This is likely the best place to start in Bonnie Raitt's catalogue. Fans of the 1990's hit making machine version of Raitt might find this album unrecognizable,but her blending of acoustic blues and folky singer-songwriter material would go on to inform most of the albums of her career. This is not only the strongest of her albums but it comes off as the most relaxed and effortless.
Songs like 'Women be Wise' and 'Mighty Tight Woman' are strong blues numbers that highlight her love affair with Sippie Wallace and 'Big Road' as well as 'Walking Blues' show that she is more than capable of handling the country blues giants (Tommy Johnson and Robert Johnson respectively) and making those songs her own.
The real highlight here is "Since I Fell for You", originally kind of a big band number performed with a masterfully understated vocal by Ella Johnson. The only thing Raitt would have been able to do to bring the song to life would be to sing her own pure and understated version and she has never sounded better. She hits notes that are all but forgotten in her range today, and she manages sound both vulnerable and knowing often in the same line.
This album is all upright pianos, acoustic guitars, and saxes and the blend proves to be the perfect backdrop for Raitt's fairly eclectic run of cover songs.
