Combination of the Two (Great Broad)

Doc: My dad used to play a song where an announcer at the start of the song said something about a “great broad.” Do you have any idea which song that is? Thanks in advance. - Anonymous

Anon: Yes, I know the song. It’s “Combination of the Two” by Big Brother & the Holding Company. The announcer (Bill Graham) says, “Four gentlemen and one great, great broad. Big Brother and the Holding Company.” You can listen if you click here.

The song is from the group’s 1968 album titled “Cheap Thrills,” and you can read all about it if you click here.
