Bonnie Raitt will release her first album in seven years and it’s called Slipstream.

USA Today is reporting that the renowned blues singer and guitarist has been taking a break for the past few years after losing her parents, brother and best friend.

“I took a hiatus from touring and recording to get back in touch with the other part of my life,” Raitt, 62, said in a statement.

The 12-track album features blues, rock and soul including a cover version

Bob Dylan’s “Million Miles” and Loudon Wainwright III’s “You Can’t Fail Me Now.”

“It’s just a new batch of great songs,” said Raitt, who will tour again this year.

First time I saw Bonnie was at the Santa Monica Civic, must have been around 1977 or so and the Tom Johnston band opened for her. Tom was estranged from the Doobies at this time and had a small hit out in, "Show me"...anyway, the memorable part of the show for me was the encore. Bonnie brought her father out on stage and in no time at all her band was rolling into the song "Oklahoma " with her Father singing lead and walking back and forth across the stage. I was just in a kid and was one of many in the crowd busy uttering the most popular word in that venue..."ear".....I can recall looking around and seeing plenty of peeps looking around with a 'wtf"? expression on their faces...As I look back now, just another cool R&R memory...



Years ago I caught a show on TV (maybe PBS) with Bonnie and her dad, John with the Boston Pops. I just checked out Youtube, and here's a clip from there. She then does "Nick Of Time". Bonnie is just amazing. Have always loved her music and seeing her concerts - very humble musician.

I'd like to say again how great her show was on Friday Night.




Ty Webb: (letting Danny hit) Find your center, picture the shot Danny, picture it, turn off all the sound just let it happen, be the ball, be the ball Danny, you’re not being the ball Danny…
Danny: Well it’s kinda difficult with you talking like that.

Danny: Where'd it go?
Ty Webb: right in the lumber yard.

LOL

Most amusing was when someone brought a life-size cardboard cut-out of her (from the "Sweet Forgiveness" album cover) to the front of the stage. Her comments about herself and Linda Ronstadt were very funny.

Her show sure was fantastic Fri night Woodsdweller! You wrote a very nice review and I'd also like to add that her banter and stage presence is wonderful each time I've seen her perform! Here's the set list...

Used to Rule the World
Right Down the Line
(Gerry Rafferty cover)
Something to Talk About
Million Miles
You Can't Fail Me Now
Come to Me
Marriage Made in Hollywood
Thing Called Love
Not Cause I Wanted To
Angel From Montgomery
Down to You
I Got News for You
I Feel So Damn Good (I'll Be Glad When I Get The Blues)
Encore:
I Can't Make You Love Me
Have a Heart
Green Lights w/Terry Adams
Never make your move too soon w/Terry Adams

Mavis was great too and her band was wonderful! I did however prefer some songs over others but how can you not enjoy someone who has been around making music for so many decades.

Here's a little video I shot...

MS ~ Freedom Highway
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQxS4tfvT-w

MS ~ Eyes On The Prize
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXDDz0wDyZw

MS ~ I'll Take You There
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDZ3iwyOho0

BR ~ Have A Heart!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrkt5SaK0ZM

BR ~ w/Terry Adams (NRBQ) Green Lights
Had to edit a small portion out of the video due to crowd issue.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8D7AIF_sUHQ

BR ~ Never Make Your Move Too Soon!
Only first verse clip.

Just got back from Bonnie Raitt's show at Mountain Park in Holyoke.

WOW.

She was in termendous voice. Her guitar playing was incredible. Did a large chunk of songs from the new "Slipstream."

Can't say enough good things about her backing band (Ricky, Hutch, George and Mike).
Mike in particular brought the house down during a Ray Charles tribute.

Bonnie's a huge NRBQ fan. The Q's Terry Adams happened to be there and sat in for a few tunes, including the surprise of the night: An NRBQ tune (I think it's called "Anyway You Want It").

She shared memories with the crowd about all her past gigs in Mass. (Lenox in particular).
Bonnie got her start in Cambridge, Mass, so she has a long connection to the Bay State.
Talked about how much she loves the Berkshires.

We didn't get to catch her opener, the legendary Mavis Staples (we were caught in a massive traffic jam before the show on Rte. 5 in Holyoke).

A wonderful show. She received several standing ovations, particularly during "I Can't Make You Love Me," and "Angel From Montgomery." She opened the show with Randall Bramlett's "Used To Rule The World."

Scattered thundershowers were forecasted, but never happened. It was a beautiful night for an outdoor show.

I specifically asked my band members to give me this night off to see Bonnie, and I'm damn sure glad I did.

Someone at work lent me the new album. It's a nice listen. It will probably get some spins while I'm grilling this summer. She must have been bitten by Dylan's Time Out of Mind record. 2 covers from it on this. Real cool to know Bonnie was sucked into the world Bob created on that great album like myself.

If Gregg Allman does another album, he should consider getting bonnie to produce it.
