When 16 year old Janis Ian recorded the controversial hit Society's Child (Baby I've Been Thinking)
in 1967, few expected the subsequent eight year lull before the release of the platinum album Between the Lines
. It featured the Grammy Award-winning single at At Seventeen
plus the famed Watercolours
and earned over 5 million dollars. Janis retired. Since that time, a chequered career has seen her writing for artists such as Roberta Flack and Joan Baez and developing a following amongst folk enthusiasts for her hard-hitting and forthright treatment of subjects such as wife-battering, eroticism and sixties nostalgia.
