The booklet includes personnel information and track-by-track notes by Bonnie Raitt.
Bonnie Raitt is one of the most respected crossover blues performers of her generation. Even when she plays repertoire that falls into the pop category, Raitt never sways too far from her bluesy roots. Because of this, she has been widely embraced by both adult-contemporary audiences and hardcore blues fans.
This compilation shows Raitt prodigious musical growth throughout two decades, ending before NICK OF TIME (1989) and LUCK OF THE DRAW (1991). So if you're seeking the big hits, you'll have to look elsewhere; the two aforementioned albums contain her biggest radio singles, and none of that material is included here. However, this collection is a fabulous survey of Raitt's earlier career, beginning in 1971 and ending in 1986 with the vocalist/guitarist's NINE LIVES release. Many superb songs are heard here, including the reggae tune "True Love Is Hard to Find," the down-home blues number "Give It Up or Let Me Go," and the jazzy ballad "The Glow." Also included on this compilation is an excellent concert recording of Raitt's classic "Angel from Montgomery," featuring John Prine.
