With the release of her nineteenth album, Slipstream, Bonnie Raitt is starting anew. The album marks her return to studio recording after seven years; it's coming out as the launch of her own label, Redwing Records; and it delivers some of the most surprising and rewarding music of her remarkable career, thanks in part to some experimental sessions with celebrated producer Joe ...

Product Description

Amazon.com

A sense of self-confidence permeates Road Tested. If the '70s were marked by promise and the '80s by disappointment, the '90s, thanks to three smash studio albums, have been sheer triumph for Raitt, and she sounds damned satisfied. Her first live recording after 24 years in the business, Road Tested is an all-things-to-all-people effort, unsurprising given its creator has become all things to an awful lot of people. Steadfast favorites, '90s hits, and fresh additions to her repertoire are spiced by guest appearances by Bruce Hornsby, Ruth Brown, Charles Brown, Jackson Browne, Kim Wilson, and Bryan Adams. Raitt is in fine voice, her playing is great, and the band is solid. What's missing? Maybe some of that vanquished brashness and desperation. --Steve Stolder

Bonnie Raitt is wonderful in the rockin' live recording.

She is even better in person which is rare in the music business.

I had heard a few recent songs of hers and decided to buy the CD.

She had been around for over two decades, appearing live in the Cambridge, MA jazz and blues clubs long before she had her first recording contract. She had been on stage with all the greats of the business. She had received triple Grammies for her 1989 release "Nick of Time." Her fans, ignited by her fiery live appearances, had been clamoring for a live album for years. Yet, it took Bonnie Raitt 25 years, a personal and professional roller coaster ride, and a succession of three bestselling albums ("Nick of Time" and the early 1990s releases "Luck of the Draw" and "Longing in Their Hearts," all produced by Don Was) until finally, in 1995, a series of live appearances in Oakland, California and Portland, Oregon were recorded and blended together in this album, appropriately titled "Road Tested."

When the project was put together, Bonnie called on a number of friends, with whom she had shared the stage many times before and whose songs, having found a whole new interpretation in her performance, had become staples in her live repertoire long ago. And they all came: R&B legends Ruth and Charles Brown ("The jewels in our crown up here," Raitt commented when introducing them on stage), as well as rockers Bryan Adams, Kim Wilson, Bruce Hornsby and Jackson Browne; in addition to her seasoned stage band, led by Ricky Fataar (drums) and "Hutch" Hutchinson (bass), without whom, to this day, a Bonnie Raitt live appearance is simply unthinkable. And as always, Bonnie was deeply appreciative of everybody who showed up for the occasion: "Special thanks ... for coming to add so much to this long awaited project.

The way to hear an artist like Bonnie Raitt perform, is live, and if you can't see her perform live, then this album is the next best thing. Joined by a host of well known talent, including Bryan Adams and Jackson Browne, this is one of the best live albums I have. This is blues/rock at it's best. And the 16 page booklet is packed with photos of her live performance, including all the guest musicians and band. This is an album that any fan of Bonnie Raitt should own.

I love all of Bonnie Raitt's music (always have, always will) but this one ROAD TESTED is exceptionally special to me. (Love Me Like A Man, Feeling Of Falling...so sexy!) Not only do I listen to this set just about every day (the neighbors have never complained about it blasting out of my house), but I had the privelage of watching her and her band of angelic musician friends (Bruce Hornsbey, Jackson Brown, Shawn Colvin and others) belt out these beautiful, soulful blues (up close and personal) last summer at a live concert at the Gorge in George, WA. At one point as I was in my fit of ecstasy screaming to get her attention, she pointed right at me and said "Yah, I see ya there, you know what I mean!" I almost passed out....that woman rocks me! If you haven't heard this stuff...Run (don't walk) and get this CD. Your life will never be the same! God Bless You Bonnie!.. Your faithful fan sending Angels to watch over you! ...PQ

Format: Audio CD
In Bonnie Raitt's first live album recording, she delivers her magic better than in any recording studio. That fine southern voice, slickness of her slide & energetic great duets with some of today's finest provide the live atmosphere in the listener's head.
Raitt's vocals are best justified by "Angel of Montgomery" when you can feel the passion. Another personal fave has to be "I can't make you love me"- a woman who shares an experience we have all, at one time or another, shared. She puts words to music so beautifully.
"Burning Down the House" makes me want to rewind & listen to again - immediately...but my absolute favourite has to be her duet with Bryan Adams "Rock Steady". My most listened to track of the year. The chemisrty of their performance is so powerful that the listener can feel it without watching them!
This is just a brilliant album, from start to finish & shows Raitt at her best- performing.
Go buy, you won't regret!!

Her version of, "I Can't Make You Love Me", on this album gives me goose bumps. You can really hear the passion in her voice. Bruce Hornsby, Jackson Browne, Brian Adams, and others join her for some great songs. This is one album that stays in the car, always! The quality of the sound is great too. I happen to like live albums - they make you feel like you're there!

GET THE DVD INSTEAD.

This is from a 1995 concert that was staged to be filmed. The total time is 105 minutes. You can get this on DVD instead, which I would recommend.

This CD sounds like it is ripped right from a video. There is just something about it, with the dynamic range and the way it is mixed. When I first played it on my stereo, I kept involuntarliy looking over at my TV, expecting to see some video.

Overall, it is a nice peformance from Bonnie Raitt, but it isn't the best one I have heard. It is better than the one released in 2006. However, I have heard other radio shows and CD's that are better, but for some reason currently aren't officially available.

One of the problems with this show and her latest live CD's is that they try too hard to come up with polished product. So, all the hits are here, but they are done too close to the studio versions. She doesn't open up like when she isn't under the pressure to create a video.

The other problem is too many guest stars. People always go nuts when there are famous guest stars on these videos. Sometimes there are magic moments. But usually, they are just a distraction. These guest stars do not practice with the band, don't really know the songs and just go through the motions. I would rather hear more of Bonnie Raitt than some inferior performance by Bryan Adams.

In spite of the sound quality and some stale moments, this is still a very nice CD and I would recommend it to anyone who likes any of Raitt's songs.
