The Basics: Produced by Jerry Corbett; recorded in Berkley, CA, summer 1970; released February 1971 (Capitol).

The Inside Scoop: Janis still wasn't sure if she'd earned the right to call herself a songwriter, so she began experimenting with the form. She also wasn't sure it was time to record, but felt she wouldn't move on as a writer if she didn't. So she changed coasts, lived in Marin County for a while, and began work. This album is the result; completely different from anything she'd done before, and heavily influenced by Charlie Daniels and John McFee, who played on it.

This long out-of-print CD is a transitional work, the bridge from Janis' youthful recordings and "Society's Child" to her mature Stars album and "Jesse".
