Janis Joplin and the Full Tilt Boogie Band/Pearl (Columbia)

I hesitate to call this one her "best" because I like all of the others so much. But certainly rocks the best. The Full Tilt Band is dynamite and fits next to her voice perfectly. Paul Rothchild receives production credit here and the old Doors producer did a good job. "Me and Bobby McGee" finally shows how sweetly she could sing if she wanted to. It makes me want to cry every time I hear it on the radio. Boogie on.
