PERFECT, after such a passionate, dark song by John Hiatt... Hard to beat the sultry wail of Bonnie's voice and guitar! She rocks live!

I'm lucky enough to have seen both Bonnie Raitt (at the old Wembley Stadium) and John Hiatt's Little Village project (at a much smaller stage at Crystal Palace Bowl)... now in the dim and distant past, not long after my 18th birthday.

I must say I prefer this song with Bonnie Raitt's absolutely brazen slide guitar work, but I prefer the proto-Little-Village version for its vocal work. 

So I am conflicted.

I like how he used the "soap" and "clean" play on words.  He did this in another song as well.

In Thing Called Love - "I ain't no icon carved out of soap, sent down here to clean up your reputation".

In Trudy and Dave - "They shot up an automatic teller machine / Took the money for the laundry and drove away clean"

I saw her for the second time at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in San Francisco a couple of weeks ago. Pretty amazing. The first time was with Randy Newman in Philadelphia (about 1973 or 1974) and based on her performance there, I had no sense of how good she is as a guitarist (recordings tend not to show things so clearly). Who are the other women who play sizzling lead guitar and also sing powerfully? Definitely worth seeing if the opportunity shows up. What struck me is that she seems to have 2 sides. One is a more or less traditional blues guitarist, where her skills really come through. Then she does the FM/AM radio type work. I much prefer the former, but she's the boss.

 
I have seen her with the wife a number of times, all good shows but very different and dependent on the venue.  Most surreal one was in Orange County in CA, don't remember the venue.  But I was one of the young folks in the crowd at the time and I was in my mid 40's at the time.   The other shows in the LA area I have seen I was about in the middle age wise, maybe trending toward the upper end.

Can't really think of anything. There may be someone out there who hates really cute dimples. Other than that, I got nothin...

I danced next to her in the late 70's in a bar in Mpls. Her brother was there. She sang a couple of songs with Willie and the Bees

Back to the trailer park with you!  You have wicked-poor taste.

Also, congratulations on being the only negative post in the thread. The hate is strong with you.
