Cheap Thrills Album Shirt:
In 1968, Big Brother and the Holding company released the Cheap Thrills album. This was their second album, and their last with Janis Joplin before she went solo. This album had cartoon artwork by underground cartoonist R. Crumb. Now we've got that cover available for you as a t-shirt!
This white shirt is 100% cotton and available in a standard adult shirt. Great for guys or women who like their shirts les fitted. We've got the shirt in size small, size medium, size large, or size extra large.
Did you know this album cover was chosen after the band's original cover idea, a photo of the group naked in bed together, was vetoed by Columbia Records? Crumb had originally intended his art for the LP back cover, with a portrait of Janis Joplin to grace the front. But Joplin—an avid fan of underground comics, especially the work of Crumb—so loved the Cheap Thrills illustration that she demanded Columbia place it on the front cover. It is number nine on Rolling Stone's list of 100 greatest album covers.
Here's a great black and white live video of Big Brother and the Holding Company doing "Ball and Chain".
