Release date TBA. Janis 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 “Society¹s Child.” A dozen or so labels rejected the Shadow Morton-produced recording about interracial romance before it found release on Verve Folkways. A radio station in Atlanta was burned to the ground for playing it, and Janis received deaththreats for writing it.
Recorded with some of New York¹s 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, a Billboard Pop #29 hit album, has miraculously never been issued in Europe on CD. Until NOW!
