Barbra joined about 200 people at the home of a Universal Studios Executive; Jennings Lang, for an ACLU benefit evening to raise money for the defense of Daniel Ellsberg. She agreed to take requests from those in attendance as well as from the telephone for $1,000 per song. A total of almost $60,000 was raised that evening.
David Geffen, who is in the audience, requests the song I Don't Know Where I Stand. When Barbra realizes that Joni Mitchell is in the audience as well she says, "I love your music and I also love the way you sing..."
Marvin Hamlisch is on piano. Barbra discovers Joni is in the audience starting at 02:56.
