Bonnie Raitt - I'm In The Mood
December 9, 2019
Today's Monday Women in Blues shoutout goes to Bonnie Raitt.
During the 1970s, Raitt released a series of roots-influenced albums that incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk, and country. In 1989, after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success, she had a major hit with the album Nick of Time. The following two albums, Luck of the Draw (1991) and Longing in Their Hearts (1994), were also multimillion sellers, generating several hit singles, including "Something to Talk About", "Love Sneakin' Up on You", and the ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me" (with Bruce Hornsby on piano).
Raitt has received 10 Grammy Awards. She is listed as number 50 in Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time" and number 89 on the magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".
Here's the song "I'm In The Mood" performed live with John Lee Hooker. This song does a fabulous job showcasing Bonnie's exceptional guitar skills.
