Our Review

Bonnie Raitt’s musical approach crystallized on her 1972 album Give It Up. At only 23, Raitt was something of a prodigy, a cross between Sweet Emma Barrett and Carole King. Thanks to producer Michael Cuscuna, Give It Up isn’t quite as wild as its predecessor — Raitt’s eponymous debut is a gloriously salty back-porch affair — but it still manages to mash together several strands of American music. Luckily Raitt doesn’t shoot for the silky country-rock synthesis that was in vogue at the time. Instead “Give It Up or Let Me Go,” “I Know” and “You Got To Know How” hit upon a kind of fortuitous collision of ideas — as if a folk group decided to play blues for one night, and along the way picked up a New Orleans brass band. The only group who could achieve a mix as groovy was Little Feat, great friends and collaborators with Raitt. The singer is great at leading the party, but she really slays on the ballads. “Nothing Seems to Matter,” “If You Gotta Make a Fool of Somebody” and “Love Has No Pride” are disarming tearjerkers that retain a scarred dignity in spite of Raitt’s vulnerability.

Customer Reviews

A Classic (5 stars)

This remains for me the quintessential Bonnie Raitt album. Great songs that range from heartfelt to ball-busting. Been listening to this for over 30 years, and it has only improved with age.


not the same as '72 vinyl issue (4 stars)

This doesnt sound like the vinyl issue from '72. I wore that album out and know every note-still cool, but its not the same.


QUINTESSENTIAL BONNIE (5 stars)

Years before the multiple Grammy's and the platinum records, Bonnie quietly made brillant records like this one, while a small but devoted fan base listened. Considering how big that fan base eventually (and deservedly) became, it's astonishing to see how few reviews this world class artist has gotten on itunes…even for her biggest records. Like Aretha, Bonnie is one of the greatest singers of all time, and this is one of her classics.


Biography

Genre: Rock
Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Long a critic's darling, singer/guitarist Bonnie Raitt did not begin to win the comparable commercial success due her until the release of the aptly titled 1989 blockbuster Nick of Time; her tenth album, it rocketed her into the mainstream consciousness nearly two decades after she first committed her unique blend of blues, rock, and R&B to vinyl. Born in Burbank, CA, on November 8, 1949, she was the daughter of Broadway star John Raitt, best known for his starring performances in such smashes…
