At Seventeen ('Hers') - Produced by Marianne Dissard
Lyrics/Music : Janis Ian
Vocals : Marianne Dissard
Upright bass, cello, SK1 : Thøger Tetens Lund
Guitars : Gabriel Naïm Amor
Flute : Terry Edwards
Mixing : Joe Mabbott, The Hideaway Studios, Minneapolis
Mastering : Steve Kitch, AudioMaster, UK

Recorded with Tucson bassist Thøger Lund (Howe Gelb) and guitarist Gabriel Naïm Amor, and English saxophonist Terry Edwards (PJ Harvey), each from their respective lockdown homes, these two versions replace the lilting Bossa-Nova rhythm of the original, taking the song back thirty years before its release date and focusing the song squarely on its lyrics with traditional French chanson-styled vocal interpretation. Joe Mabbott from Minneapolis' Hideway Studios (Rhymesayers, Bones & Beeker) mixed Dissard's production (as he had her previous albums).

The music video by Mann from an idea by Dissard juxtapose 1950s Technicolor-hued teenage girls with their TikTok-era counterparts in a heartbreaking commentary on the ongoing pressure of being 'seventeen'.

Singers of hearth and heart, Ian and Bloom on the East Coast, Dissard in France, the three women were born roughly a decade apart each (Ian 51, Bloom next, Dissard 69). Kath told Marianne recently: [when 'At Seventeen' came out], "I was really young and had not done more than "sing along" then (75) and I certainly remember Ian's music." Dissard does not. Raised on Jacques Brel and the more folk-like Georges Brassens, Dissard moved from France to Mesa, AZ at the difficult age of 16, a turn of events which certainly paved the way for a connection to Ian's tale of teenage woos over a new, baffling All-American background of beauty queens and basketball games. But which teenager, no matter the decade, hasn't "desperately remained at home, inventing lovers on the phone" and which grown-up the world over has not ever been caught "repenting other lives unknown".
