Movie Reviews

"Live Janis" Stunning and Captivating as Always!
Kathleen A. Brogan | San Diego, CA | 01/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To truly appreciate the power & substance of Janis Ian, one really does have to see her live! I saw Janis on television before hearing most of her music and it had a tremendous impact on my life! I have seen Janis in concert more times than I can count from 1974 to up until last June, the same week that this DVD was filmed. She still provides a stellar, brilliant performance. "Dead Men Walking" and "When I Lay Down" are two of the features from Janis' latest, wonderful work, "Billie's Bones" and there are also enough '70's favorites like "At Seventeen" and "Watercolors", for those more familiar with Janis when she wasn't quite as accessible as she is at this more intimate venue. The stories before the songs are profound, true Janis at her very best. Her humor is an added plus. And, if you weren't already aware, Janis Ian is also a stunning guitar player and really seems to have fun while she displays some awesome, spellbinding solos. The bonus pictorial feature with "Through the Years" and "Stars" brought tears to my eyes! I would have paid the full price of this DVD just to own that! Buy this DVD, and I guarantee, you won't be dissapointed!"
Must have
Redjack Ryan | Pittsburgh | 01/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you can only own a single Janis Ian product, this is the one. This powerful live performance was shot in an intimate cafe setting in Pittsburgh's Southside. Janis is both intimate and commanding throughout the show as she works her way through back catalog and newer material. The DVD has quite a few extras as well, including a two part interview with Ms. Ian that alone is worth the cost of the DVD.

The DVD includes what i consider to be the definitive version of 'Take No Prisoners' as well as the haunting and touching 'I hear you sing again' . A must have for fans of Ms. Ian."
A Gracious Star Continues to Shine
Mark | Warner, NH USA | 01/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Those in the know have followed Janis Ian for years and have celebrated her "quiet" return for more than 10 years now. This DVD shows why she won't, can't, and shouldn't ever go away. Janis' musicianship and performing style have always exhibited the utmost in grace, humor, and wisdom, all of which shine through in this recording. If you've liked Janis' music before, you'll love the intimacy and clarity of this DVD. If you haven't discovered her, this DVD will make you a fan."
Darlene Vendegna | Oakland, CA United States | 01/28/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a friend of mine, to whom I lent the DVD, said, "I had no idea she was such a spectacular guitarist, and she's very funny too." Any one who is even remotely familiar with Janis Ian should own this DVD, she is SO much more than the young girl who gave us "At Seventeen" and "Society's Child". If you've never seen her live, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. The visual and audio quality (did I mention 5.1 surround sound?)is remarkable. You will feel like you are there. There is a two part, one on one interview that is fascinating and a slide show of her life that is truly moving. If you have no idea who Janis Ian is, but you appreciate compelling lyrics and guitar mastery, check and see where Ani Difranco, Norah Jones, Melissa Ehteridge, Dar Williams, and countless other women performers got much of their inspiration."
