Bonnie Raitt Part Two

Bonnie Raitt Part Two

I wasn’t sure if I should do this one,Bonnie Raitt Part Two yet, without doing Part Three tomorrow. However if I wasn’t going to do this one, then I should I do Part Three, without Part Two. People would laugh at me, thinking why put out Part Three without Part Two. So I decided to have Part Two, so nobody can laugh at me. (You can laugh ate me, but I can’t hear it, unless you live by me).

Tongue And Groove And Release From Warner Brothers

In 1983, as Raitt was finishing work on her follow-up album, entitled Tongue and Groove, Warner Brothers cleaned house, dropping a number of major artists such as Van Morrison and Arlo Guthrie from their roster. The day after mastering was completed on Tongue & Groove, the record label dropped Raitt also.

In 1971, Seger released his first solo album, the all-acoustic Brand New Morning. The album was a commercial failure and led to Seger‘s departure from Capitol Records.
