JANIS JOPLIN Album ‘PEARL’ Came Out 50 Years Ago Today

Back in time…

11 January 2021

Artist: JANIS JOPLIN
January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970

Album: PEARL 2nd and final LP
Released: 11 January 1971 – 50 years ago today,
3 months after she passed away

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!

Key tracks: Move Over / Cry Baby / Me and Bobby McGee

– MOVE OVER –

– CRY BABY

– ME AND BOBBY MCGEE –

JANIS JOPLIN Passed Away 50 Years Ago – Only 27

The wonderful JANIS JOPLIN with her unique hoarse voice passed away 50 years ago today, on 4 October 1970, after an accidental heroin overdose. She was only 27 just like Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and blues pioneer Robert Johnson. Pretty creepy if you ask me. She was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall
of Fame in 1995.

Piece Of My Heart‘ and ‘Me And Bobby McGee‘ are two of her most famous songs…

– PIECE OF MY HEART

– ME AND BOBBY MCGEE –
