The blues artist estimates that she has guested on more than 100 songs. Her shortlist of the most unforgettable — with apologies to those left off the list.

“I’m in the Mood,” with John Lee Hooker (1989)
This collaboration won a Grammy for best traditional blues recording, but that’s not why it ranks among Raitt‘s favorites: “I shared musical heat with John Lee Hooker.”

“Someone To Love,” with Charles Brown (1992)
Her duet with the famed blues singer and pianist appeared on his eponymous album, Someone To Love. Raitt says, “I adored the man and miss him every day.”

“Hey There,” with John Raitt (1995)
One of three duets on her father’s Broadway Legend album, this show-tune cover from The Pajama Game is, in Raitt’s words, “a daddy-daughter moment to cherish forever.”
