Guitar-slinging blues mama, erudite songwriter and social activist, Bonnie Raitt has become a veritable institution within American music over her three-decade plus career. This overdue Best of… features some of her greatest hits since she signed up with Capitol in 1989. The songs included date back to her seminal and profile-raising (not to mention multi-Grammy winning) album Nick of Time and through definitive moments from the other five albums she has released with the label.

Given Raitt's prolific nature and consistently solid output, it must have been a difficult task narrowing this collection down to just 18 songs, but ultimately it seems to flow well, illustrating that despite her increasingly mainstream status and sound, she has still written some kick-ass blues and rock & roll alongside the sugary ballads and saccharine pop hits. From the doo-wop flavour of "Something to Talk About", through torch songs ("I Can't Make You Love Me", "You", "Lover's Will"), raw blues numbers ("Love Sneaking Up on You", "Love Me Like a Man") and some booty-shaking rock & roll ("Rock Steady", "I Believe I'm in Love with You") this is a passionate and sensitive album, and a must for all Raitt fans. --Paul Sullivan

This is a fantastic album. Bonnie Raitt seems to be little known over here, although she's well known and respected in the States. I first heard her on her Grammy-winning 'Nick of Time' album. This 'Best Of' album pulls together some fine songs.She has a voice that can pull off blues, rock, country, ballad and a pop-style.
The songs on this album are evocative, moving from tales of ageing and loneliness through finding love, losing love and accepting all that life throws at her. The stand-out track for me will always be the achingly beautiful but sad 'I Can't Make You Love Me' but I must confess to also loving the bluesy 'Love Me Like A Man' and the rock of 'Rock Steady' which sees her rocking with Bryan Adams. In fact, I could wax lyrical about the first 14 songs or so on this 18 track album.
If you've never heard Bonnie Raitt before, give this album a try. I sure you won't be disappointed.

During the seventies and eighties, Bonnie recorded many fine albums for Warner, building up a significant fan base without really hitting the big time. Eventually, Warner lost interest and Bonnie's contract was not renewed. She switched to Capitol in 1989 and recorded the album Nick of time, which won plenty of awards and sold better than any of her Warner albums.
This compilation covers Bonnie's music on Capitol from 1989 to 2003. Overall, the music is slicker than Bonnie's Warner recordings - not so much as to put off long-standing fans but enough to attract a lot of new fans. Thus, there is more pop and rock but less blues in these recordings, while there is little or no folk that was so significant in some of Bonnie's seventies albums. However, there are other influences, most notably the final track (Hear me Lord), a Zimbabwean song that retains some of its African flavor.
The album opens with three tracks from Nick of time, which are followed by three from Luck of the draw, three from Longing in their hearts, three from the live album Road tested, two from Fundamental and four from Silver lining. Among the highlights are Thing called love, Something to talk about, I can't make you love me, Rock steady (with Bryan Adams) and the aforementioned Hear me Lord.
This is a truly magnificent collection of Bonnie's music. I still favor her Warner recordings, for which there is also a compilation (Bonnie Raitt Collection). Buy both if you can afford to.

Putting together a Best of by Bonnie Raitt after a
decade of excellent musical adventures (Capitol years 1989-2003)
and touring the British Isles and Scandanavian countries this summer, should
bring Bonnie more worldwide fans and more regonition. With so few slide guitar/blues based female rock/pop artist out there with musical taste shes shone all these years,
Bonnie Raitt stand alones in the music world and the material on this new collection prove why Bonnie deserves to be more popular in Europe. There is just so much excellent kick ass material
and heartfelt songs one after the other and this barely hits
on what made Bonnie such a loved artist well before these
recordings. Bonnie expanded her sound during the 90's thanks to the talents of people like Don Was and company and Bonnie's finally believing in what she can do in the studio. From first rate songs as
"Thing called Love" and "Something to talk about" to her classic "I can't make you love me" to the smokin blues of "Love sneaking up on you", "Love me like a man" and "I believe I'm in love w/you"
to the newer stuff "Spit of Love", a great Bonnie original, the beautiful "Silver Lining" the
finger popping R&B class of "Time of our Lives" and the
stylistic gems "I can't help you now" and "Hear me Lord" Bonnie
Raitt continues to expand her musical boundries and is a pure
talented dynamite in a prefab 15 min fame world. Looking forward
to Best of Bonnie Raitt Vol.2 years.

Every since Bonnie blasted back into the music scene in mid 1989
with "Nick of Time" and won all those grammy awards during the 90's and has amassed quite a cataloge of excellent music, a "Best of" had not surfaced until now. Its
hard for an artist like Bonnie Raitt to do the "Best of" thing
as she's really not a singles artist but a blues/rocker who
makes great records that mean so much to her long time fans.
Shes made great ballads, folk gems, rockers, blues, funk and soul stand outs as well. Quite a feat, almost peerless
for the a woman recording artist. Radio did catch up with her in the first part of the 90's
and most of these "hits" are included here. Bonnie has went on recording and doing concerts during
the latter part of the 90's and into 2002 without much radio
play put thats because radio has changed so much in favor of
young artists and more so the more fly by nights who are created by the record mogals for flash and disposal. Still Bonnie, in her early 50's continues to put
out the goods and just going to her shows proves her longevity and true talent can't be manufactured.
The latter material on The Best of Bonnie Raitt showcases her
current material from her 98' and 2002' releases and hopefully
people will get back in tune with what makes Bonnie Raitt so
special. I think Capitol should have inclued "Gnawin on it" from
her recent Silver Lining, my personal favorite and the John Lee Hooker duet "In the
mood" which was her first grammy winner in 89'. So many Raitt
choice cuts but this is a long player and everyone should have
this upgrade on their CD players. Its a great edition to "The
Bonnie Raitt Collection" which showcased her 70's and 80's
career highlights.
