Bonnie Raitt, interpreter of the blues and beyond,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Luck Of The Draw (Audio CD)
This album came out in 1991, and was (I think) her first solo outing on the coat tails of her highly successful collaboration with John Lee Hooker on his "Healer" album.
This collection finds her covering songs by Womack and Womack, John Hiatt, and Paul Brady, but the centre-piece of the album has to be the achingly beautiful "I Can't Make You Love Me" which has Bruce Hornsby's sublime piano playing accompaniment. The album runs the gamut of emotions, from out and out rockers, to ballads, and in between.
The playing is always top drawer, the grooves are impeccable, and the emotional integrity invested into the songwriting is always apparent. All of these things combined make for a very satisfying collection of songs, and a great listening experience every time you drop laser onto shiny disc.Luck Of The Draw
