My sister and her boyfriend (now husband)took me to this concert. I was not very familiar with Joni's materials so I can't give a complete account of what she played. I do know she introduced (to us) a new song that she described as a "country western" song. This was "For Free". The detail oriented of you know that, at this moment, the line was "I've got a black limousine and two white men escorting me to the hall". It can be heard this way on the Cavett show from later in the summer. Obviously it was changed for "Ladies of the Canyon", at Geffen"s (and Mazer?) suggestion. I wouldn't mind revisiting that concert now.

I do recall Tim Hardin was not at his best. He played a D-45 and sang "Reason to Believe" both during his set and as an encore. At 14, even I knew that wasn't the way it should be.  [ed.]

I was 14 years old and it was my first concert! My teen camp took us. She walked out on to the stage in a green velvet gown and I was awestruck. When she sang I couldn't believe that a person could sing, play guitar and write so beautifully. That was the beginning of my love for Joni. Get well soon Joni!
