Best of Janis Ian: The Autobiography Collection

Released in tandem with Janis Ian's autobiography, Society's Child, this best-of compilation collects all the songs mentioned in the book, as well as several rarities. Ian's first demo, a distorted lo-fi version of "Hair of Spun Gold," makes a welcome appearance, while "Ginny the Flying Girl" arrives via a 1981 Sesame Street album. Also notable are the handful of re-recorded songs on this two-disc collection, as well as several live tracks. Perhaps this isn't the definitive Janis Ian anthology for casual fans -- it's too specialized for that -- but Ian enthusiasts should make it a staple of their collections.
