2. Unnecessarily Mercenary (featuring Jon Cleary,
who co-wrote this song)
3. I Will Not Be Broken
4. God Was In The Water
5. Gnawin’ On It
6. You (featuring Alison Krauss)

This is a doozy of a CD/DVD combo – talk about
big band, I mean big bang for your buck. This is a
great CD, again my favorite Bonnie Raitt CD to date.
With Christmas coming this would make a great little
stocking stuffer for the music lover on your list.
