Janis Joplin - Pearl 2LP
Audiophile double LP reissue on 180 gram, 45 RPM vinyl.
Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs
Janis Joplin wouldn't be denied on Pearl. The powerhouse vocalist had kicked her addictions, teamed with a stupendous band, and partnered with a producer that knew how to best showcase her voice on record. She came to the sessions with an armload of astonishing songs, and a burst of creative energy that mirrored her rejuvenated emotional state and undeniable spirit. You can hear it on every note of this 1971 album. While Joplin's electrifying vocal prowess is universally lauded, her mix of compassion, confidence, and charm play as large a role. And on Pearl, she burrows into deeper stylistic veins, teasing out sides of her persona and craft she'd never previously displayed. Her signature desperation, sadness, and vulnerability remain, yet Joplin also reveals a sense of humor and beatnik innocence. Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP set take Joplin and Co.'s stupendous performance to newly transcendent levels.
