Bonnie Raitt – Live at Montreux 1977

on July 3, 2019 Comments Off on Bonnie Raitt – Live at Montreux 1977

Appearing at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival in 1977, Bonnie Raitt had been supporting her release SWEET FORGIVENESS, which featured her first charting single, a cover of Del Shannon’s “Runaway”, which would peak at #57 on the Billboard Pop charts.

Although it would still be 12 years before she became a national star, this 1977 show proves she was no stranger to the Blues community, pulling selections from her 6 albums at that point. This performance offers a rare glimpse at Bonnie Raitt years before she became the darling of the music industry.

Also included is a taste of her 1991 performance at the Festival, which features a performance of “Three Time Loser” from the aforementioned SWEET FORGIVENESS album, along with “Good Man, Good Woman” and “Papa Come Quick” from her 1991 effort LUCK OF THE DRAW.
