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.

Eric Clapton, one of the world’s pre-eminent blues/rock guitarists, once again summoned an all-star team of six-string heroes for his fifth Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2019. Held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, the two-day concert event raised funds for the Crossroads Centre in Antigua, the chemical dependency treatment and education facility that Clapton founded in 1998.
Raitt contributed to a new album, If You're Going To The City: A Tribute To Mose Allison, which celebrates the late singer and pianist, who famously blended the rough-edged blues of the Mississippi Delta with the 1950s jazz of New York City.
NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro talks to Bonnie Raitt about her friendship with the Mose Allison. They're also joined by Amy Allison — his daughter, who executive produced the album — about selecting an unexpected list of artists to contribute songs to the album.
Recorded on tour June 3, 2017 - Centennial Hall, London - Ontario Canada
