Cheap Thrills is a studio album by American rock band Big Brother and the Holding Company. It was their last album with Janis Joplin as lead singer. For Cheap Thrills, the band and producer John Simon incorporated recordings of crowd noise to give the impression of a live album, for which it was subsequently mistaken by listeners. Only the final song, a cover of "Ball and Chain", had been recorded live (at The Fillmore in San Francisco).

Cheap Thrills, the major-label debut of Janis Joplin, was one of the most eagerly anticipated, and one of the most successful, albums of 1968. Joplin and her band Big Brother & the Holding Company had earned extensive press notice ever since they played the Monterey Pop Festival in June 1967, but for a year after that their only recorded work was a poorly produced, self-titled album that they'd done early in their history for Mainstream Records; and it took the band and the best legal minds.

Janis Joplin with Big Brother and The Holding Company - Summertime & I Need A Man To Love. The album was initially named Sex, Dope and Cheap Thrills, but Columbia asked them to shorten it to just Cheap Thrills. The original album cover photo of the band naked in a hotel room bed was also unsatisfactory, so underground comic-book artist R. Crumb was hired to create something. What was originally meant to be the back cover art became the classic cover of the album.
One of the biggest albums of 1968, Cheap Thrills was the biggest release by Big Brother & The Holding Company. The electric counter-culture cover art, as designed by Robert Crumb, is one of the most recognizable album covers of all time, perhaps rivaled by Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club. The ripping guitar solos, as well as the distinct rasp of Janis Joplin’s voice, helped propel this album to be one of the most prolific rock albums of its era and all time, complete with classics such as Piece of My Heart, Summertime, and Ball and Chain.

Equally noteworthy: the November 30 release will be issued under its originally intended title, Sex, Dope & Cheap Thrills. The announcement was made on September 18 by Columbia/Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.
