    I saw this great performer at Wood Stock, so many years ago and I cannot forget her performance along with so many great performers. I just got back from Viet NAM and I heard about this concert. I had to go. Can you imagine what they thought of me with my short hair cut. They really accepted me for me. God did I grow up in just weekend.

    Impossível enjoar! Ela se entregava de uma forma meio suicida no palco! Ninguém fez igual até hoje!

    "You can go all around the world Trying to find something to do with your life, baby, When you only gotta do one thing well, You only gotta do one thing well to make it in this world, babe. You got a woman waiting for you there, All you ever gotta do is be a good man one time to one woman And that'll be the end of the road, babe"

    Дикая, обезбашенная, накуренная, но в её "Жемчужине" всё-таки что-то есть.
