Album Notes
Janis Ian had her first hit with the self-penned Society's Child, a song about an interracial teenage romance, at the age of 14. The song was immensely controversial, with radio stations being burned down and people being fired for playing it. Three years of constant touring and recording followed, after which she left the music business to concentrate on writing. She returned with the album "Between the Lines", winner of two Grammy awards and featuring At Seventeen. Over the next decade, she had multi-platinum records throughout Europe, Australia, North America, and Japan, where she was #1 on the charts for six months. Ian currently resides in Nashville with her domestic partner of 15 years, writing songs for other artists (Bette Midler, John Mellencamp, Joan Baez among others) and making her own albums. Ian has been a firm supporter of online downloading for years, and considers the Internet "the last free space". Her newest studio album, Billie's Bones, features a duet with Dolly Parton. You can read more about Janis Ian on her website, www.janisian.com, which currently features "The Making of a CD", a real time audio and textual walk-through of the making of this album. "MOCD" includes drafts of song lyrics from beginning to finish, and audio of songs from their first "worktape" incarnation through the final mix.

A treasure
Brilliant. Artistry in sound and substance. Subtly profound, sensitive, thoughtful and thought-provoking.

Steve Popovich

A homerun!
pleasant melodic guitar, soft relaxing voice, thoughtful penetrating words
