Boy, this question brings back memories! I remember seeing Jim Post there in the on-campus Amazing Grace back in '74. It was a very intimate and awesome performance. After that they moved to the Main Street area of Evanston. I remember seeing James Taylor's brother perform there. I dug around and found this comprehensive pdf http://www.library.northwestern.edu/archives/findingaids/Amazingrace.pdf you may want to download. I spent all my Babysitting money on the Amazing Grace Coffee House. I saw amazing performers there. Here's a list I recall: Odetta (I paid about 75 cents to see her), Steve Goodman, John Prine, Livingston Taylor, Sam Leopold, Kenny Bloom, Jim Post, Emmylou Harris, Redwood Landing, and more, but that's all I recall at the moment. It was an amazing place for teens since you could hear incredible performers/musicians and age didn't matter since they didn't serve alcohol. I wish that my 16 year old had a place like this to go. It was one of my fondest memories of childhood. It was a small ranchlike house right on the Northwestern campus and off the lakefront in Evanston. I just recall I was there pretty much every weekend and got all my friends hooked on it. I'm still playing guitar and I owe my interest to the Amazing Grace Coffee House. I hope that someone can put a clip on you tube. It would be great!

Amazing Grace is easier than Ode To Joy. That's why Amazing Grace is the Brown belt and Ode to Joy is the Black belt.
