That is one fine and incredible artist as anyone with any brains knows..
We were lucky God created her for our enjoyment.
This is another incredible CD by her.
One that will be in the records books and our CD racks for many moons .
I am just happy I am on her list for Pre Orders.....so I don't miss any of her new CD's
Not much that's a hell of allot better than putting 5 Raitt CD's in my player ( that's the max that will fit in my player) and just do whatever I am with her in the background and especially the foreground if I can give her my full attention!
I don't care for a lot of the top songs and albums that are published say, inside back cover of Rolling Stone, and don't expect to see Bonnie Raitt in the list very often, if at all. But, for whatever reason, I've been asked to rate this purchase. So, I rate it as very good. If you're into blues, you certainly know that Bonnie Raitt is an outstanding performer and Slipstream is a decent album.
Fortunately, it's easy to listen to track samples before buying an album. Or, buying favorite mp3s for those who prefer that approach. If you are into Bonnie Raitt, blues or just plain good music, there's no need to care how I rate the album. Listen to the samples and make your own call. Just don't miss out.
Her music has "grown" with her. This CD is a bit different than her other releases, but is every bit as compelling. The more I listen to it, the more I realize that I'd better get another copy so I won't have to carry the one copy I have back and forth from the house to the car.
I haven't been revisiting her works from the past, because I have continued to listen to them as she is my all time favorite performer. Slipstream is up there on my playlist. With a variety of genre's included in this one CD, one won't tire of listening to it. As with Miss Raitt's other CD's, her words tell stories. While not always with happy endings( Marriage Made In Hollywood), they are sung/played with clear diction and great passion.
Welcome back Bonnie!
