I had just moved to Austin with some friends. I was 18. I didn't have a ticket or money to buy one, for that matter but was determined to find a way in. I remember standing outside at the very end of the hall, watching through the glass doors when someone handed me a ticket. Standing close to the stage, I recall the buzz that Dylan had arrived - everyone started cramming the stage. We were all stoned. It was a moment of dreams - one of the rarest jewels in my life - magical... Happy Birthday, Joni. Your music has defined my soul for more than forty years.  [ed.]

I was a sophomore at UT and a huge Joni fan (still am). I loved her performance, but, strangely enough, the thing that stands out for me the most is her making the comment "This is the millingest crowd I've ever played for" (or something along those lines except I distinctly remember her using the term "millingest" as in milling about excessively). It embarrassed me, and I remember feeling like we Austinites had let her down. Weird that I would remember that, and that I would have been so affected by it...

It was a phenomenal show. Joni was magnificent as expected and then Dylan showed up, totally unexpected. It was glorious. I was a hippie/cowboy/singer/songwriter on the Austin 'scene' and ended up backstage following the concert. I briefly met Dylan, and Joni and kissed her on the cheek (her left, I will never forget it). It was a wonderful concert and I 'met' the two most talented singer/songwriters of our time... incredible.

This was a great show. Joni was in great spirits and fine voice, and played superbly throughout, and Bob's impromptu sitting in was good, loose, unrehearsed fun.
