When big names came to play in London, the Royal Albert Hall was the place to hear them. In an interview after her April 21, 1969, show Janis raved, "God, is that exciting, man! Nobody, nobody ever, anybody ever thought it would be that good! I didn't. Nobody else did... London was the best... They fuckin' got up and grooved, and then they listened. That was dynamite. You know, you can tell when they're really being selfish and they just wanna dance, but they worked, man, and when I'd do a soft song everybody'd shut up! That's too much, man. That's really too fuckin' much."
