Our Review

Because Bonnie Raitt was not tied up in the New York or Los Angeles scenes, her 1971 debut was largely overlooked in the singer-songwriter sweepstakes of the early '70s. Raitt synthesizes a diverse and often unexpected body of material — everything from Stephen Stills’ “Bluebird” to the Marvelettes’ “Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead” and Tommy Johnson’s 1928 “Big Road Blues”— and makes it all feel like a living-room jam session. The warm, lived-in atmosphere is aided by producer Willie Murphy who recorded the album at an empty summer camp on Enchanted Island, isolated on Lake Minnetonka, about 30 miles west of Minneapolis. Because of its unusual locale and its homegrown cast of contributors — among them Junior Wells, Paul Pena and Raitt’s longtime cohort Freebo — Bonnie Raitt has an atmosphere unlike anything else. Of course, Raitt herself is the album’s rock. At only 21, she makes convincing the rollicking “Mighty Tight Woman” and “Walking Blues” as well as the aching “Thank You” and “Finest Lovin’ Man.” Her version of John Koerner’s “I Ain’t Blue” is unforgettable, one of the era’s slyest heartbreakers.

garage / cottage classic (5 stars)
like jackson browne, bonnie raitt's first three albums were all brilliant in unique ways. this, her first, was recorded with friends who clearly share a love for this music, these songs, and each other. bonnie's later recordings were justifiably popular, and this record is never going to have mass appeal. but it's so real, so natural, so beautifully curated, performed, and recorded, that it has a quality a performer can't rehearse or plan

Bonnie Raitt: Thank You (5 stars)
I love how young Bonnie Raitt sounds on this album. Thank you is one of my favorite songs of all time. She fully envelopes you and captures the feeling of new love that brings you fulfillment and safety of another's arms holding you when at times life can feel so lonely.

Long a critic's darling, singer/guitarist Bonnie Raitt did not begin to win the comparable commercial success due her until the release of the aptly titled 1989 blockbuster Nick of Time; her tenth album, it rocketed her into the mainstream consciousness nearly two decades after she first committed her unique blend of blues, rock, and R&B to vinyl. Born in Burbank, CA, on November 8, 1949, she was the daughter of Broadway star John Raitt, best known for his starring performances in such smashes...
