ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Janis Ian\'s long-awaited autobiography, released by Tarcher/Penguin on July 24, 2008, is centered around her life as a songwriter and performer. Covering everything from doing coke with Jimi Hendrix to her nine Grammy nominations, Ian titles each chapter with a song, and a quote from that song. Other works are woven throughout the book.

This two-CD set is the first time fans can buy all the hits in one place - \"Society\'s Child, \"Jesse,\" \"At 17,\" \"Stars,\" \"Love Is Blind\". Also, thanks to a few good souls, Janis is able to offer some hard to find tracks like \"Ginny the Flying Girl,\" a Sesame Street Grammy nominee that\'s been out of print since 1983!

You can read more than you ever wanted to know about both Janis and these projects at www.janisian.com

Thanks for looking!
