Janis Joplin wouldnt 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 Joplins electrifying vocal prowess is universally lauded her mix of compassion confidence and charm play as large a role.
