Heart-felt, visceral country-accented vocals, the slide guitar, & phenomenal lyrics - *plus* rock and roll, country, the blues, and some reggae beats in at least three tracks ... she can play with the best of them and come out the "winner". Her voice is unique, her style of playing original - she sets the standards for modern blues and country female vocals. Only one other female vocalist achieved such fame and recognition -- Patsy Cline who is in a different category altogether ...
If you like 'feel good', 'tell it like it is' lyrics with an upbeat sound, at times gripping gut-wrenching vocals - it is here! This compilation has some classics like, "Let's Give Them Something to Talk About" and "I Can't Make You Love Me" but also unexpected slower, quieter tunes, such as "Dimming of the Day", "One Belief Away", and "Hear Me Lord". I hear a Caribbean reggae style beat in the last one ... it is also present at the beginning of "Have a Heart" and at least one other track. The bluesy style in many tracks are balanced off by other styles to create a well rounded complete collection.
I loved seeing Bonnie Raitt on TV specials but never bought her music. I am pleased to have found this compilation. Someone carefully sorted out 'the best' plus added a good sample of her different styles so that an uninitiated fan, like me, can have it all, in one CD. Anyone faintly attracted to 'cross-over' styles of country, blues, and rock and roll would love this CD. Once hearing this CD there will be no doubt about purchasing it. This lady is in a class by herself!

There aren't many influences out there that are still making it happen in the industry, when it comes to performing the Blues. Ironically, there aren't that many singers who can feel the Blues these days, either. For Bonnie Raitt, the Blues have been an unbelieveable part of her life, that helped earn her so many new fans, when everybody thought she was washed up in the early 80's.
The Best Of Bonnie Raitt, is a collection of some of her biggest songs, from her Capitol Records era. Every single song here is truly measured, from her Grammy-Winning albums Nick Of Time, and Luck Of The Draw, all the way to her lesser known albums, Fundamental and Silver Lining. There are so many good songs here that still, continue to show the trends like Something To Talk About, Thing Called Love, and Love Sneakin' Up On You, and I Can't Make You Love Me. Still, like most Greatest Hits Records, there seems to have flaws, and this one is no acception. There are a few good songs Bonnie recorded that weren't highlighted here, including her cover of Roy Orbison's You Got It, from the Whoopi Goldberg movie Boys On The Side, and her performances from her 1995 live record Road Tested, including Rock Steady with Bryan Adams. That was released on a similar Greatest Hits package across the Atlantic, and in Europe.
It is still just a shame that many people don't seem to know how to make quality Greatest Hits collections. Even though Bonnie Raitt, has truly made an impact on the Blues, they just aren't filled with them right here. Hopefully, the next Greatest Hits collection will be better. If You're a True Blue fan of Bonnie Raitt, I suggest you still get this collection.

This album is a superb compilation! Eighteen of Bonnie's best from 1989 to 2003 are crafted into a powerful collection that showcases her brilliant talent. I distinctly remember the first time I heard Bonnie Raitt's superb voice blending seamlessly with a blistering guitar soaring over a shuffle groove. The year was 1989, and the song was "Thing Called Love." Every track on the Grammy-winning "Nick of Time" was a tapestry woven from heartache, passion, and soul-wrenching honesty. The phenomental "Nick of Time" album became my introduction to the lady and her music, and I eagerly added her subsequent releases to my collection. A Bonnie Raitt album is more than a song list, it's a journey into human emotion, and the songs are chosen to complement each other. "Nick of Time" shares a feeling about growing older, with heart-felt intensity. Both "Love Letter" and "Have a Heart" are gut-wrenching reflections, penned by songwriter Bonnie Hayes. "Something to Talk About" is pure tongue-in-cheek humor of turning the tables on the busybodies, and you can almost hear a smile in Bonnie's voice, as she tears through this tune and the grooving "Love Sneakin' Up on You." The sadness pervading lost love in "I Can't Make You Love Me" is underscored by the passionate keyboardist Bruce Hornsby. Bonnie displays so much depth and feeling into such tunes as "You" and "Not the Only One." The equally blistering guitar and vocals sizzle on Bonnie's self-written "Spit of Love," a superb showcase of the songwriter's talent at work. It's a great complement to her other self-written tunes on this album. Bonnie sings about every emotion, and pours her heart and talent into every song.Read more ›

I have enjoyed Bonnie Raitt's work since I first heard her on the radio in 1990, but I have never been a HUGE fan. And I think this is a great CD for anyone who has even mildly enjoys Raitt's music. It has all the great hits ("I Can't Make You Love Me," "Have A Heart," etc.), and it omits the ones of questionable integrity ("Rock Steady" and "You Got It").

The CD blends her best hits with some great lesser-known material, like the shocking but great "Spit Of Love" and the gorgeous, tear-jerking ballad "You." (My only complaint with this CD is that it left off "I Ain't Gonna Let you Break My Heart Again," which is my favorite Bonnie Raitt song. But the CD is still an extraordinary listening experience without that song.)

I don't know what hardcore fans think about this collection, but I think it's one of the best "hits" albums I have heard in a long time. So if you've had a passing flirtation with Bonnie Raitt's infectous blend of blues and rock, pick this CD up. You won't be sorry. It's terrific!
