Bonnie Raitt

November 8, 1949, Burbank, CA

Long a critic's darling, singer/guitarist Bonnie Raitt did not begin to win the comparable commercial success due her until the release of the aptly titled 1989 blockbuster Nick of Time; her tenth album, it rocketed her into the mainstream consciousness nearly two decades after she first committed her unique blend of blues, rock, and R&B to vinyl. ~ Allmusic: Bonnie Raitt ~ retrieved March 14, 2014 © Allmusic
