The recently released 'best of' CD by country/blues star Bonnie Raitt just goes to show how sizeable the career of this redheaded Californian daughter of musical star John Raitt really is. Raitt sold 15 million albums worldwide with her specialty, imitated by only a few women: her bottleneck slide guitar and naturally laidback singing. Since her debut in '71, she has managed to combine authentic blues and a modern singer/songwriter style in an unsurpassed manner, with big hits like I Can't Make You Love Me, Something To Talk About, Love Sneaking Up On You and Thing Called Love to prove it. These songs are etched into the memory of any music lover. Whether playing her own compositions, performing duets with blues veteran John Lee Hooker and Bryan Adams or tracking down gems by unknown songwriters, she will always be the one and only Raitt, unadorned and free of contrived embellishments.
