Rewind: 1971 - Janis Joplin hits #1

On this day in musical history back in 1971, five months after her death, Janis Joplin started a nine-week run at No.1 on the US album chart with 'Pearl.' The album was released on 11th January and was the only album that her touring band at the time, The Full Tilt Boogie Band, appeared on. The original release contained ten tracks, nine of which Janis sang on, 'Buried Alive in the Blues' is an instrumental that Joplin never got around to adding vocals to due to her untimely death.
