Combination of the Two", the driving acid-rock of "Sweet Mary" & "I Need a Man to Love", and the quite outstanding electric blues of "Summertime", "Piece of my Heart" & "Ball & Chain". And finally, the whole "style" of the album itself with it's quintessential Robert Crumb artwork, its atmospheric, often heavily reverbed sound, the enthusiastic audience reaction and the announcer's wonderfully laid-back contributions, all of which combine to capture what San Francisco's hugely influential ballroom scene was all about. A perfect time capsule that stands the test of time because it's more than good enough to and which, on the way, showcases a truly great singer on absolutely top form.

Format: Audio CD
Janis Joplin is totally electrifying on this album, which also gives the band Big Brother and the Holding Company quite a lot of space, as you hear on the brilliant intro number, Combination Of The Two. The whole thing has a very sixties feel, as others have said, but is also timeless in that her voice can never date - you only have to hear it to feel the emotion as if she was singing it right in the present. Her take on Summertime is unique, I Need A Man To Love just aches as only Janis can - just thinking about it is moving ... Piece Of My Heart is one of her greatest tracks, caught here in a superb version, while Ball And Chain is different from the Greatest Hits version and just as good, maybe a bit more weary in tone. With four extra tracks the album gives you more than the original LP, compensation for having Robert Crumb's brilliant cover reduced so much, perhaps? There are also several classic photos of Janis and the band; she was a particularly interesting subject because she had such candour, an almost child-like quality.

This album is A Really good mix of music and that woman has a brilliant passionate Marge simpson voice.

There song range from cover to original of blues standards and things and I just love every single song on it.
the music itself is really rather good too. but it is the vocals that stand out Janis has the most awesomely passionate voice I have heard for along time. you feel every note she sings and it resonates too and makes you sing along.
Brilliant album
