Raitt,Bonnie ~ Luck Of The Draw


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

Looking back over the years at all the best records(cd's) of
Bonnie Raitt's long and enduring career as a singer/guitarist/writer/activist "LUCK OF THE DRAW" is a stand
out. Everything had just come together for Raitt, the Grammy's
showered on her not only fortune and fame but long sought after
credibility(with the public) and her new label Capitol spent the money to make
the money! The time was taken to make sure all those honors
weren't just a fluke but actually a Raitt reawakening to the
talents that lied within. Being sober and committed and using
some of the best talents in the business Bonnie was able to
help co-produce along with Don Was a very respectable follow-
up to "Nick of time". Every song here just oozes with feeling
and Bonnie is in an unstoppable groove and having now sold over
7 millions copies it is understandable just why it went on to
be so popular. "Something to talk about" and "I can't make you
love me", both were the sought after songs Bonnie has been trying to lay down for to many years ago to mention. The timing
was right as well for Bonnie's non-pretentious sound and voice
to hit in America. Adult Comtemporary and Adult Alternative radio station's impact and of course VH1 VIDEO SUPPORT,put her right into America's heartland where so many woman identified with all
her heartbreaking, blues sorrow and...rock blues style and many guys just couldn't believe a women could be such an aggressive slide guitar stylist. It all worked to perfection. The rock blues of "Slow Ride", The country rock blues bounce of "Good Man", the reality
of "All at once", the FUNK of "Tangled and Dark" spelled out a
rare musical talent that had just been tapped.

What can one say about Bonnie that has not already been said? She is an amazing writer, producer, and guitar player whose voice always touches you. Bonnie oozes pain and passion with each breath-sadness and strength with each note. She takes you to the highest peak and brings you down into the abyss.
Six words: 'I Can't Make You Love Me.' Bonnie realizes what many women just can't-they can't make someone's heart feel something that it won't. When I first heard this song, I was completely mesmerized. Goose pimples covered my skin, my body stood still as her cool pain-drenched voice bled with agony. Even after a few years, my heart skips a beat each time I hear the opening notes to this melodic masterpiece.
'Let's Give Them Something To Talk About.' This is a cheeky tune about gossiping, nosy and rumor-spreading individuals. The upbeat melody is a finger-snapping, foot-tapping gem. Bonnie voice is gritty but pretty as usual-this one's a definite keeper.
'Not The Only One.' To her surprise she's not! Bonnie's smooth vocal delivery and upbeat melody make this tune one of my favorites on the entire album.
Pick this one up as well as her other recordings-She'll never disappoint.

After the 4 Grammy triumph of NICK OF TIME, Bonnie Raitt proved her newfound success was for real by creating an even better follow-up. This time, Bonnie contributed 4 original songs, all of which were great, including "One Part Be My Lover", written with her then-husband, actor Michael O'Keefe. This album also contained her first top 10 pop hit with "Something To Talk About". Also, there was another one of Bonnie's greatest performances on the heartbreaking "I Can't Make You Love Me", written by country songwriter Mike Reid, and featuring Bruce Hornsby on piano. Bonnie also turns to Paul Brady ("Not The Only One"), John Hiatt ("No Business"), and Delbert McClinton ("Good Man, Good Woman") for help on this album that even though it only reached #2 on the charts (unlike NICK OF TIME, which took a year to reach the top) was no less a triumph than its predecessor.

"Something to Talk About" was a big enough hit that this album got the attention of people who weren't familiar with Bonnie Raitt. If you don't know who she is, listen to "I can't make you love me" which just gets to me every time I listen to it.
Raitt's voice has fascinating purrs, growls and soaring tones. Her guitar playing is outstanding and her style defies classification. For example if you like Country you'd probably like her, but if you hate Country music you'd also like her. Go figure.
Bonnie Raitt is one of the most talented singer/songwriter/guitarists ever and why she isn't a bigger mega-star than she is just amazes me. She was the headline performer at our college homecoming in 1970 and she is still going strong strong strong. If you don't have any of her albums, this one is a sure winner to start with. Not a bad song in the bunch.

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.
