Straight from the horse's mouth
Janis Ian | Nashville TN | 03/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, I'm biased, true - but since this is the only live concert footage available of me during the "At 17" and "Fly Too High" years, I think it's pretty cool. Shot in Japan & Australia, special effects commensurate with the 70's (ditto my outfits!) And the net proceeds go to The Pearl Foundation. What's not to like?!"
Superb heyday footage!

"This video, released in 2007, is taken from Ian's world tour of 1979. This is Janis Ian at the peak of her fame / popularity - footage from her heyday that was simply unavailable anywhere until recently. Janis covers all the favorites from those times with Columbia Records - from At Seventeen, Love is Blind (no 1 in Japan for 6 months), In the Winter, Silly Habits, to Fly too High (her disco hit)and the magnificent Here Comes the Night. If you ever went to a Janis Ian concert back then and you want to re-live those wonderful songs with a great band and the cool 70s clothes, then you simply have to have this. And if you never had that privilege, then all the more reason to buy this and see what you missed. It really is a fabulous treat and a great trip down memory lane. Everyone who ever loved a Janis Ian song should have this in their collection. And yes, the proceeds go to charity too!"
The Absolute Best!

"I was elated when this concert became available on DVD. I had seen a performance very much like it in the early 80's in Los Angeles. I had never seen Janis perform "In the Winter" quite like this, and feared that I'd never see it again. This is Janis at her very dramatic best. Her voice is perfect, and there is also a very rare performance of the Japanese only hit "You Are Love". "Silly Habits" exhibits a wonderful band showcase, and "Here Comes the Night", "Will You Dance" and "Fly Too High", Janis' first disco hit, are very memorable and flawless. I think this is a perfect concert, and everyone should own it!"
