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

Jackson Browne ~ Lives In The Balance (1986) ~ Ranked #88 Rolling Stone 100 Best Albums Of The Eighties in 1990 ~ Lives In The Balance never achieved the commercial success of some of Browne's earlier records. That hardly mattered to him. “I like this album as much as any I've ever done,” Browne said. “And there's a certain comfort, a security that I have, talking about something that I feel this strongly about. And whether or not an album succeeds wildly or not, that's intact.” ~ 1990 © Rolling Stone
