I listened to her performing the song in 1969 and then with this video in 2000 and wow, I also was taken by Joni early in my life with her lyrics and music. But this performance here was breath taking, as pcarlo164 said thanks for the memories, your music will live with me for the rest of my life and even at my end. Thanks from a person who is not very good with words. I wish I could say more.

I got my Ladies album 1972? I never had the album with this song on it, this rendition was so haunting and beautiful, you are such a talent, thank you for the many wonderful memories that you have given me!
