Bonnie Raitt: Nick Of Time (Capitol LP/Cassette/CD)

Simon Witter, New Musical Express, 6 May 1989

NICK OF Time, the LA slide blues songstress' 10th album, is a peach and a half. Ripened to perfection through years of cultivation. There is a freshness of sound and soul here that's sure to shock anyone who expects slide blues to sound like some hoary roots pub music.
