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.

On April 17, Janis Joplin‘s posthumous album Pearl will be re-released as The Pearl Sessions, a deluxe package featuring unreleased studio takes and demos, live tracks and mono mixes of the record’s singles.

In this one hour radio special 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 Paul Rothchild and author Holly George Warren.
