Product Description

Amazon.ca

Nick of Time is the watershed moment in Bonnie Raitt's recording career, the sound of a survivor finding new focus and purpose in her art after nearly 20 years of generally superb, commercially underachieving recordings. An exquisite interpretive singer and formidable guitarist who'd long ago honed her bluesy chops, Raitt raised the stakes by mixing the usual gourmet spread of smart cover choices with her own candid songs--and she knocked one over the fence with the opening track, the album's title song and a moving confession of a boomer's anxieties about age, death, and the impermanence of love. "Nick of Time" catapulted a feisty rock tomboy into a new station that made her as admired by female fans as the stage door johnnies who'd long loved her rock technique, and she covered the bet with other outside songs from John Hiatt ("Thing Called Love"), Bonnie Hayes ("Love Letter", "Have a Heart"), and Jerry L. Williams ("Real Man") that resonated with her persona as a tough, smart, but ultimately tender woman. --Sam Sutherland

After 20 years of cult status, Bonnie Raitt finally broke into the mainstream with this great album that shocked everyone, including Bonnie herself, by topping the album charts, going platinum and winning 4 Grammies! This was also the first of a trilogy of albums Bonnie recorded with Don Was at the helm. After numerous failures at contemporizing her sound, Bonnie finally created a slick record that held up better, and with Bonnie now in her 40s, a little smoothness may have been a good idea. The most famous song on here is probably the self-penned title track, which was the beginning of Bonnie discovering her own songwriting talent after spending years as the songwriter's voice. But she still has a keen eye for good material like John Hiatt's "Thing Called Love", Bonnie Hayes' "Love Letter" & "Have A Heart", and Mike Reid's "Too Soon To Tell" (from the guy who would eventually write "I Can't Make You Love Me"). At an age when most artists' better days will have already passed them by, this album proved that Bonnie's were just beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! March 18 2001
Format:Audio CD
Unless you were born after 1989 or else have dropped in from another planet since then, you have probably heard the song "Love Letter" from this album. It's only the most gritty, earthy, and outstanding torch song in rock. It was also the lead single from this album, and the rest of the album is no letdown. The songs here run the gamut from experienced toughness to aching vulnerability, hitting a lot of bases in between. Raitt's expressive singing and first-rate guitar playing take these quality songs and drive them home very effectively.
"Nick Of Time" dominated the Grammy awards and the charts in 1989, and rightfully so. It is one terrific album and earned Bonnie Raitt recognition that was long overdue. She labored long in relative obscurity before hitting it big with this one. Built on solid rock tinged with blues and country overtones, the songs here all feature mature lyrics delivered with real feeling. Listen to the title song. Nobody over thirty can fail to identify with those words. "Love Letter" is my personal favorite song, but I also especially like "Thing Called Love", "Cry On My Shoulder", "Nobody's Girl", "Have A Heart" and "I Will Not Be Denied".
This is a truly outstanding album. Give it a listen and I think you'll agree. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars RECOGNITION WELL DESERVED... Sept. 26 2000
Format:Audio CD
ON "NICK OF TIME", BONNIE RAITT FINDS THE CHORDS THAT FINALLY GOT HER A LOT OF RADIO AIRPLAY. BUT THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS, SHE HAS BEEN PUTTING OUT WONDERFUL MUSIC FOR YEARS. THIS ARTIST HAS PUT OUT ALBUMS BEFORE WITH MANY DIFFERENT FLAVORS AND STYLES, OBVIOUSLY ENJOYING THE CHALLENGE. BUT HERE ON "NICK OF TIME", ALL OF HER STYLES ARE REPRESENTED. THE BEAUTIFUL BALLADS, THE BLUESY ROCK NUMBERS AND COMBINATIONS OF THE TWO. SHE HAS PUT OUT SOME GREAT ALBUMS SINCE AS WELL!!! MY FAVORITES HERE WOULD BE "NICK OF TIME", "THING CALLED LOVE" AND "HAVE A HEART". COMMENTS WELCOME AT nick82e@hotmail.com

3.0 out of 5 stars Some great songs/Some safe for the supermarket July 23 2002
Format:Audio CD
The beginning of this recording is not promising, the title track sounds like the worst of soft rock, safe for any supermarket. There are a number of songs that follow this format, ("Cry on my Shoulder," "Have a Heart" "Too Soon to Tell") but the good stuff compensates for the dross. John Hiatt's "Thing Called Love" gets a great work out, and Jerry Williams's contributions ("Real Man," "I Will not be Denied") let Bonnie show she's no softy. Not quite a balanced work, but the good songs make it worthwhile and when Bonnie gets motivated with that slide, a good time is guaranteed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album Jan. 30 2001
Format:Audio CD
I had heard the name Bonnie Raitt before, but wasn't familiar with her stuff at all. Then a few years ago, I saw her video for "Have a Heart" and loved the song. That was my introduction to her...I bought this album, and since then I have bought a few of her other albums too. This is one of those albums that is great from start to finish, not one song that could be called 'filler'. Bonnie can do rock 'n' blues as well as Clapton. She's great...if you love blues rock with a touch of country, you will love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential Blues Rock Cd July 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Nick Of Time by Bonnie Raitt is probibly one of the essential blues-rock cd's of all time. Songs such as Thing Called Love and Love Letter draw a perfect line between blues and rock. meanwhile songs such as Have A Heart and Nick Of Time are perfect along side hits by Michael Bolton and Gloria Estefan on easy listening radio. and theres even some folkish/country style songs on there too. In short a great Cd. One that deserved it's Grammy for album of the year (it won in 1990 for the music of 1989)

5.0 out of 5 stars bonnie kicks ass!! Sept. 14 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
another of my US road trip albums, "A thing called love" + "love letter" being 2 of my fave tracks. "have a heart" is a pretty song, with a catchy sound. "nobody's girl" is a sensitive spot in this album, "the roads my middle name" is absolutely smokin'!" with it's bb king blues sound. the title track is is sad but very human. overall, on the same par with "luck of the draw" - a great album.
