Bonnie Raitt and Friends

Wednesday, August 16, 2006



Less than a year after VH1 Classic debuted “Decades Rock Live!”, the network breaks new ground with the first-ever CD/DVD release from the innovative concert series. VH1 Classic Decades Rock Live! Presents Bonnie Raitt and Friends Featuring Norah Jones, Ben Harper, Alison Krauss and Keb’Mo’ will be released by Capitol Records on August 15th.

This live concert series pairs celebrated artists of rock and roll with some of today’s hottest recording acts who have been influenced and inspired by these legends. Raitt was among the all-star artist line-up for the first season of “Decades Rock Live!” and the first episode of the series to air on VH1 Classic. The Decades Rock Live! television series from which the CD/DVD originates is created by Barry Summers, Executive Producer for World Productions, LLC. The CD/DVD is the result of a collaborative effort by World Productions, Capitol Records and Bonnie Raitt with the strong support of VH1 Classic. Now the nine-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has been selected as the inaugural artist for the companion series of CD/DVD releases.

Bonnie Raitt and Friends, which was recorded live at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, NJ on September 30, 2005, will feature never-before-seen performance and interview footage, including four duets not included in the VH1 Classic broadcast of the concert. With two hours of concert and interview footage, the concert which was filmed in Hi-Definition and is presented in 5.1 audio, features Raitt performing 17 songs with her longtime band – George Marinelli (guitar), James “Hutch” Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums) and Jon Cleary (keyboards). Included are such classic Raitt hits as “Something To Talk About,” “Love Letter” (with Mo’), “You” (with Krauss) and a knock-out encore of “Love Sneakin’ Up On You” with Raitt, Jones, Harper, Krauss and Mo’ as well as highlights from her latest studio album, Souls Alike, including “I Will Not Be Broken,” “God Was In The Water”, “I Don’t Want Anything To Change” (with Jones) and “Unnecessarily Mercenary” (a duet with keyboardist Cleary, who wrote the song). The accompanying CD features 11 tracks, including the radio single “Two Lights In The Nighttime” (featuring Ben Harper). Full track listings for the CD and the DVD are included below.

Souls Alike debuted at #19 on the Billboard 200 last September and Raitt has been on the road almost ever since. After a four month theatre tour of the U.S. and five weeks in Europe, she’s back on the road this summer and through the fall with Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/guitarist Keb’Mo’ for another 50 dates.
