Bonnie Raitt Dig In Deep is the 20th and latest album by this lady of the blues. Twelve tracks of great songs, five of which are written by Ms Raitts herself. There’s plenty of slide guitar on this album too, and I love me some slide. My favourite track on here is ‘The Ones We Couldn’t Be’ which is one of the self penned songs. It’s almost just her and a piano and you need to be sure to have the tissues handy.

It’s not all sad songs though, far from it, there’s some real funky tunes on here given the Bonnie Raitts unique treatment. INXS (who were they?)’Need You Tonight’ as well as a rollicking version of Los Lobos’s ‘Shakin Shakin Shakes’.
The album also features some of the most personal songs she has ever covered.

After losing so many of her close family members over a short period of time, her mother, father and brother, ‘All Alone With Something To Say’ was one of the songs inspired by her loss.

Recorded with her touring band, she’s been touring almost non-stop for the past two years, stopping only to go into the studio to record this album. It captures the live energy of a band that’s constantly on the road. She really seems to have dug very deep to make this album, and you can tell her experience as a blues singer/ performer shines through like those blues legends that have gone before her. A great album in my opinion and well worth buying.

If you missed her last tour, fear not, she has already set off on her latest epic world trip, so keep your eyes open. If you need anymore details, you can visit her website here. Bonnie Raitt
