The Pearl Sessions pulls together alternate takes and unreleased tracks

AnitMusic reports that a new 40th Anniversary edition of Pearl will be released in April, and that the album will be packaged with a bonus CD of newly discovered tracks.

When putting together material for a 40th anniversary edition of Pearl, researchers discovered a treasure-trove of previously uncatalogued audio tapes from the album's sessions, produced by Paul Rothschild.

The Pearl Sessions brings together the original mono versions of the album's 45s alongside the original LP tracks as well as the newly-discovered alternate versions, outtakes and vocal takes of Pearl's classic tracks.

The album includes newly discovered recordings of Janis in the studio, joking with producer Paul Rothchild and her Full Tilt Boogie bandmates as they work through what would become an essential part of Janis Joplin's core catalog.

Disc One of The Pearl Sessions includes the original album as well as the original mono singles from the album ("Cry Baby," "Get It While You Can," "Me and Bobby McGee").

Disc Two is a collection of behind-the-scenes recordings illuminating the Pearl sessions with highlights and insights revealed in candid studio dialogue, song demos and alternate takes including nine previously unissued tracks.
