Album Notes
The basics: Produced by Ron Frangipane, Leanne Unger, & Janis Ian; recorded late 1976 at The Hit Factory, New York, released January 1977 (Columbia). "Will You Dance"? was the # 1 single in Japan for three full months; the album went platinum in Japan.

Inside scoop: Janis was spending a lot of her off-time in Spanish Harlem, where her mother lived; she hoped to reflect those influences on this album. She used her live band instead of studio musicians for the recordings, unaware that a lot of cocaine usage was making tempers fray and playing erratic. "Party Lights" was written when she attended a party and found band members hiding in a closet, snorting cocaine they didn't want to share. "Maria", a love song to a woman, was "scary to record, especially then! but so few people picked up on it that it wasn't an issue - which just goes to show you how little most folks listen to lyrics".

One of the best albums she ever recorded.
I first heard this music when it was orginally released. Song for song, it remains one of the best albums in the era for that jonra. Take to the sky still speaks loudly about life and love, it remains relevant thiry years later.

Great album
One of my favorite albums right when I had gotten out of college, and it still holds up. "Take to the Sky" is truly inspirational, and there's not a bad track on it. If there's any coke-induced erraticism, I don't notice it; the band sounds pretty awesome to me. Or maybe that coke worked! I connect with Janis much more than the much-better-known Joni Mitchell; too bad she's so relatively obscure. I think maybe her songwriting is too searingly honest for most people.
