was both fabulous and underappreciated.. Probably known best for other people's renditions of her songs, like "Eli's Coming", by Three Dog Night, "And When I Die" by Blood Sweat and Tears, etc.

She hadn’t done a concert in years. This was an incredibly rare and special night.

Our seats were about 12th row.

Madonna and Warren Beatty were in front of us.

Nyro was mesmerizing.

1980's singer, white guy with some facial hair, sounded black, can't remember his name. Within minutes I had the name I couldn't remember, Grayson Hugh.
