Today’s forgotten oldie is one of the great songs from 1968’s album “Cheap Thrills”, by Big Brother & the Holding Company with the legendary Janis Joplin on vocals. The album was #1 on the Billboard top 200 albums for 8 weeks, that is a solid performance. The album is a classic, a must hear record from an amazing time in rock music. Janis left Big Brother shortly afterwards, but the album remains one of the great records of rock, though largely forgotten today. The song “Piece of My Heart” is also a classic, and also largely forgotten.
