10 times Grammy nominated Janis Ian is a songwriter's songwriter, an exceptional artist who, from the age of 12, has penned a library of songs that have stretched across a hugely impressive 52 years and over major label 15 albums. Artists who have recorded her songs include Nina Simone, Roberta Flack Glen Campbell and Celine Dion.

No collection would be complete without the inclusion of Ian's 'At Seventeen', a song of such timeless quality that it stays with you for life. Its enduring popularity has seen it appear in several films, most recently in Absolutely Fabulous The Movie where the song's appearance charmed a new generation of admirers.

Additional album pick outs include: 'Jesse' which Roberta Flack turned into a classic with her 1973 hit version; the Dolly Parton duet 'My Tennessee Hills'; 'Don't Leave Tonight', a duet with Dutch singer Conny Vandenbos, which has never been released worldwide before; a wonderful Willie Nelson duet 'Memphis'; 'Danger Danger' from the critically acclaimed 2006 album 'Folk Is The New Black'; 'Stars', 'Tattoo' and 'Hair Of Spun Gold', the first song Janis wrote at the tender age of 12 which appeared on her stunning debut album for the Verve label in 1967.

A first on any Janis Ian album is the appearance of the 12" Extended Mix of 'Fly Too High' and it's an absolute treat. With the great Giorgio Moroder at the controls and a crystalline vocal from Janis, it glides effortlessly into pure disco heaven and is a real kudos addition to the collection.

Janis Ian: The Essential 2.0, a new 2CD collection, brings together for the very first time, some of her greatest works from across the Columbia, Verve, and Rude Girl labels.
