I envy anyone picking this up at such a great price, and for the treasures they will find contained within. Over the years, I've bought all of them on CD from Amazon to replace my old vinyl, and although Bonnie has never made a bad album some of her very best work is to be found on these recordings. They range from the end of her early period and into the years before Nick of Time and the modern commercial success that she enjoys today. The records she has made in this latter part of her career are all very fine but I believe the essential Bonnie is to be found on her earliest recordings and among the discs here. My two favourite albums of Bonnie's have always been the under-rated Streetlights and Sweet Forgiveness and you have them here. The first takes a bit of a step away from the blues and folk of her first records and it really suits her. Her voice has always been very expressive and she wrings all the longing and meaning out of beautiful material such as That Song About the Midway, and John Prine's aching masterpiece Angel From Montgomery. By Sweet Forgiveness I think she'd reached the peak of her early career and with a great group of musicians she made perhaps her finest recording. She'd also returned to that familiar mix of blues, folk and ballads, highlights being Paul Siebel's lovely vignette Louise (Which I think she still performs today) and a heart wrenching cover of Jackson Browne's My Opening Farewell that can leave the listener on the floor. The other discs here, if perhaps not quite as essential, will reward repeated listening and contain many gems worthy of discovery. Bonnie comes from a time when music was organic and hadn't yet been swallowed up by the corporations. You can hear what I mean on these recordings better than I could ever put it.

I don't have this five album set but being a long time fan of Bonnie Raitt have them all individually - and I originally bought them all on vinyl - but can assure anyone who even remotely likes her work that there are some wonderful tracks here. You might not like all of the really early stuff, some of which can sound a little unsophisticated but every one of these discs contains several absolute classics and the journey they chronicle is quite astonishing. I know she is quite a "big name" now but why she was never a huge star from early on is beyond me. Give it a try - at this price you just can't go wrong.

Although this cool 5CD mini Box Set in WEA's "Original Album Series" misses out on Bonnie Raitt's fabulous first three albums – "Bonnie Raitt" (1971), "Give It Up" (1972) and "Takin My Time" (1973) – what you do get are the five that followed from 1974 to 1982. And what a humdinger it is too – Rock, Ballad, Country, Blues and Soul – Bonnie Raitt does the lot – and well. Here are the 'Lady Sings The Blues' details...

If you are more familiar with Bonnie's later work (from Nick of Time onwards), this set of 5 CDs offers a great opportunity to enjoy some very good earlier material. Each CD has its own feel, like the soulful 'Streetlights' and the New Orleans-tinged 'Sweet forgiveness'. Both of those are excellent albums that would each be worth the price of the 5 CD set. 'The Glow' includes what many (me included) consider to be Bonnie's finest moment, the stunning 'Going wild for you baby'.
'Home plate' is also a strong album. 'Green light' is almost all upbeat while not perhaps as good as the others. This set includes several classics, showcases Bonnies wide range of styles, and offers absolutely superb value for money.

Chose this series because it is an excellent way of accessing some of an artists early work.
The individual cd sleeve covers only contain the track names and there is very sparse album and artist information on the outer jacket but that can always be gathered from her website or from the internet generally.
