This is the first album by Bonnie Raitt. After
dropping out of college in 1969, she began playing on the US folk and
blues circuit, turning heads due to her ability - almost unique in a
white female - to play credible bottleneck guitar.
She became friendly
with many of the surviving blues legends, including Howlin' Wolf,
Mississippi Fred McDowell and particularly Sippie Wallace, with whom
she later recorded.
After paying her dues in clubs, she signed with a major record label
in 1971,when she released her eponymous debut album which included both
contemporary songs by Stephen Stills and Paul Siebel and a number of
blues covers, plus two selfpenned originals.
