ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
IMPORT!
"Ian's most commercial album in years, as witness Ruby was used in the film Street Girls; When Angels Cry, a song about AIDs, was featured on General Hospital for 6 episodes, culminating in appearance by Janis singing it at the end of the season. "Angels" was also lauded by Elton John, and all proceeds in Europe donated to the Pediatric AIDs Foundation.

Inside scoop: Janis and John Jennings hired her dream band for this album, and it shows. "This is probably the happiest, most commercial album I've ever done", says Janis. Berlin was written with Linda Perry of '4 non blondes' fame during an afternoon at Janis' house; Take Me Walking In the Rain began on vacation in Provincetown, MA, when Janis took a walk on the beach one rainy afternoon. And Tenderness was born when she and Buddy Mondlock were having lunch and discussing a breakup; Buddy said "You know, I don't need much - just a little tenderness, that's all!" and Janis began singing the chorus to him. Says Janis: "Steve Gadd on drums, Willie Weeks on bass and my most popular live tune 'Take No Prisoners' are all on this record."

Revenge
What can I say? It's Janis. She hasn't written a mediocre song since she was 14, and she's still going strong. It was a joy discovering this disc, which I hadn't been aware of.
