I remember it well, Rick. It was the Towne Crier, which used to be located in Pawling but which has since moved to Beacon (the home of Pete Seeger). If I remember correctly, this was the place where John sang "Chilly Winds" twice in a row. The second time he was responding to a request for "You Can't Go Back to Kansas" but stood there picking a nebulous introduction for maybe a minute before singing "I'm goin' where them chilly winds don't blow." Dave Batti looked first puzzled, then dismayed, then fell in musical step. I'd heard rumors of John's declining memory skills, and. sadly, this verified them for me.
