an introduction to janis ian

janis ian last night in concord mass

at one point janis said that sometimes she wonders why she is not more famous, like joan baez. all i can say is thank goodness she is nothing like joan baez (you may remember i have a particular dislike for this woman based on her effing and blinding me in front of a packed hammersmith odeon). janis has a great sense of humour, and sang gentle and beautiful folkie songs plus a cool cover of 'love me do' by the beatles. this was my first exposure to any of her music except for the famous song ('at 17') and i had a very pleasant evening. i did not fall madly in love with her like my dear friend lg, but i am also in a bit of an emotional limbo right now as i come to terms with the loss of janet. i did notice that i was probably one of the youngest people there, which was utterly strange.
