However, it is undoubtedly the otherwise unavailable "This Night" -- which briefly reunited Ian with Stars and Between the Lines producer Brooks Arthur -- that makes My Favourites such an indispensable set. As Ian was catering to a specific market, her choices may be a reflection of Monkey Mafia - 15 Steps EP songs that were hits and favorite deep cuts of the European audiences.
The mesmerizing title composition "Stars" -- from the long player of the same name -- begins the sojourn of offering Ian 's at time uncomfortably intimate illuminations in a fresh context. She relates alternate senses of liberation.
On the one hand there is the adamant urgency of "From Me to You" and "Let Me Be Lonely," which is starkly contrasted by the disparity and haunting visions imbued within the post-Vietnam experienced "Jesse," or the almost disturbing minor chord progressions on "In the Winter" as they evoke palpable feelings of impending isolation.
Of course no accurate assessment would be possible without "At Seventeen" -- which was not only Ian 's biggest hit Stateside, but it garnered her a spot during the October 11, debut episode of Jesse - Janis Ian - My Favourites Saturday Night -- a revolutionary variety program featuring comedy and live music.
There are numerous nuggets from several of the often overlooked mid- to late '70s. The scintillating "Silly Habits" is a refined and romantic torch-fueled ballad highlighting Ian 's far-too-underutilized skills on piano. As the artist has been reassessing her catalog, she began offering the same contents as Up 'Til Now on her own Rude Girl Records label. More information can be found on Ian 's website at www.
