Will never forget that night. A vanload of people traveled to Cornell from Cortland, where some friends & my brother were attending school. We drove for what seemed to be days, in a massive snowstorm. I was MADLY in love with a girl I grew up with, but more in love with Joni. I was so sad she hadn't played "Blonde in the Bleachers"... it was her encore, I was in my glory. That girl & I married, did not last, but the memory always will. Still considered the best show I've EVER seen...thank you Joni.

I was a junior at Cornell and a bunch of us went. As it was general admission, we got there well early so we could get a good seat, center stage 5th row. To mimic what Alex said in A Clockwork Orange, "Oh bliss! Bliss and heaven! Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh." She opened with Tom Scott and the LA Express with a lot of the Court & Spark music. The best part was the middle concert when she came out alone with her dulcimer and sang California, A Case of You, Carey and All I Want. Then she moved to the acoustic grand piano and sang My Old Man, Blue and The Last Time I saw Richard. Her voice was crystal clear and very emotive like she was singing for you personally. Unbelievable concert!

It was my first year in college, and I travelled from Binghamton to Cornell to see Joni's concert. She was in a small-ish room, with a piano and roses. What an intimate magical concert; after all these years and all the concerts I've seen it's one of the 5 best concerts of my life.
