Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 492/500!
More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. The nine-time Grammy winner was named one of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" by Rolling Stone.
After forging an alliance with Capitol Records in 1989, Bonnie achieved new levels of popular and critical acclaim. She won four Grammy Awards in 1990three for her Nick of Time album and one for her duet with John Lee Hooker on his breakthrough album, The Healer. Within weeks, Nick of Time shot to number one.
The 1989 Nick of Time produced songs like "Thing Called Love", "Real Man", and "Love Letter", leading the album to be her 'come back' album following a bout with drug and alcohol abuse. Bonnie Raitt on her recovery from alcoholism in 1990 "I really feel like some angels have been carrying me around. I just have more focus and more discipline, and consequently more self-respect."
Musicians assisting Raitt with this album include "Herbie Hancock (piano), Graham Nash (backing vocals), David Crosby (backing vocals), and so many more.
Perhaps one of the most famous videos for Bonnie Raitt was "Thing Called Love" which starred Dennis Quaid as an admiring fan.
"Bonnie Raitts 'Nick of Time' views in a darker, more melancholic light times passage. Its release in 1989 struck a morbid, resonating chord with baby boomers then approaching or having hit 40. To say the song took a generation by surprise and made them contemplate their own mortality would not be overstating its impact. Our time as the young generation was over though most of us were too busy having fun to have noticed (and some still are!)." - analogplanet, Music 10/11, Sound 9/11
