I latched on to Janis Ian early in life. Of course I came in on At Seventeen when I was right around the age of 16. I checked back catalog at the library and found Society's Child. I saw clips of the video on some music shows. It wasn't as easy in the 80's to hear new music as it is now. Search YouTube versus search Record Stores and Libraries.
I dated inter-racially in high school and there were people none too happy about it. That sucks. I hate racism.
I also came to Janis Ian through Joan Baez's version of Jesse. What a beautiful song. Janis's is every bit as good.
This woman is a legendary singer-songwriter and deserves many accolades.
