Janis Joplin left this world all too soon 49 years ago today (October 4), but even after her untimely passing, she left her fans one final gift with the album Pearl.

Pearl was released about three months after Joplin’s death and would top the Billboard 200 album charts for nine weeks and go on to be certified four-times platinum.

Pearl, of course, isn’t the only album to be released after an artist’s death.  In honor of her wonderful life, here are nine posthumously released albums everyone should own.
