Super Hot Stamper

Janis Joplin
Pearl

  (Item #: joplipearl_1711) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • Two strong sides each rating a Double Plus (A++) or better and on relatively quiet vinyl too - a big step up over most of the copies we played
  • Richer, clearer and more tonally correct, with more energy and presence, all qualities that help to bring this music to life
  • Janis's vocals sound right here - smooth enough to let you crank this one up good and loud without the sound getting hard and edgy
  • 5 stars: "Janis Joplin's second masterpiece (after Cheap Thrills), Pearl was designed as a showcase for her powerhouse vocals, stripping down the arrangements that had often previously cluttered her music or threatened to drown her out."

Big Brother & The Holding Company - Cheap Thrills

Our Shootout Winner from 2015

  (Item #: bigbrcheap_2015) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

We’ve rarely been able to get this shootout off the ground, but we finally managed to stumble upon enough clean copies to get this round going. It's been well over two years since we've had any copy of this album on the site!

This album has got that trippy '60s San Francisco sound, no doubt about it. Those of you who are familiar with Jefferson Airplane's Surrealistic Pillow or the early Grateful Dead albums know what I'm talking about. The tubey magic of the guitars is worth the price of admission alone; you just don't hear this kind of sound on modern records.

Janis Joplin - I Got Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues Again Mama!

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: jopliigotd_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Columbia 360 Label White Hot Stamper pressing is THE CURE for Dem Ol’ Kozmic Blues! This side one takes the album to places only hinted at on the other copies we played. Drop the needle on the great song Try and just listen to how crisp, punchy, and BIG the drums sound. When Janis starts singing, watch out -- her voice positively JUMPS out of the speakers, something we didn’t experience on many other copies. The bottom end has real weight and the top end is silky and extended. The overall sound is richer, fuller, and smoother than any side one we’ve ever played.

What to Listen For

  (Item #: jopliigotd_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on what you should be listening for when critically evaluating your copy (or ours) of the album.

ENERGY is the key element missing from the average copy, but not on this bad boy (or girl if you prefer). The electric guitars are super Tubey Magical and the bass is solid and punchy.

On many copies -- too many copies -- the vocals are pinched and edgy. Here they're breathy and full -- a much better way for Janis to sound. There's a slight amount of grit to the vocals at times and the brass as well, but the life force on these sides is so strong that we much preferred it to the smoother, duller, deader copies we heard that didn't have that issue.

  (Item #: joplipearl_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

TWO EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD SIDES make this the best sounding copy of Pearl to ever hit the site! Folks, if you're a fan of this album this is THE copy to own, with an A+++ side one and a side two that was amazing enough to make us break out the rare A++++ grade. All of the elements are clearly on display here, giving you everything you ever wanted from Janis and then some!
