Synopsis

Amazon.com
Following her first three albums, all of which were wildly eclectic affairs, Bonnie Raitt was poised for a mainstream move, and 1974's Streetlights is it. There's no blues edge here whatsoever, and Raitt's guitar playing is subdued--both detractions--but the album also introduces "Angel from Montgomery," the definitive version of John Prine's piercing ballad. Raitt dips further into contemporary singer-songwriter fare with Joni Mitchell's "That Song About the Midway" and James Taylor's "Rainy Day Man," but the album peaks with Allen Toussaint's thoughtful (and funky) "What Is Success." --Daniel Durchholz

Fabulous Bonnie

(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the 70's, the album "Streetlights" was my introduction to Bonnie Raitt. At the time I was living in Minneapolis. I was browsing in a record store and this album just happened to be playing. I was actually looking for another album, but the music really caught my ear, so I asked the clerk who the singer was. He showed me the album and I purchased this album on the spot! I have been a fan of Bonnie Raitt ever since. Since I also sing, I could appreciate a great performance. All the numbers are great, but if I were forced to select my favorites, it would be "Angel From Montgomery" and "Rainy Day Man". Bonnie cannot be categorized into a particular genre. She appeals to a cross section of fans! If you haven't heard this album/cd, it will be a real treat! Right on Bonnie! Keep us humming, singing along and dancing!"
