Pearl is the second and final solo studio album by Janis Joplin, released posthumously on Columbia Records, in January 1971.

Pearl was the final album with her direct participation, and the only Joplin album recorded with the Full Tilt Boogie Band, her final touring unit.

This album peaked at #1 on the Billboard 200, holding that spot for nine weeks. It has been certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.

Just like Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison (who both died at the height of their music careers), Janis Joplin was also, very much, the absolute embodiment of rock'n'roll of her generation (the 1960s).

Known as "The Queen of Psychedelic Blues", Janis Joplin (born in Texas) was, indeed, a very powerful, blues-inspired singer who always gave her cheering fans a great, emotionally-charged show on stage.

Sadly enough, Janis had a decidedly troubled personality which, in turn, partially contributed to her untimely death (at 27) from a heroin overdose (compounded with alcohol) in 1970.

Pearl would be Janis Joplin's fourth and final studio album, which was released shortly after her death. Out of this CD's 10 tracks, 3 of my favourites are - Move Over, Cry Baby, and Get It While You Can.
