Reviews

  1. The Second Disc
    The Pearl Sessions expands the original 10-track album produced by Paul Rothchild (The Doors) with a whopping 25 bonus tracks, nine of which are unreleased. This should be the most illuminating look yet at the seminal recording by Joplin and the Full Tilt Boogie Band. The original LP, on Disc One, is augmented by the six mono single mixes of Me and Bobby McGee, Half Moon, Cry Baby, Get It While You Can, Move Over and A Woman Left Lonely. Disc Two, then, is dedicated to the albums recording sessions. This fly-on-the-wall look takes in studio chatter, demos and alternate takes over its 19 selections, including three stabs at Get It While You Can and Move Over, two of My Baby, and alternates of Me and Bobby McGee, Cry Baby and A Woman Left Lonely. A live performance of Tell Mama, recorded in Toronto on June 28, 1970, rounds out the set.
