Editorial Reviews

2011 three disc (two CDs + PAL/Region 0 DVD) collection from the singer/songwriter. Best known for her signature song 'At Seventeen', which was released in 1975, Janis won a Grammy Award for the single, which sold over two million singles in the United States alone, upon release. Later in the decade she was selected to sing the main theme tune for the Jodie Foster film 'Foxes'. 'Fly Too High', which was produced by electro disco genius Giorgio Moroder, gave Janis her first UK hit in November 1979 and became an international hit. The record went to #30 in the Billboard Hot Dance/Disco Chart. Also included in this package is a twelve-track DVD filmed during her peak period in 1979 in Japan and Australia. Edsel Records.

Best of Janis Ian: The Autobiography Collection
Not sure why Amazon are listing this item twice, once as available and once as not - but it's my own two disk set, and it's definitely available. Try to find the correct one, and sorry for the hassle!

This Item "IS" in Stock! If you have any problems getting this from Amazon or if Amazon can't fill the order, then you can always go to [...] to buy it, along with the book. A message from "Janis Ian". Thank you!

Coinciding with the release of her autobiography, the artist has released a sumptuous, 30-song, two-CD retrospective from her 40-year career. Those unfamiliar with her will be surprised with her range of musical styles, while those familiar will be thrilled with her classic hits referenced in the book, as well as work tapes, never-before-released songs, and ones long out of print

Contrary to the insistence of the Amazon site, this item is indeed very much available and in stock. The artist wishes it to be known that the CD set can also be ordered from [...]

Every musician with a few recordings under his and her belt eventually puts out an anthology and/or a live album. The usual result is a "Greatest Hits" collection, a sort of Reader's Digest condensed career for those who don't like the singer enough to build a collection of recordings. A recent trend, largely created by the releasers of CDs who want to convince us oldsters to let go of our vinyl, has been the inclusion of an "unreleased" track or two--commonly live performances and not always unreleased in the strictest sense.

Janis Ian never does anything in quite the same way as everybody else. She's made a fine career of it, and so, it should not be surprising that, with her Autobiography in print and a CD set created to accompany it, the latter should be somewhat iconoclastic. First and foremost this is NOT a "Greatest Hits" collection. You'll find here many of the Janis Ian songs that have been played on the radio (some of them gloriously remastered from original masters for the first time), but you'll also find a previously unreleased worktape of Janis' first song, a number of powerful songs that Clear Channel Radio will never be ready for, and new recordings of several songs that will be familiar to Ian's fans but revisited via different (sometimes significantly so) arrangements. And yes, there are several live tracks and for good measure, one brand new recording of a traditional folk song ("Johnny, We Hardly Knew Ye") which has never before appeared on a Janis Ian disk.
