Bonnie Raitt's Slipstream

Blues-rock icon Bonnie Raitt's first studio album in seven years was worth the wait. In the album-cover photo of Raitt ascending stairs, she looks much younger than her senior-citizen status, and her voice and guitar playing haven't lost a lick.

Raitt sings and plays all kinds of blues: funky blues on opening cut "I Used to Rule the World," an oldies lament; smooth-rock blues on "Right Down the Line," which is reminiscent of her classic "Something to Talk About"; traditional blues on the Dylan penned "Million Miles" — "You took the silver and gold and left me standing in the cold." There’s some silky, jazzy blues on my favorite, "You Can't Fail Me Now"; sexy blues on "Take My Love with You"; Raitt makes her slide guitar cry as she strums heartbreak blues on "Not Cause I Wanted to"; she even dives into marriage blues on "Marriage Made in Hollywood," a song about her movie star ex-husband.

The production values and the sound quality throughout the collection are rich and clean, impeccable, and there is no filler here. If you don't own one of her 19 previous albums, this is an accessible inroad to Raitt. And if you’re a fan like me, welcome home, this is pure comfort music.

Alan, your music taste hasn't changed since the days when you sold too many Recoton Wireless Speakers. I love the new Bonnie CD and have it in my iPhone. Hope to see you in town. I am a SD resident. Cheers!
