5.0 out of 5 stars One and a Half Wonderful Albums 17 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Terrific value for one brilliant and one very good album. The days of Society's Child long over, Janis Ian came back with a bang with Stars, and the wonderful, and much covered, Jesse. Aftertones was recorded in a bit of a rush, and the songs are't quite up to the standard of its predecessor, but the quality still shines through. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two excellent albums 2 Jun 2014
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These were the first and third albums that Janis Ian recorded for Columbia, having previously recorded three albums for Verve and one for Capitol. It is slightly irritating to ne that Edsel chose to combine her albums this way, and to re-issue her second album (the very successful Between the lines, featuring At seventeen) with a companion DVD.

Judging the albums on their own merits, the first album here (Stars) features Jesse (an American top 30 hit for Roberta Flack), while the other album (Aftertones) features Love is blind, which became a #1 hit in Japan. There is a lot of great music within these two albums, although Janis herself is not keen on Aftertones. Singers aren't always the best judge of their own music, and the Japanese public clearly love the album.

Despite my irritation at Edsel's release policy, I have no hesitation in awarding this pairing 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good package. 25 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For me Janis Ian's early work is her best. All of my existing recordings are on vinyl, so it's good to to be able to acquire her work on CD for convenience. The price is good and the production and content are first class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful CD 4 Nov 2010

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All the songs I enjoyed 25 years ago, and I still find them as relevant and poignant today as I did then.
5.0 out of 5 stars Such a talented artist! 18 Jun 2014

I had owned "Stars" as an LP and wanted to hear it again. I had not heard "Aftertones" but it was true to her style and I enjoyed it as well. Janis's songs always cause me to reflect upon life's experiences.

Stars/Aftertones by Janis Ian
In years past I have grown to be a fan of Ms. Ian's music and talent. Lately I've updated my collection to include her most recent offerings. They are far better than her earlier albums. These two, Stars and Aftertones are in line with her Between the Lines in style and quality. Her newer CDs "Breaking Silence" (1993) and "Revenge" (1995)are in my opinion her most enjoyable music. Love them all, though.
