From a review: “This has Bonnie sounding oh so sweet and hot at the tender young age of 22. Vocally she is hitting some high notes that only a young gal can hit and she easily keeps up with the fast company she is with! This is the first time that she and Lowell ever played together! One thing I really like about this is that it’s acoustic for the most part, and there is some cool banter while tuning up from an admittedly stoned Bonnie. While this technically is a Bonnie Raitt show, it’s the symbiosis of the players here who all get plenty of space to step up, and they all do. “

***

The first ever Bonnie Raitt bootleg, released in 1980, many years before she became an international star. Probably, also pressed in a small run of 300 only, so quite hard to find.

Bonnie’s Pride and Joy does not encourage or condone the manufacture of bootleg recordings. They are illegal and artists do not receive royalties from their sale. However, Bonnie’s Pride and Joy realizes that there are fans who collect these recordings. In that spirit, information about them is provided for fans’ research and guidance purposes. I don’t sell, trade or provide free copies of bootleg recordings nor can I tell you how to obtain them.

We are rocked to the core to hear of the passing of our dear friend, bandmate and musical genius, Mike Finnigan. He fought his long illness with the same fearlessness and ferocity he brought to every part of his life. Our deepest condolences go out to Candy, Kelly, Bridget and all his family.

Mike was one of the most powerful, virtuosic soul/gospel/blues singers and Hammond B3 players you’ll ever be blessed to hear. Respected and emulated by musicians the world over, his legacy of staggering
performances across his 60+ years career will stand the test of time. He stopped our show nearly every night. There was simply no one like him.

He was whipsmart, incredibly articulate and funny as hell. He was as devoted to his beloved family and friends as he was to helping so many struggling to get and stay sober. He and his wife Candy were instrumental in my own sobriety and I will be forever grateful.

Rest in peace, dear Mike. I know you’ll be shaking that Heavenly Choir to new heights as only you can do.

Here’s a clip from our 2013 Slipstream tour, where he tore up the place every night with Ray Charles’ iconic “I’ve Got News for You.”
