ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Working Without a Net" is a double CD!! 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". 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.

Almost as good as being there
I'd love to be able to get to one of Janis Ian's concerts, but this is a pretty nice substitute. Great music with interesting comments from the artist.

If you love live music, you'll love this!
Amazing - all recorded live to tape, no overdubs, no mixing, just Janis (with band @ half the time). Even if you don't know her music, this album is worth getting just so you can hear how live music should really sound - in tune, energetic, great lyrics and players!!
