We are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Janis Joplin’s iconic record, Pearl, the artist’s final studio album. Originally released on January 11, 1971.
Peaking at #1 on the Billboard 200, a position it held for nine weeks, Pearl showcased some of Janis’s most familiar and best-loved performances including hits like “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Mercedes Benz,” the last song she ever recorded.
In celebration of the anniversary, Vinyl Me, Please, the “best damn record club out there,” in association with Columbia/Legacy, will be releasing a collectible 50th anniversary limited edition of Pearl pressed on white “Pearl” Color 180 Gram Vinyl.
