Bonnie Raitt The Glow on 180g Import LP
More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. The recipient of ten Grammy awards, she appears on Rolling Stone's lists of both the Greatest Singers and Greatest Guitarists of All Time and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. Over the years, Raitt has contributed to over 100 album projects, collaborating with the likes of B.B.King, Willie Nelson, Ray Charles, and Stevie Wonder.
1979's The Glow captured Raitt at an important make-or-break period of her career, taking on popular cover material such as "I Thank You" by Sam & Dave, "Your Good Thing (Is About To End)" by Lou Rawls and "You're Gonna Get What's Coming" by Robert Palmer with support from the likes of Danny Kortchmar, Bill Payne, and Waddy Wachtel. Her rougher edges are balanced perfectly here by a polished production from Peter Asher, famous for putting James Taylor and Linda Ronstadt on tape. The Glow is a wonderful Raitt exercise, belonging in the ranks of her best overall albums.
