Just for a Thrill was the twenty-third studio album of country music artist Ronnie Milsap. It was released in 2004 under Image Records, his first for the label. The album consisted of fourteen recordings of pop and jazz standards.

The record peaked at number 4 on Top Jazz Albums, Milsap's first appearance on the chart. Allmusic gave the album four stars, commenting that "Milsap's voice is in great shape." The review cited the tracks, "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered," "Haunted Heart," "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye," "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," and "Since I Fell for You" as being "complemented" by Milsap's "vocals and piano."[1]

Cover versions[edit]

In 2013, the renowned Spanish actress & singer Natalia Dicenta released a version of the song "Just for a Thrill" on her album Colours. GIVEN THAT THE BEST-KNOWN VERSION IS BY RAY CHARLES, BUT THE SONG HAS ALSO BEEN RECORDED BY ARETHA FRANKLIN AND SWEDEN'S LISA EKDAHL - AND WAS WRITTEN ABOUT 40 YEARS BEFORE RONNIE MISHAP RECORDED IT, I THINK CLAIMING NATALIA DICENTAL DID A 'COVER VERSION' OF MISHAP'S SONG IS MORE THAN A TAD LUDICROUS, NOT TO SAY MISLEADING. SORRY BOUT THE CAPS BUT SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH MY KEYBOARD.
