My future wife and I had just met a couple of months previous to this show and neither of us had seen Joni live. We drove across the Bay in a van packed with friends and took seats (not especially good ones) and proceeded to lift off for the duration of the show, levitated by the unbelievably perfect sounds emanating from the stage. Joni's inimitable sounds and poetry supported by the best band anywhere- Jaco, Michael Brecker, Metheny and Mays, and the Persuasions topping it all off. I don't ever remember having the chills for so long in response to live music on any other occasion... Catherine and I still remember the concert as one of the high points of our musical past.

My "GO!GO! GO GO G-GO! GO!" Kerouac moment was recorded by the mic at the back of the auditorium on Why Do Fools Fall In Love and made it to the final cut, and I know so because you can hear Gail's cackle in the end of it. It was tremendous fun, we were very high and Gail McGowan, Peggy Rice and Steve Walstead were all there. Fantastic show. Could not see the stage well so went up above. Sang along on Shadows and Light in harmony, which you can make out if you know what to listen for, as I switched from a falsetto to basso. Loved DreamLand more than anything else -- it's one of my top 3 favorites of hers and so excitingly and uniquely sexual with reversed roles and anywayzzzz... waited at back door and saw her sheepdog in the limo but she took forever to come out and we had to go, so I missed seeing her up close. Don't recall if it was this night or the next tho. Wanted to see both shows but couldn't get tix.  [ed.]
