Slipstream

Genre: Rock; Lead Performer: Bonnie Raitt; Music Label: Redwing Records

The singer’s best album since 1975’s underrated Home Plate is a mix of rock, blues, folk, and funk she might associate with her old pals Lowell George and Little Feat, and I’d associate with the beat and groove of the R&B classicists she belongs among. Her slide-guitar playing throughout Slipstream is superb, and she slips her purring voice into every song like a letter going into an envelope addressed just to you. A-

Best Tracks:
So-true ballad You Can't Fail Me Now
Redeemed Oldie Right Down the Line
