I like the Taliking Heads quite a bit but this shocked me when I heard her doing a cover of Burning Down the House on XM.

I found a video on YouTube

Yeah, I first heard her version on "Road Tested", which I just checked and found that it was released in 1995. I just had that CD on this week for the first time in quite a while.

Mrs. Yank Weed, maybe you ought to put the bong down for a little bit. Bonnie sounds like Susan T??? Bonnie was white girl queen of the blues before Susan T. was even born. Bonnie is also easily one of the best slide players around today and has been since the early Seventies. I just got Bonnie Raitt Live at Montreax 77 on DVD. Kick ass!!! I also saw her that same year on her "Sweet Forgiveness" tour. Let me tell you Bonnie affected the way I look at women ever since. 77 is at least a couple of years before Susan T was born. Bonnie is Bonnie! Do yourself a favor and accept no substitute.

I've always loved Bonnie's version of Burning Down the House!!! This lady is such an incredible talent - both on guitar and vocally - and she is a humanitarian...she's done so much work for music in the schools, helping keep the blues alive and providing aid for the pioneers of this art, etc, etc. Charlesinator - you are right...Bonnie is the real deal!

I first saw Bonnie Raitt in 1972 open for Paul Butterfield's Better Days band at the Troubadour in LA. Just Bonnie solo with a Guild acoustic guitar sounding as great as she does in this video. Susan Tedeschi was going on 2 years old at the time.

Thank you.
I would have to say Susan does her best to TRY to sound like Bonnie!
Wasn't able to find anything with Bonnie doing "Louise",but it is one of my favorites for her voice.

Artist: Raitt Bonnie
Song: Louise

Well they all said Louise was not half bad
It was written on the walls and window shades
And how she'd act the little girl
A deceiver, don't believe her that's her trade
Sometimes a bottle of perfume,
Flowers and maybe some lace
Men brought Louise ten cent trinkets
Their intentions were easily traced
Yes and everybody knew at times she cried
But women like Louise they get by

Well everybody thought it kind of sad
When they found Louise in her room
They'd always put her down below their kind
Still some cried when she died this afternoon
Lousie rode home on the mail train
Somewhere to the south I heard it said
Too bad it ended so ugly,
Too bad she had to go this way
Ah but the wind is blowing cold tonight
So good night Louise, good night

Man I'm going to age myself here but I saw Bonnie in a beer joint in Wausau Wisconsin back in 77. If I remember correctly there was a 5- 5 1/2 dollar cover charge. There was maybe 100-120 people in the whole place. Within a month I saw Luther Allison at the same place.

Rosshmusic, you are right. I've got a bad feelin' Alzheimers is contageous!

Susan was born 11/09/70.


Thanks OTF! Anyways went to Bonnie's site and checked her discography. Bonnie's first commercial release was 70. "Sweet Forgiveness" which contains the version of "Louise" that you seek Fanfrom-71 was her sixth album and released in 77 when Susan T was all of 7 years old. How's my math holding out y'all? Anyway folks I don't begrudge Ms. Tedeschi/Trucks anything. I am certainly not her biggest fan. I just have a hard time sitting still when more than a few around here want to crown her the next best thing since sliced bread and have never heard of or heard Bonnie Raitt. Bonnie is the best bar none to this day at what she does. It's funny but I've always thought a killer double bill or at least a duet would be Bonnie and Dickey Betts!

I think you read to much meaning behind Mrs. Yankweed's statement. I don't think that she meant Bonnie was trying to sound like Susan but rather they have a similar sound.

The proper explaination would be that Susan sounds similar to Bonnie which makes sense because Bonnie would be someone that any Blueswoman would want to sound like.

You are bang on about Bonnie's talents. Not just a pretty face that can sing and hold a guitar. She is talent. I never liked the Talking Heads personally but this version by Bonnie is as good as that song gets for me.

Another good one.

Bonnie was the 1st one (other than John) I heard cover Angel From Montgomery and she really made that tune hers. Another cover Bonnie does that I absolutely love...

Bonnie is my hero!

And Susan T. sounds a lot like her. But Susan is not Bonnie.

Susan Tedeschi is great, but she has a long way to go to catch up to Bonnie.

Bonnie covered "Louise".. on the album "Sweet Forgiveness"

The first time I saw Bonnie was probably back in 76 or so. She was headlining @ the Santa Monica Civic Center and Tom Johnston from the Doobie Brothers opened. ( Tom had just been asked to leave the Doobies and had a Small hit with "Show me") The show itself was good, but the thing I remember is the encore. The show ends and the lighters come out, Bonnie walks out and says her thanx and proceeds to bring out her Father, Broadway star John Raitt. The band rips into "Oklahoma" with Bonnie playing slide Guitar while her father sings the Broadway Hit... "ooooklahomaaaa" My friends and I in the crowd, must have had this "Wtf"? look on our faces as John Raitt sang a Broadway hit to a bunch of stoned out rock 'n rollers.
FF to about 1986. By this time I was a Die hard Bonnie fan and had seen her maybe 5 times. So Bonnie comes to Humphrey's in San Diego. I rush down, score two great seats and as of the day of the concert .. I couldn't get anybody to go with me. Why?... Nobody had heard of her... Bonnie Who?... Randy raitt?...Then she won the grammy and all that changed...

Also, If I remember correctly, Bonnie and our Own Gregg Allman had a "Thing" for a while.

Hey Yank, if I offended the Mrs. please forgive me. But ... she did say, "(Bonnie Raitt) definitely sounded alot like Susan T." though. And ... this is the Forum. And ... sarcasm with or without smileys should be expected. (Comparing me to Johnny Wadd shows that you aren't totally devoid of humor.) This is a music site and ... one should infer that there may be some strong opinions concerning perception and or taste found therein. On this particular topic (which was about Bonnie Raitt by the way) I found Mrs. Weed's comment utterly ridiculous. Bam!!! Before I knew it, I'd fired off a response into cyberspace. I probably could have used a smiley. I keep forgetting that people can't tell sarcasm without them. I felt the response was pretty harmless as well. Anyways ... Happy Holidays to the Weed family and everyone else here. Also you're right I probably could use a b-hit. Got any kind????

Bonnie Raitt....album Give it Up. She's 23, playing slide and singing the blues with a gang of her peers! She'll always be my hero and my fave female slide player. Lowell George being my fave male slide player, singer, songwriter. I do love those Tequila Circuit guys. They make some fine, no, extra fine music!

Saw Bonnie open for Little Feat, at the Fox. She came out and played with them, too. It was off the charts fun!!! Saw Bonnie open for Jackson Browne, at the
Muni. auditorium...or was it the other way around? Willie Howard, a little help, if you please?! I've seen Bonnie a hundred times and hope for a hundred more. Saw Little Feat a hundred times, with Lowell. Have seen them twice with out Lowell. Once in '81 at the Agora and two weeks ago at Suwannee Music Park! They are still kicking my ass with their funky-boogie.

"All hail, Bonnie Raitt!"

Thanks for that link, cupofjo. Bonnie is fabulous!

I'd love to see her do this with David Byrne.
He sat in with Lucinda Williams when I saw her in NYC and they did "Take Me To The River"....wow...those 2 onstage together .... a highlight in my concert going career for sure.

Love Bonnie with Bruce Hornsby, too! Thanks for that link Deb. They did I Can't Make You Love Me when I saw them at Jones Beach in 1994; could've heard a pin drop.

I also love her cover of John Hiatt's "(Are You Ready For The) Thing Called Love". Last time I saw him, he mentioned "the redhead" during the song. Said "here's the verse the redhead left out" . (wouldn't fit for a woman to sing it)
