Bonnie Raitt

Max Bell, New Musical Express, 3 April 1976

AT FIRST SIGHT, Bonnie Raitt isn't the world's most startling human being. In fact, she seems pretty damn ordinary. Quiet; medium height; plain; unkempt red hair – the only noticeable thing about her appearance as she dredges her nth scotch is an impressively deep cleavage, which averts the incautious gaze momentarily before a very gruff vocal drawl snaps you to attention.

Total word count of piece: 1829
