It is hard to believe that it has been twenty years since I saw Joan perform in front of seven people on a cold winter night at Wetlands. When she did her cover of “Son of a Preacher Man” it was obvious to me (I know very little about these things) that she was a force of nature and would one day become famous…A year or so later, she did make it big when her song “If God Was One of Us” went national…

i used to see her all the time 20 years ago & always wondered why she wasn’t famous too!
The first time I saw her was at the Hygienic Cafe in New London, CT. I was amazed. I was excited when I heard that she had a song, “One of Us”. I was disappointed because the song did not have the power and authority of her early voice.
She frequently played that old club “Delta 88” on 8th Ave., and cut an album there which she would sell for like $10.00
