Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‚ÄėDirect Ship‚Äô option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Remastered from original masters and pressed at RTI, this 50th edition of Pearl makes clear what everyone knew in 1971: there were few singers better than Janis Joplin. Her take of "Me and Bobby McGee?" It's here in all its glory, still one of the most operatically devastating vocal takes recorded by an ostensible rock singer. She'd tragically die before this album became a monster smash, but it does a good job as any at presenting Joplin in all her glory.
