Bonnie Raitt's new album: Dig In Deep

This week's feature is the new album by Bonnie Raitt:

Dig In Deep


What Raitt has done on her 20th album is go deep in the pocket, leaning on her gifts as a sensitive bandleader, bottleneck guitarist and producer, not to mention a paragon of modern blues expression.

Songs of Spring on Roots Rock Roadhouse

 

By ornaments entranced
We trace in frenzied dance
The patterns carved by chance
On the pavement of memory
Seasons turning yet again
The Mother's breast is full again
As in heaven, so with men
Is now and ever shall be
Till we come
Till we come again
To recognize renewal
At the heart
At the heart of us
Our eyes will touch life

---Burce Cockburn (Spring Song)
