Biography

With the release of her nineteenth album, Slipstream, Bonnie Raitt is starting anew.

Product Description

CD -EAN 077779126828-CAPITOL-1989 -MADE IN THE NETHERLANDS

Amazon.co.uk

Nick of Time is the watershed moment in Bonnie Raitt's recording career, the sound of a survivor finding new focus and purpose in her art after nearly 20 years of generally superb, commercially underachieving recordings. An exquisite interpretive singer and formidable guitarist who'd long ago honed her bluesy chops, Raitt raised the stakes by mixing the usual gourmet spread of smart cover choices with her own candid songs--and she knocked one over the fence with the opening track, the album's title song and a moving confession of a boomer's anxieties about age, death, and the impermanence of love. "Nick of Time" catapulted a feisty rock tomboy into a new station that made her as admired by female fans as the stage door johnnies who'd long loved her rock technique, and she covered the bet with other outside songs from John Hiatt ("Thing Called Love"), Bonnie Hayes ("Love Letter", "Have a Heart"), and Jerry L. Williams ("Real Man") that resonated with her persona as a tough, smart, but ultimately tender woman. --Sam Sutherland

Format: Audio CD
This was supposedly Bonnie's comeback record after she had been dropped by Warners in the mid-80s, along with similar artists such as Van Morrison. Don Was was brought in as producer and the resulting record was a return to the format of her best Warner's albums, ie a mixture of blues, ballads, folk and rock. Despite good critical response her previous records had never really sold well but 'Nick of Time got great reviews, won Grammies AND sold millions. I think it deserved to (but then again I think many of her previous albums should have) it sounds great, it has some good, commercial songs and Bonnie and her fabulous voice are the centre of everything.

She rocks out on tracks like John Hiatt's wonderful "Thing Called Love", "Real Man" and "I Will Not Be Denied" and also her own uptempo blues "The Road Is My Middle Name". For me it's the ballads that again are the standout tracks - "Cry On My Shoulder" and "Too Soon To Tell" and especially the marvellous "Nobody's Girl". There are also some nice mid-tempo commercial numbers like "Love Letter" and "Have a Heart". Bonnie also shows her versatility with the jazz-leaning "I ain't gonna let you break my heart again" (with Herbie Hancock on piano) but personally this isn't one of my favourite tracks.

Full marks to Don Was for achieving what a succession of produces before him couldn't do in giving Bonnie a best-selling album. I just hope Capital is aware what a wonderful artist they have in Bonnie Raitt.

There is a constant running through Bonnie Raitt`s many albums, a 24-carat guarantee of quality: that voice. It never lets you down. She is one of those rare singers who really could sing just about anything and you wouldn`t need to hear it sung by anyone else.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a singer who has made enough records will eventually take to the middle of the road, so it`s no surprise to find a glossier shine, a more obviously radio-friendly allure to this massive-selling `breakthrough` album. Listening to it now - and I am - what I hear is one of the finest blues/rock/soul singers of our time having a ball, albeit a slightly less abandoned one than on her previous, bluesier releases.
Bonnie has always had unerring taste in her choice of songs, and here is no exception. Anyone who latched on to the eloquent songs of the great John Hiatt (rather aptly spelt `Haitt` on the back cover!) as far back as 1989 is to be applauded, and she does his Thing Called Love proud. (There`s an even gutsier version on her marvellous live recording Road Tested.)
Jerry Williams wrote a good half of Clapton`s exceptional album Journeyman, and Bonnie sings his Real Man - not a particularly memorable song, it has to be said - with soulful aplomb.
Her own title track and bluesy closer The Road`s My Middle Name are superb. She has always been an excellent songwriter, rationing her contributions on her run of albums. It`s good to have two of them here.
I Ain`t Gonna Let You Break My Heart Again is Bonnie in break-your-heart mode, the heart being broken being the grateful listener`s. Boy, can this woman sing!
From what I can discern, Bonnie not only has perfect pitch, or as near as dammit, but seems to know instinctively how to pace and phrase a song.

8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 4 Feb. 2005
Format: Audio CD
Bonnie's recording career with Warner career had ended with some critics thinking that she was finished as a recording artist. They - and Warner - were proved wrong with this, her Capitol debut album, which was more successful than any of her Warner albums. The basic blues-rock style is still there, but this album is a little smoother, so appealing to a wider public. Winning a Grammy award for this album further boosted Bonnie's career.
The album is mainly filled with moody ballads, perhaps reflecting Bonnie's personal life when the album was recorded although Bonnie only wrote two songs - the first track (Nick of time) and the last track (The road's my middle name). The tempo picks up slightly for Thing called love (a John Hiatt song, not to be confused with the completely different Johnny Cash song with a similar title), Real man and The road's my middle name.
Apart from singing, Bonnie plays an instrument on most tracks - one of piano, guitar or slide guitar. Bonnie is supported by a variety of musicians, usually between three and five per track. Two tracks feature just one instrument each, giving them a folksy feel. On Nobody's girl, Bonnie sings while Chuck Domanico plays acoustic bass. On I ain't gonna let you break my heart again, Bonnie sings while Herbie Hancock plays piano.
This is an excellent album, well deserving of all the accolades - but then, a lot of Bonnie's earlier music deserved such accolades and didn't get them.

This album (along with Luck of the Draw) should be a cornerstone in anyone's Bonnie Raitt collection. From the up tempo "Nick of Time" to the heartfelt "Too soon to tell" there are tracks which will strike a chord with independant women everywhere. A must-have.

This album is a great intoduction to Bonnie if you have not come across her before,she has a voice that just ease's you into that relax state of mind.
I first heard Bonnie Raitt when she sang country and thought at the time how sad it was that she never made the big time until alot later.
I love the song I cant make you love me, it's one of those tunes and it's when i really knew that i loved her soulfull singing.
I would recommend this album to anyone looking for an intro into Miss Raitt you wont regret it a wonderful singer who will always stand the test of time.
