All Those Promises (Janis Ian)

Janis Ian has always been a gifted singer-songwriter.  But on the song above, from FOLK IS THE NEW BLACK, she achieved something so wonderful that even her biggest fans should have been in awe.  Mike is on record with this being his favorite Janis Ian song and one of his favorite songs of all time.  For good reason, like one of the all time great singers (which is what Janis has become), she manages to kill with softness.  If you ever have the chance to see Janis live, don't pass it up.  She gives incredible concerts.
