180-gram 45 RPM double LP, Limited, numbered edition

Mobile Fidelity reissues tout enhanced spaciousness, punchiness, pacing, dynamics, and texture: Cheap Thrills sounds as close to live as music gets.

Big Brother and the Holding Company's Cheap Thrills is the quintessential album to spring from the outcome of the Summer of Love. Best known as Janis Joplin's major-label debut, the 1968 set arrived when the countercultural movement was in full swing and before co-optation, drugs, and violence signaled the fall of the era. Ranked No. 338 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, it puts a female singer in the prominent position traditionally given to a male and showcases a band pouring a potent cocktail of fiery psychedelic, blues, and folk sounds that informed the unfettered creativity of the San Francisco scene.
