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.

On this Memorial Day, I'd like to share the lyrics to my song "A SOLDIER AT WAR", dedicated to all the soldiers from all the wars who DIDN'T die, all those who have been living with the internal scars of their war experience. My heart goes out to you all, and I certainly do appreciate your service to our country. Is this an "anti-war song"...YES! And I dedicate these lyrics to the great Ron Kovic, author of "Born On The Fourth Of July".

A SOLDIER AT WAR

VERSE 1:
I’m a soldier at war.
I know you’ve seen my face before.
I am Red, White, and Blue.
I am black and brown and yellow too.
I have killed and I have died,
All alone and damaged deep inside.
And the child I used to be,
Was sacrificed for some insanity.

VERSE 2:
Left a boy, now half a man,
My innocence was lost in a foreign land.
I fought so hard and I fought so long,
I fought for my country, right or wrong.
In the eye of the slaughter,
No Star Spangled Banner did I see.
There is blood on the water,
It’s flowing like the blood inside of me.

VERSE 3:
In smoke-fill rooms, the Men Of Might
Will send your son somewhere to fight.
And I am one of many more,
Just pawns in a Holy War.

BRIDGE:
In a field where the food used to grow,
There’s a murder of crows.

VERSE 4
Now the war is dead and gone,
But the battle goes on and on.
And the dream that used to be
Is buried so deep inside of me.
I believed what I was told,
But all that glitters is not gold.
I still see my brother’s hand…..
Why he died, I’ll never understand.

VERSE 5….REPRISE:
I’m a soldier at war.
I know you’ve seen my face before.
Just a name and a loaded gun,
One more lost, forsaken son.
I’m a soldier at war.
I’m a soldier at war….
Just a soldier at war.
