Bonnie Raitt
Old Grey Whistle Test
BBC TV Centre
Shepherd's Bush
London, England
3/24/76 (?)
3/26/76 (original broadcast date)

This juicy show was upped by Erictrader at TTD, where I obtained it. Its text file name displayed a date of 3/24/76, while a broadcast date of 3/26/76 was listed in his text file. Thus, I'm not really sure of the correct performance date, and thus, have listed both dates above. Also, he had incorrectly listed the video duration and had incorporated randomized chaptering (how irritating!). As such, I have used TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 to reset chapter points to correspond with the listed tracks, effectively eliminating the original, cheesy, one-button menu, and used that as an opportunity to crop out about 2 seconds of blank frames, to make for a smoother show. Hope you enjoy this video of a spry and foxy Bonnie on her way up to the stratosphere!

Per Erictrader:
"Long before she was a radio darling there was a sweet little redhead who could play the blues with the best of them. That's the Bonnie I love, and you will too."
