Janis Joplin - Pearl RIAA Certified Multi-Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Steve Appleford

Janis Joplin made the blues her own. Though she didn't live to finish this album before her 1970 death from a heroin overdose, her intense passion and frantic cries of pain and ecstasy were enough to make Pearl one of the most memorable recordings of her era. Her band does fill up some vinyl with the instrumental "Buried Alive in the Blues," but it's the vocals that make this album worth hearing these many decades later. Listen to the tortured heartbreak of "Cry Baby" or the hopeful declarations of Kris Kristofferson's "Me & Bobby McGee" and understand why Joplin remains an essential, if tragic, figure in pop. This reissue of Joplin's final album includes four live bonus tracks recorded during the 1970 Canadian Festival Express Tour.

1. Move Over8. Mercedes Benz
2. Cry Baby9. Trust Me
3. A Woman Left Lonely10. Get It While You Can
4. Half Moon11. Tell Mama (Live)
5. Buried Alive In The Blues12. Little Girl Blue (Live)
6. My Baby13. Try (Just A Little Bit Harder) (Live)
7. Me And Bobby McGee14. Cry Baby (Live)
