'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Bonnie Raitt and FriendsBonnie Raitt and Friends
Capitol Records - August 15th, 2006

Bonnie Raitt and Friends, the first ever CD/DVD release from the innovative concert series VH1 Classic Decades Rock Live!. This special release features live performances by Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones, Ben Harper, Alison Krauss and Keb’Mo’.

As my Grandpappy Cornbread would say, "shoe-eeh them are stars". Bonnie Raitt and Friends, which was recorded live at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ on September 30, 2005, will feature two hours never-before-seen concert and interview footage.

Raitt is a nine-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee. That ain’t nothing to sneeze at, neither is this CD. Personally, it’s my favorite Bonnie Raitt recording to date.

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.

Ciao’ for now, peace.
