Bonnie Raitt Tackles Gerry Rafferty & Bob Dylan In Latest Album, Slipstream


It has been seven years since the last album release from Bonnie Raitt. On April 10th, fans will be able to get their hands on Slipstream. The album is true to it’s name. It slips between folk, reggae, pop and rock & roll. Slipstream also marks the launch of Bonnie’s own label, Redwing Records.

Gerry Rafferty fans will recognize the first single off the album. It is a cover of “Right Down the Line,” the only Rafferty song to hit number one in the charts. Under Bonnie’s direction, the song gets a reggae tone and feel.


Two songs off Bob Dylan’s Time Out of Mind album are also featured on Slipstream. Bonnie’s treatment of “Million Miles” is a deep blues jam session that easily could have been the first single off the album. “Standing in the Doorway” has the same blue feel with western flairs in Bonnie’s guitar playing.
