Tom Jans mania

Sounds
11th June 1977

Last week in a rave review of Tom Jans' new album , Pete Makowski wondered idly about Mr Jans' past. Neither he nor the usually knowable Elly at CBS knew anything. But now we (or rather Pete Silverton) can reveal all - or at least a tiny bit of it. Jans started out his career in the mid-sixties with Mimi Farina, younger sister of Joan Baez. After the tragic death in a motorbike accident of her talented husband, Richard, singer and author of "Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up", she teamed up with Jans in a singing partnership. They only stayed together for 18 months or so, recording an album for A&M before going their separate ways. After that the story of Jans disappears into the mist yet again.
