Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin remains among the most distinctive, galvanizing artists and singers in modern history. During her all-too-short time in the spotlight, she forged a lasting musical legacy both in the studio and on stage. Joplin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and given a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005. But such honors only confirm what fans already know: Janis Joplin is one of the most powerful singers that music has ever known.

Pearl

Her musical evolution followed the earthier, rootsier direction of the new decade, as reflected in her final studio album, the landmark Pearl. Embracing material such as Kris Kristofferson’s gorgeous country ballad Me and Bobby McGee and her own a cappella plaint, Mercedes Benz, the album showcased Joplin’s mastery of virtually all pop genres. The latter song was, along with a phone-message birthday greeting for John Lennon, the last thing she recorded; she died in October of 1970, and Pearl was released posthumously the following year. The quadruple-platinum set became the top-selling release of Joplin’s career and, in 2003, was ranked #122 on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”

The album was released on 11 January 1971.
