I heard this album in 1980 thanks to a music teacher at secondary school. I immediately rushed out and bought it on vinyl and its been in my collection ever since. Janis Ian sounds unique and this album combines elements of folk, gospel and pop to produce an album which is musically inspiring and emotionally intelligent. From sparse piano based ballads to sweeping orchestrations, her talents are showcased beautifully. For me the title track Night Rains is a perfect example of the (still) fresh slant on old topics and I never get tired of hearing it. I don't think Ms Ian has ever really enjoyed the exposure she deserves possibly due to her stance on certain issues, but supremely talented she most certainly is, and she is definately one of my music heroes.

Yet again Janis Ian has outdone herself with the poetic lyrics on this album.The joyfull , almost childlike tones of "On the other side of the Sun " and "Fly too High"leave you feeling warm and uplifted , whilst the power of "Photographs " and "Memories " leaves the listner emotionaly exausted. The track "Have mercy Love " takes us to a place we have all been in our lives and expresses the emotions felt then with sheer beauty. "Here Comes the Night" describes the hours of darkness with such poinency that the listner waits with dread for the night to arrive. All in all this is another "Must Have " album for Janis Ian fans.Right up there with "Between the Lines".

This was something else my wife wanted. She had an LP by Janis Rains in the eighties and wanted a CD by her so I bought this. Well worth the money for the peace and quiet.
