 Notes & Reviews
Nothing but high praise for this CD and this musician. Superb!
- Glenn Elliott, 10/22/2012, USA

Bonnie Raitts new album SLIPSTREAM is daring, bluesy, and steeped with the inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals that could be only 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 Raitts longtime touring band, four of the albums songs were helmed by celebrated producer Joe Henry (Allen Toussaint, Solomon Burke) and showcase his crew of usual crew of extraordinary musicians. Additional guests include Bill Frisell, Al Anderson (formerly of NRBQ), Irelands Paul Brady, and Maia Sharp. The albums twelve tracks feature Raitts renditions of songs by such luminaries as Bob Dylan, Joe Henry, and Loudon Wainwright III. An updated, reggae-fied version of Gerry Raffertys 'Right Down the Line' leads the charge as the albums first single.
