I remember learning to play this song on piano while listening to an old show tape from one of her shows in the 80s. My dad had a hot rod portable tape player that would let you adjust the speed of playback, and I recall I did just that so that it would play back in an easier key for me to play in. :) Man, that was almost 25 years ago. Bon, here's to you and my dad spending another 25 years together, doing what you do. Thanks for everything you've given to us, and to the whole world.

Goddamn I love Bonnie.

harp playing is great. This is a 10 here

This improves my opinion of the original (and my desire to hear it).

Good cover of a Del Shannon classic.

I just had to crank this up....... my god she's great!

A really fun change from shopping online for dishwashers! Go Bonnie!

I see that I had rated this only a seven - what was I thinking? Clearly a nine- I'm clicking through to Amazon and buying this now!

I was 10. Del Shannon's original grabbed me in a place I'd never been grabbed, and I was addicted to rock'n'roll till the end of me time. Oddly, never got a chance to play it in a band ("that old thing") until my mid-'40s, and the Bonnie Raitt version at that. Still, I get goosebumps at the sound of Al Caiola's deep, dark, mysterious A-minor chord, Max Crook's Musitron break, and Shannon's caterwauling "Why? Why? Why? She ran away..."

I second that!! Another great song from this wonderful album.

Oooh, I like this right away. An easy 7 before I even finish listening. The harp break is tasty.

This is a very groovy cover! I like it...

In contrast to a couple of posts below, I think Bonnie's very early and most recent stuff is far less commercially-oriented that stuff she did in the (?) late 70s and early 80s. Saw her a few years ago, and her voice is just as clear and strong as it is on this recording.

What a voice!

I dunno, I can't help but respect Bonnie Raitt, but I feel she's capable of so much better. Her early material was incredible, but this and so much that I've heard later just seems like underwhelming commercial pap.
Also, I like a well-done cover, but I actually would rather listen to the original on this one.

Move over Del, Bonnie's here!

She does a very good version of this tune - her voice sounds fantastic. I still prefer Del Shannon's original classic, but that will probably never be heard here.
I feel the same way. She has such a powerful, clean voice. I have always liked this remake. Isn't Del Shannon on RP though?

Ms Raitt has always seemed superfluous to requirements. Her performance of this song does nothing to change that impression.

This makes a nice change from the seriously overplayed (on FM) original, and IMO refreshes it.
