Rochmon Record Club Listening Party Janis Joplin – “Pearl”
February 17 at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
The Rochmon Record Club will converge to listen, learn about Janis Joplin’s final studio album, “Pearl.”
“Pearl” was Joplin’s creative peak. Produced by Paul Rothchild and featuring a band of seasoned road and studio musicians all the songs on “Pearl” were chosen by and arranged by Janis. “Pearl” features one of my favorite Joplin songs, “Move Over” as well as “Cry Baby” and Joplin’s biggest single, “Me and Bobby McGee”. Janis died 16 days after Jimi in October 1970 and 3 months before the release of her masterpiece, “Pearl”. We’ll listen to “Pearl” on The Linda’s state-of-the-art sound system. A Rochmon Record Club Listening Party is meant to inform and deepen our understanding of the history of the individual performers, the songs and stories that went into the making this iconic album. By listening together, we hear the album again for the first time.
