Great concert sound and footage....

by (jeff) on 8/30/2006

Bought this the day it came out and can't get over just how awesome the sound is on this, especially the surround sound DVD. WOW!! Bonnie has such an outstanding band of players surrounding her, everything just feels so funky and soulful, the guests never overbearing just compliment these wonderful songs. Especially love hearing "YOU" with Allison Krauus on vocals and fiddle,& "Papa come quick" - Ben Harper and Bonnie on their slide guitars, "Well, Well, Well" and "Two lights" highlights - Nora Jones, what can you say, she just shines on both numbers she sings on with Bonnie. "Tennesee Waltz" is a great duet they came up with to sing together- and Keb Moe and Bonnie just so funky on the rocking "Love Letter" and "Ain't no getting over you", musical heaven and finally Bonnie and her band featuring one of the greatest keyboard wiz's from England through New Orleans Jon Cleary, just an amazing performer dish out the spice that makes the going Raitt such a showman, she just keeps amazing as she matures.

Painting the lily

I can't add to what everyone else here has said in praise of this CD/DVD from Bonnie Raitt and her wonderful friends. I wish only that I had known about this when it came out two years ago. It'll be nice when DVDs can be played on CD players, because I'd love to hear ALL the cuts from the DVD while driving my car! (But one tiny criticism, and this is for the designer of the package: what's with the cheezy cover layout? I'm going to create my own cover and toss the other. It does Bonnie et al. absolutely no honor whatsoever.) Read More

Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Norah Jones, Ben Harper.
This CD/DVD release presents a 2005 concert by Bonnie Raitt in which the revered blues-rock singer/guitarist is joined by a number of high-profile guests. Although the audio portion of the set features fewer tracks than its visual companion, the CD still makes room for appearances by Alison Krauss (the delicate "You"), Ben Harper (the slightly funky "Two Lights in the Nighttime"), and Norah Jones (the gentle "I Don't Want Anything to Change"). One of the most notable highlights of the show, however, is Raitt's duet with her own band's keyboardist/vocalist Jon Cleary on the playful "Unnecessarily Mercenary," which allows Raitt to alternate her stinging six-string lines with groove-laden riffing, and match her wonderfully raspy voice with the soulful singing of Cleary. Also boasting a number of stellar Raitt solo tracks woven into the set list (including the beautifully atmospheric "God Was in the Water"), this offering is a must-have for her devoted fans, and its appeal is only widened by the presence of her well-selected collaborators.
Artist Bio
Bonnie RaittMore than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. The release of Souls Alike, her eighteenth album, marks yet another brave, exhilarating step in a legendary body of work.Born to a musical family, the nine-time Grammy winner is the daughter of celebrated Broadway singer John Raitt (Carousel, Oklahoma!, The Pajama Game) and accomplished pianist/singer Marge Goddard. She was raised in Los Angeles in a climate of respect for the arts, Quaker traditions, and a commitment to social activism. A Stella guitar given to her as a Christmas present launched Bonnie on her creative journey at the age of eight. While growing up, though passionate about music from the start, she never considered that it would play a greater role than as one of her many growing interests.Bonnie continues to use her influence to affect the way music is perceived and appreciated in the world. In 1988, she co-founded the Rhythm and Blues Foundation, which works to improve royalties, financial conditions, and recognition for a whole generation of R&B pioneers to whom she feels we owe so much. In 1995, she initiated the Bonnie Raitt Guitar Project with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, currently running in 200 clubs around the world, to encourage underprivileged youth to play music as budgets for music instruction in the schools run dry.Her commitment to the redemptive power of music is expressed in the foreword she wrote to American Roots, the book based on 2001's PBS series of the same name:"I feel strongly that this appreciation needs to be out there so that black, Latino and all kids can understand the roots of their own musical heritage," she explains. "The consolidation of the music business has made it difficult to encourage styles like the blues, all of which deserve to be celebrated as part of our most treasured national resources."
