Classic Track Of Day – Janis Ian

HappyParts posted a video from an old TV show for this tune a while back. I was able to record direct from LP here- as it sounds amazing. Janis wrote this tune at the bright young age of 15. The recording was paid for by Atlantic Records- but they balked at releasing it, as the content was ‘too risque’ at the time.  Go figure- Verve Forecast released it.  In the summer of 1967, “Society’s Child” reached #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. Wall of Sound (baroque pop), ethereal, classic. Dig in.
