Product Description


As its title makes clear, the 1991 sequel to Bonnie Raitt's platinum breakthrough on Nick Of Time takes nothing for granted. Raitt had achieved sobriety, renewed commercial focus, and then the payday that the prior album yielded, but Luck Of The Draw mirrors an even fiercer determination to make music as if her life depended on it. Again teamed with producer Don Was, Raitt surpasses herself with her best album to date: her wonderfully lush, blues-rimmed voice and sinuous slide guitar wrap themselves around a dozen potent songs culled from a typically shrewd mix of writers including Paul Brady, John Hiatt, Bonnie Hayes, Shirley Eikhard, and Billy Vera, and Raitt herself turns in her most generous batch of originals yet. Sympathetic guests include Brady and Delbert McClinton on harmony vocals, Richard Thompson on guitar, and Heartbreaker Benmont Tench on organ, in a program including the sassy "Something to Talk About," the sultry "Slow Ride," a soaring "Not the Only One," and the heartbreaking "I Can't Make You Love Me." This isn't luck, it's artistry. --Sam Sutherland

5.0 out of 5 stars one long slow sweet ride! Sept. 8 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first listened to this album on a road trip 'cross USA so everytime I play it now, it takes me back there, evoking the sights, smells, sounds of then. Two fave tracks being "tangled & dark" + "slow ride"
previous to this, I knew very little of Bonnie or her music, now i'm a true fan.
"I can't make you love me" is truly one of the greatest songs ever written.
"come to me" (a catchy ,slightly reggaeish beat) & "not the only one" two great upbeat songs that are i think in a similar vein.
"jodi & chico" is a great fun break from the norm.
& the final "all at once" has beautiful heartfelt lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Adult Rock.... Oct. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is Bonnie Raitts most fully realized collection as it
had everything going for it at the time. Great songs, video
exposure and all the Grammy wins added up to the most sucessful
comeback in many many years. Bonnie has gone on to make many more great collections but this one came of off the heals of NICK OF TIME and sold millions. From start to finish everything
Adult music lovers have come to love about Bonnie Raitt. You don't need to be over 45 to recognize how brilliant this one was!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great music April 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Unless you absolutely cringe to even the slightest twang of a slide guitar, you will love this CD. I used to hate country music but received this CD when I forgot to return my Columbia House card one month. I opened it thinking it was something else and was stuck with it, so I gave it a listen. At the time, I listened primarily to 1980's hair metal bands and Top 40 music, and I hadn't even heard Bonnie Raitt's name before. But after 2 spins of this CD, I was hooked.
Bonnie's voice is powerful and rich. The songs are true to the heart and the soul. Need to relax? Listen to this. Need to feel better? Just listen. Want to feel sorry for yourself? Grab a beer and wallow in the Luck of the Draw.
I recommend this disc for anyone with a heartbeat. It will beat a little healthier after making a connection wtih Bonnie Raitt.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! Feb. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
Without a doubt, this is the finest record Bonnie ever put out. From "I Can't Make You Love Me" to Slow Ride and Tangled And Dark, this record has something for everyone. She really caught my attention with this record. Great spin!

4.0 out of 5 stars The essence of Bonnie Raitt Aug. 21 2002
Format:Audio CD
From the "wink and a smile" attitude of "Something to Talk About" to the wistful acceptance of "All at Once," this one captures the essence of Bonnie Raitt. A great collection of up-tempo cuts and emotional ballads ably supported by Raitt's expressive vocals. Raitt has excellent accompaniment throughout the CD, with particularly strong support from Delbert McClinton on the raucous "Good Man, Good Woman." Occasionally marred by overproduction, ("I Can't Make You Love Me" would have benefited from a more stark setting. It is more effective live.) but you would be hard pressed to find a better showcase of Raitt's talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one! Aug. 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
This one deserves 10 stars not 5! It is definately Bonnie's #1! I have had this one since it came out! The same year I got my beautiful red haired daughter. What a year that was! I love this album and I play it all the time. I love Jody and Chico! I have'nt heard her new one YET! but If it's anything like Luck Of The Draw lookout 'cause it's gonna be fantastic! She most assuredly deserves credits and praise with this one! Bonnie at her finest!

I would like to say how great this company was about notifying me that they received my order and my CD was shipped the next day to me first class. I received it in three days. I would definately recommend ordering from edtac56, as their service and their merchandise is tops. (My order was "Luck of the Draw" Bonnie Raitt)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Bonnie Raitt May 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
Ms. Raitt's voice makes you want to listen and dance. This album, with each song a work of art, lives up to her body of work. Really wonderful music.
