Cheap Thrills is an album by Big Brother and the Holding Company.
This is a controversial album since much of it was recorded in the studio with crowd noise mixed in to give the impression that it’s a live album. The only completely live in concert recording is that of Ball & Chain. The expended version available on CD has two more live songs, Catch Me Daddy and Magic of Love.
It is, however, a convincing impression since it captures a raw, live-in-concert style energy.
