OT- Bonnie's Back!

Bonnie Raitt of course and with a great new record. Her slide playing just gets better and better, man the girl can play!

Her selection of songs is great too with about 1/2 rockers and 1/2 sweet ballad-like songy songs. Emotional ones. After a first listen through the album I was inspired to pick up the guitar and play my ass off. I love it when that happens.

Edith Grove and other New Orleans people will be happy to hear that it sounds like she has been spending some time around the Neville's.

The record is called Slipstream and the tracks are as follows:

1. Used to Rule the World
2. You Can't Fail me Now
3. Take My Love with You
4. Standing in the Doorway
5. Split Decision
6. Right Down the Line
7. Not Cause I Wanted To
8. Million Miles
9. Marriage Made in Hollywood
10.God Only Knows
11.Down to You
12.Ain't Gonna Let You Go

I would have loved to add some production and other credits info but iTunes SUCKS for not providing that info with purchased downloads. Lazy fockers.

I highly recommend checking it out, just for the slide and electric guitar tones if nothing else. peace

I just bought this cd, and I love it! " Take My Love With You" is my favorite track on the cd but Bonnie is great all the way through. I hope to see her in concert soon.

There really isn't a bad track on the whole CD, although my personal favorite ,as of today, is the opener "Used to Rule the World". peace

Kudos to producer Joe Henry who gave Bonnie plenty of space to stretch out on guitar rather than try to temper the arrangements into "pop" songs.

Sometimes an artist puts out an album that is exactly what you want to hear from them. This is one of those albums. Flawless.
