Green Light (Bonnie Raitt album). Green Light is the eighth album by Bonnie Raitt, released in 1982. What I wanted this time out was a combination of the music I've been listening to recently," Raitt said in 1982, "Billy Burnette, the Blasters, Rockpile, and the rock-a-billy New Wave scene. I was a little stung by the lack of response to The Glow.

Bonnie Raitt ‎– Green Light. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album.

This bothered many listeners, who chose to concentrate on the surface instead of the substance, but Raitt retained many of the same special qualities she demonstrated on those records into the '80s - namely, her excellent taste in material, fondness for blurring folk, blues, country, and rock, and her wonderfully subtle, always engaging, interpretations. Green Lights may suffer a bit from a production that clearly pegs it as a 1982 release, but strip away its production and it's yet another satisfying collection of roots-rockers and bluesy ballads from the always reliable Raitt.

Bonnie Raitt is the self-titled debut album by Bonnie Raitt, released in 1971. A straight-blues affair, it was recorded at an empty summer camp on Enchanted Island, about 30 miles west of Minneapolis on Lake Minnetonka. We recorded live on four tracks because we wanted a more spontaneous and natural feeling in the music", Raitt wrote in the album's liner notes, "a feeling often sacrificed when the musicians know they can overdub their part on a separate track until it's perfect.

The good news first: Bonnie Raitt plays more guitar on Green Light than on any album in years, the band boasts a live feel that makes the rock & roll cuts really kick, and the record contains one of Raitt’s very best performances. Eric Kaz’ River of Tears begins with a majestic, rolling hook uncannily reminiscent of the Rolling Stones’ Tumbling Dice, while the lovelorn lyrics stir Raitt’s singing to a passionate yearning. She’s joined on the choruses by Richard Manuel’s urgent harmonies, and her own spicy slide-guitar playing adds snap.

In 1989 after several years of critical acclaim but little commercial success she had a major return to public prominence with the release of her album Nick of Time.
