    Just back from seeing RT at the Keswick.  Breathtaking, as usual…..I went to YouTube after to listen to his version and Bonnie Raitt’s of “Dimming of the Day.”  Then I looked up Bonnie’s old song, “Blender Blues,” recorded at the Rainbow Room in Philly in 1972.  Does anyone know where that venue was?  I’m stumped.  I don’t think she ever recorded the song; I know she sang it on a Philly radio station back then – WMMR???  Thanks.
