BONNIE BRAMLETT (290)

Piece of My Heart: The Best Of Bonnie Bramlett 1969-1978 (RVCD-290)

Raven presents for the first time on CD, a definitive, 19-track compilation covering the career of one of rock music’s most respected female vocalists – BONNIE BRAMLETT. Culled from nine albums, recorded for Stax, Elektra, ATCO, Columbia, Capricorn, Piece of My Heart 1969-1978 features outstanding music and stunning vocal performances. With superb quality audio, colour booklet and detailed liner notes.

Bonnie first came to prominence as an Ikette before she teamed up with former Shindogs member Delaney Bramlett in the influential and highly regarded Delaney & Bonnie and Friends. “Delaney & Bonnie created some of the most distinctive and exciting music of the early ‘70s, equal parts blue-eyed soul, blues, country and gospel” – All Music Guide. Her sophisticated and confident vocals are heard on their best known songs ‘Piece of My Heart’, ‘Groupie (Superstar)’ and a hit cover of Dave Mason’s ‘Only You Know and I Know’.

After recording her solo debut Sweet Bonnie Bramlett (‘Able, Qualified and Ready’) she signed to the prestigious Capricorn imprint where producer Johnny Sandlin indulged her love of R&B, soul and gospel with the recording of two earthy and dynamic albums, It’s Time (‘Oncoming Traffic’) and Lady’s Choice (‘Forever Young’), cut with players from Macon, Georgia and Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Her third Capricorn album Memories yielded her passionate cover of Steve Winwood’s ‘Can’t Find My Way Home’. This collection features contributions from Duane Allman, Chuck Leavell, Gregg Allman, Eddie Hinton, Paul Hornsby, Barry Beckett, David Hood, Roger Hawkins, Ricky Hirsch, Lowell George, the Muscle Shoals Horn Section and the Average White Band (who backed her on Sweet Bonnie Bramlett).
