4.0 out of 5 stars Bonnie's first (almost) big hit album. October 14, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When this was released in 1977, it looked as if the mainstream was about to catch up with the incredible music machine named Bonnie Raitt. Alas, they would have to wait another 12 years until the release of Nick of Time. This one has it all, however. Containing some of Bonnie's most rocking numbers (Gamblin' Man and Three Time Loser) to her most mellow and introspective (Paul Siebel's classic "Louise" and her take on Jackson Browne's "Farewell", Sweet Forgiveness is one of the best of the early Raitt repetoire.

5.0 out of 5 stars The quintessential Bonnie Raitt album! February 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It is, by far, her best! To me, her later recordings,including "Nick of Time," were lack-luster and contrived.This folksy, bluesy concoction of really good songs with meaningful, passionate lyrics is one of my all-time favorite albums! END

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation June 12, 2002
By Jeanie
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorites. It has a nice mixture of music that demonstrate how versatile Bonnie is. There are acoustic cuts, like Louise, as well as some a little heavier on the rock/blues side like "Three Time Loser". Another favorite is the re-make of "Runaway". She does a very good job with an older song. This CD doesn't have as much of the blues (I like slide guitar) as some of her others, but is still very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Two Lives" the standout March 10, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful CD. Bonnie can't go wrong from the first track to the last, but what made it a superb CD, for me is #3 "Two Lives" The arrangement of the choral background and the heart breaking lyrics is beautiful. You find yourself singing along with the chorus, "Someone said time will ease the pain of losing your love." "But, I believe whorever wrote that song, never had a broken heart." Just a gorgeous song. I also like Bonnie's interpretation of Del Shannon's "Runaway." She gave it a piquant country flavor, very refreshing. This is a great CD,

5.0 out of 5 stars Her best, I think... February 17, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Although all of her albums are great, I consider this one her best, but this is probably because it is the first Bonnie Raitt album I purchased many years ago. Need I mention, Bonnie has a voice like an angel and is a person with a definate knack for the blues with a funky rock and roll heart. Bonnie is also one of those individuals that is constantly, always, striving for a great sound on her recordings (and live, did you see her on Leno?) and will never stop rocking. If you've never listened to her music, your missing out on one of the best musical talents ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars The quintessential Bonnie Raitt album! February 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I was taken aback when I discovered that AMAZON did not include this album in Bonnie's essential recordings list! This is by far her best! Many of her more recent recordings are too contrived. This folksy, bluesy concoction of really good songs with meaningful, passionate lyrics is one of my all-time favorites!

5.0 out of 5 stars My first and still my favorite July 7, 2012
By GerBob
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Sweet Forgiveness is the first Bonnie Raitt album I ever bought back when vinyl was the only option. Her version of Runaway is the best I've ever heard and it still gives me chills. I listen to this at least weekly. I have a 45 minute commute and this is great driving music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raitt's voice at her best on this uneven album July 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This underrated album showcases Bonnie Raitt's excellent voice before she trashed it with too much hard living. It also illustrates her ability to perform truly satisfying blues/rock with a gifted band of musicians. Listeners who became Raitt fans with the release of "Nick of Time" and later albums, as well as listeners who thought "Nick" and later albums aren't all that great, will be impressed with this disc, which is a much better example of her bluesy rock sensibility than the overproduced albums of the '90s. The song selection is uneven, but it's worth the price for the title song alone, which showcases Raitt's confident, low-key approach during this period of her career.

5.0 out of 5 stars Herself, Raitt commands her emotions with strength.
Bonnie Raitt is engaging and clear. These songs, particularly the rights-driven "I'm Takin' my Time" (different from the album) can be sung and taken everywhere!

She is really a great singer, and I do like this product, but it is not one of my favorite CD's. I love her live CD "Road Tested".

A lot of good music here, but for me, I got tired of the song 'Louise'. I also prefer the Karla Bonoff version of 'Home', which she wrote. Read more
