AllMusic/Steve Huey wrote: Janis Joplin’s second masterpiece
(after Cheap Thrills), Pearl was designed as a showcase for her
powerhouse vocals, stripping down the arrangements that had
often previously cluttered her music or threatened to drown her
out. Pearl’s power leaves the listener to wonder what else Joplin
could have accomplished, but few artists could ask for a better
final statement.”
Score: 5/5.

Janis Joplin: “I’m one of those regular weird people.”

TUTV: That voice! A pearl of a record! Janis 4ever!
