Their set was excellent. Then Joni came on stage with a long gown, and sat at her piano & played a couple of songs solo, followed by Tom S & the LA Express as her backup band.They started with "Help Me" & other songs from "Court & Spark" I was 24 at the time, but her music touched my life, & continues to touch my life. I'll be 65 in Sept., & Joni, you will always be my "True North"

Was puzzled to see some guy name Jackson Browne with her...and was instantly converted. Her sets were classy. I suppose most of all I remember the blue light on her and the piano as she sang "Blue" and of course the encore when Browne joined her. I've been to many concerts...and in fact saw her in Philly in 1983 and in Camden NJ in 2000. She is an icon.

I knew the words to every song. I remember a man in the audience shouted out "Joni, you have more class in your little finger than most people have in their whole body!" She was incredible and I love her so much! [ed.]

It was great to see Jackson Browne too. We were prepubescent tenors together in the Burbank Jr Hi (Highland Park, Los Angeles) Junior Choir, and I helped teach him how to sing harmony. I have been a professional opera singer for 32 years, last 20 in Europe.

I remember she use to song called " STORY OF TWO HOUSES " which if i am not mistaken became , Rainy Night and Blue Boy. At the time i was a very young and had seen she alot on the east coast. I saw her many times , I use to listen to Gene Shay Folk show. Gene would give out the dates , and i would go to where ever she played ( NYC , Boston, D.C. The Philly Folk Fest and A.C. music fest. ( In Fact, I was the guy that tried to tell her, her monitor speaker and sound system was not loud enough for everyone to hear her and she , made a comment ' "If you don't tell that guy there (pointing at me) to stop yell whatever he is trying to say , I AM WALKING OFF" and She walked off.) THAT WAS NOT A BRIGHT SPOT IN MY LIFE TRUST ME. What a wonderful show the Academy of Music Show was. I am not sure what happened to the pictures i had of the show , i think the friend i went with had them .
