EDITORS’ NOTES

At just 21 years of age, Bonnie Raitt had the good sense to record her debut album live to four-track at an empty summer camp on Lake Minnetonka. By doing so, she gave listeners a sense of her amazingly composed guitar and vocal skills. Raitt’s equally capable of tender folk and raunchy blues. In fact, her two originals—“Thank You” and “Finest Lovin’ Man”—hold their own right alongside Paul Siebel’s gentle “Any Day Woman,” Stephen Stills’ classic “Bluebird,” and the open wound that is Robert Johnson’s “Walking Blues.”
