Nick of Time not only was an artistic comeback for Bonnie Raitt; it brought her largest audience yet, so there was no reason to mess with success for its sequel, Luck of the Draw. And sequel is the appropriate word, since Luck of the Draw is nothing if it isn't Nick of Time, Pt. 2. True, there's a heavier reliance on original material this time around, but the sound and feel of the record is identical to its predecessor…
Bonnie Bramlett is the name of one of the single most revered female Blues/Soul/Rock vocalists in music history. Bonnie began her career with the Iketttes, backing Ike & Tina Turner, before gaining international fame with her husband as half of Delaney and Bonnie, the first white group to be signed to the legendary Stax label. Her later solo work included fine recordings with The Average White Band as well as acclaimed acting work in major Hollywood movies. Today the voice that has been called "the greatest white female R&B voice to emerge from rock music" is still piping through vocal chords that have transcended musical styles and genres. With the release of I Can Laugh About It Now, Bonnie reclaims the spotlight. The album features a fine collection of selected covers such as Stephen Stills' 'Love The One You're With' and the Sam Cooke classic A Change Is Gonna Come, a tear-jerkin'-heart-breakin' version of Love Hurts as well as Bramlett originals like the album title track (co-written with daughter Bekka) and 'Gotcha'.

Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. We'd hate to get caught in the force of a baritone explosion – as the horns are so big, that's a lot of metal to have to deal with! Fortunately, pianist Rein De Graaf's got the proceedings here on rock-solid territory – providing just the right sort of swing to keep things moving, yet also keep things in control – while both Ronnie Cuber and Nick Brigola open up on the bigger horns – reminding us why they're some of the few players able to carry forward the deftly soulful legacies of earlier baritone greats like Pepper Adams or Serge Chaloff! The album's a live one, and tracks are nice and long – plenty of room for solos on titles that include "Caravan", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "Crack Down", "Night In Tunisia", and "Blue Train" – plus two short beautiful ballads, "What's New" and "In A Sentimental Mood".
With a killer leading couple of Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland fresh from their box office triumph co-starring in Klute and a soundtrack by the Electric Flag s Mike Bloomfield and Nick Gravenites with performances by Paul Butterfield and Maria Muldaur you would think that the 1972 film Steelyard Blues would be better known than it is. A long-lost underground soundtrack gem!
Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett assembled an all-star group of "friends" in 1969 for a weeklong tour of England, a legendary excursion that would produce On Tour With Eric Clapton, one of rock's most powerful and enduring live albums. Clocking in at a mere 40 minutes, the original left fans wanting more for decades. THE WAIT IS OVER - Rhino Handmade delivers with a four-disc deluxe reissue expanded with more than three hours of unreleased roof-raising, hickory-smoked rock 'n' soul. The set, which comes packaged in a mock road case, contains Delaney & Bonnie & Friends' complete performance at London's Royal Albert Hall, plus a composite of the next night's performances at Colston Hall in Bristol, and both the early and late shows from the tour's final stop at Fairfield Halls in Croydon. Along with the Bramletts, the touring band showcased on these discs includes guitarists Eric Clapton and Dave Mason, bassist Carl Radle, drummer Jim Gordon, organist Bobby Whitlock, Jim Price and Bobby Keys on horns, percussionist Tex Johnson, and singer Rita Coolidge.
"Party of One" is an album by English singer-songwriter Nick Lowe. Produced by Dave Edmunds, it was released in 1990 by Reprise Records and reissued with altered cover art and two bonus tracks in 1995 by Upstart Records. "Party of One" is one of only two Nick Lowe solo albums with no cover songs, as it is made up entirely of songs written or co-written by Lowe (the other album is 1982's "Nick the Knife").
