Opened in 1964, The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion is part of the Los Angeles Music Center with a capacity of 3197 seats across four tiers.

This was the first of 2 nights Joni played in Los Angeles.

On a side note, just recently on Nov. 6 & 7, 2018. Joni celebrated her 75th birthday at The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

The event brought out a wide array of artists to perform Joni's songs.

Joni did not perform at her 75th gathering, but rather just watched others perform her music.

Since Joni suffered a brain aneurysm in 2015, Joni has made very few public appearances in the last three years.


On another side note, the reason I even considered posting this show was because I recently received a different tape transfer that was labeled as this 3/3/74 show, but that transfer was much shorter, missing many songs,

After comparing the 2 copies I had, it was evident that the shorter tape was NOT 3/3/74 at all. Along with having an extra song "For Free", which was not performed on 3/3/74. this shorter tape is a mystery, which I can't confirm the date. so that tape will be shelved for the time being. If anyone cares to give it a listen, let me know and I'll send it to you.


This version was originally in SHN format, but I converted back to Wave for inspection and then converted to Flac.
