Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1967 release from the singer/songwriter, appearing on CD for the first time in it's entirety. Ian captured the frustrations, awkwardness, and inner turmoil of teenaged existence with a clarity and maturity well beyond her tender age. Recorded when she was just 15 years old, Janis Ian was released in 1967 with the controversial Top 20 hit single 'Society's Child.' Recorded with some of New York's finest session musicians, including Artie Butler on harpsichord, piano, and organ, Vinnie Bell and Al Gorgoni on guitars, Joe Mack on bass, and Buddy Saltzman on drums, Janis Ian hit the Billboard charts at #29. The full-color, 16-page booklet also includes previously unpublished photos and exhaustive liner notes that feature the participation of Janis and others. Now Sounds. 2009.

To search for someone who has an innate ability to create life in song one has only to discover Janis Ian. There are very few others in the artistic world of music and sound that can compare with this Master of the scientific realm of the alphabetical and numerical entities. For afterall it is the magical formulation of these two sciences which gives us that auditory pleasure which we seek in order to express as an emotional outlet what we feel on a daily basis. We seek music to deal with ANY or ALL of the emotions we are feeling in relation to that particular experience with which we happen to be dealing with. Dolly Parton and Dottie Rambo are other Masters with this inherent God given ability. A day of my life does not pass by that these Artistic Musical Goddesses do not in some way influence the course in which my life takes from day to day. If I need a laugh, a cry, to relax, to make a decision, to visit and experience a past memory, to feel a love again, or to reminisce about a friend, Janis Ian is as far away as my CD music shelf. Ever since I can remember as from my childhood to now in the prime of my life, what Janis has created, in that I have related. She is one of those rare priceless jewels of which only one will ever exist. Whatever your emotion or present situation, Janis has a description of it in a song. She is a very down to earth person which is why she can relate to the common folk. Her music can be your best friend.

I had worn out my LP, and was very pleased to get the CD. I have always been amazed at what Janis had accomplished with this album at such a young age. Her talent just exploded. The CD brings back many memories of those confusing times in our lives. Her songs were raw, powerful, and so expressive. To me they remain so today.

...raw, emotional, heartfelt, polished, legendary and essential...all while 15 years old! At times it's a folk album and at other times it's an avant-garde pop jazz album. Liner notes and photos are awesome. This is HERSTORY.

Early Janis Ian offering. From 1967 when she was a teenager. Recording quality is what the industry did with new artists. More Recent recordings are far superior. I have most of her music and I am a diehard fan. She is as talented as any Singer Songwriter with a wonderful voice. Janis plays guitar and piano as well as any composer/performer. Super Artist.

If you are an Ian fan, this should be in you collection. The songs however don't quite match the emotional and musical depths as her earlier works.

Haven't received this CD yet, but I used to have this in vinyl. Love the soft voice and insight of this poet-singer.
