TAS Super LP List! Special Merit: Informal

2012 Grammy Award Winner for Best Americana Album!

180g Double LP! Daring and Soulful - Classic Bonnie Raitt!
Bonnie's First Album In Seven Years!

"Best Bet for 2012" - Billboard Magazine

Bonnie Raitt's "Slipstream" is daring, bluesy, and steeped with the inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals that could only be hers.  Slipstream marks her first new album in seven years, and the debut for her newly minted label, Redwing Records.

While most of Slipstream is self-produced and features Raitt's longtime touring band, four of the album's songs were helmed by celebrated producer Joe Henry and showcase his usual crew of extraordinary musicians.  Additional guests include Bill Frisell, Al Anderson (formerly of NRBQ), Ireland's Paul Brady, and Maia Sharp.  The album's twelve tracks feature Raitt's renditions of songs by such luminaries as Bob Dylan, Joe Henry, and Loudon Wainwright III.  An updated reggae-fied version of Gerry Rafferty's "Right Down the Line" leads the charge as the album's first single.

Raitt's reinvented version of Gerry Rafferty's hit "Right Down The Line," is the first single from 'Slipstream' and has "just the right note of rueful worldly wisdom - and on her guitar solo, she shreds" (Rolling Stone). The single raced up the AAA radio chart, breaking into the Top 20 in less than 2 weeks and became the most added track at the format well in advance of its official radio launch date.

Said Raitt of her band, "They're all incredibly talented and we fit like a glove..."
