Big Brother & The Holding Company (Janis Joplin) - Sex, Dope And Cheap Thrills [2LP] (rare and unreleased tracks from Cheap Thrills sessions, gatefold)
50th Anniversary Edition On Double LP!
Features Previously Unreleased Material!
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of Big Brother & The Holding Company's iconic second studio album and major label debut Cheap Thrills, which featured and introduced the world to one of the most recognizable female vocalists in rock history, Janis Joplin. To commemorate this anniversary, Legacy releases Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills—named after the originally intended title for the 1968 album which was rejected by the label for being too controversial for the time. Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills features rare performances from the original album sessions, 13 of which are previously unreleased, including unheard versions of favorites such as "Summertime", "I Need a Man to Love" and the smash hit "Piece of My Heart". Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills also features liner notes penned especially for this commemorative release by Jefferson Airplane front-woman Grace Slick and Big Brother & The Holding Company drummer David Getz.
