Posted by Andy Cahn On April - 11 - 2012ADD COMMENTS

When Janis Joplin knew what she wanted, there was very little that could stop her from getting it. With her music, she pushed and experimented until it felt just right. Her fourth and final album – Pearl – showed Janis at the top of her game, working hard with a new band and new ways to use her voice.

In this four part podcast series you’ll hear about Janis’ final years and the making of Pearl from her sister and author Laura Joplin, road manager John Byrne Cooke, Pearl producer, the late Paul Rothchild and author Holly George Warren. The host is David Gans (KPFA, Grateful Dead Hour). Music includes Pearl classics from the original album, rare studio outtakes and live cuts from the era from the new Legacy Recordings release, The Pearl Sessions.
