EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded shortly after two years of intense touring, Dig in Deep captures the blues rock icon in peak form. On politically charged rocker “The Comin’ Round Is Going Through,” the only thing sharper than Raitt’s tongue is her slide playing. Channeling their inner Little Feat, her band show off their funky chops on a sensuously percussive rendition of INXS’ “Need You Tonight.” Certainly no stranger to singer/songwriter fare, Raitt takes her place at the piano for set closer “The Ones We Couldn’t Be,” one of the most emotionally naked tunes of her storied career.

Gypsy in me first single review

another classic Bonnie Raitt- foot tappin- soul shakin- blues funk- driving song. Its great to hear Bonnie sound so fresh and charged up, love that slide and ready to go, can't even count the years its been but man talk about creating such excellent music all these years... this has got a nice, radio edge, funky steam rolling along on this road trip nostalgia vibe... If you're a fan of the Raitt you will love this one, can't wait to hear all of these new tunes!

Superb new collection from a legend...

I've finally got to hear all this new stuff this week and man DIG IN DEEP covers so much territory, especially music that I've grown up with, Bonnie just nails everything on here, every one of these songs convey her emotional depth and range. Recorded with minimal studio "fixes", its real Roots music, Whether its the blues-rock(Gypsy in Me), Funk(Unintended consequense of love), Stonesy rock(The coming around is going through), Ballads(Undone, The one's we couldn't be) and textures of so many great styles(I knew) of R & B( and Soulful singer, just check out "Need you tonight" the 80's INXS hit, Bonnie just struts and oozes a sensual calling and that slide guitar just nails the grooves laid down here, its just mesmerizing soul and funk, you can't sit still listening to this one! Bonnie's vocals on Dig in Deep as well as this wonderful elastic band stretch these grooves into some of the very best of Raitt's career and must have adult music experience for the new year. Bonnie's written or co written 5 of these gems and you can tell how proud she is of this masterpiece and why she is so regarded in the fickle music industry. Give it some listens and feel the grooves, Bravo Bonnie for another classic recording, radio needs to play these songs!

Cannot wait!

I’m a huge fan of Bonnie’s music, style and enduring relevance to the blues. I love this song! I hope the album has the same vibe! I already have my seats for when Bonnie comes to Houston! Look for me Bonnie! I'll be the red-head in the front row!!!

About Bonnie Raitt

By the time Bonnie Raitt found worldwide success with 1989’s Nick of Time, the songwriter and master slide guitarist had already recorded 10 albums over two decades. A pioneering figure in roots rock who spent her early years apprenticing with bluesmen like Mississippi Fred McDowell, Raitt, who was born in Burbank, California, in 1949, seemed to have stepped out of an imagined past, synthesizing strains of blues, folk, rock, and country in ways that felt both effortless and fresh. She does it all on 1972’s Give It Up, which spans raucous New Orleans-style R&B (“Give It Up or Let Me Go”) and contemplative ballads (“Nothing Seems to Matter”), bare-bones blues (“Love Me Like a Man”) and string-heavy folk (“Too Long at the Fair”), with Raitt equally at home in each. She’s since left her mark on artists covering all sorts of terrain—from Susan Tedeschi and Joss Stone to Adele and Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard. Or, as blues legend B.B. King said of Raitt’s impact in one of his last interviews: “I came up in a macho world and never thought I’d ever declare the best living slide guitarist to be a woman. Well, I’m declaring.”
