Synopsis

Product Description
"Restless Eyes" is a surprise fan favorite. In 1981 Mare Winningham starred in a tv movie called "Freedom". Janis wrote 6 pieces for that movie and most of the soundtrack. "Dear Billy", and "Sugar Mountain" were covered by Mare, and are on this album. There is a country & western flavor to this recording, but there's also some salsa in "Under the Covers", some serious jazz scat "I Believe I'm Myself Again", hard core rock and roll "Get Ready to Roll" and the haunting title track, one of the best love songs that Janis Ian has ever written. One of the most clever songs I've ever heard is "Passion Play". If you were impressed by the better selling Ian works, "Between the Lines" and "Stars", I think you'll enjoy "Restless Eyes". It may not be Janis' favorite, but's it's certainly one of mine! - Kathleen Brogan

CD Reviews

Sexy and down home
Nanci | Tri-Cities, WA USA | 03/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album includes folk tunes that border on country. Again proving music, and Janis Ian music in particular, doesn't stick to linear categories. "Under the Covers" is a fun, erotic tune that almost was banned. "Down and Away" is haunting and unlike anything else I've heard. She writes of her not very pleasant stay in L.A. in "Bigger than Real" which she now says is a place where everyone walks around trying to find someone famous and the ultimate question is "Are you somebody?" If the title track was true in 1981, it most certainly is timely today. She looks so young, and yet had at this point had 15 years in the business.I enjoyed this album immensely.It ranks among my favorite Janis Ian CDs."
"Under the Covers" for the "Freedom" Movie.
