Let's give 'em something to talk about on June 24.
That's when Capitol Records/UMe will release a special vinyl-only edition of Bonnie Raitt's classic Nick of Time album. The vinyl release celebrates the album's 25th anniversary.
The album was Raitt's tenth at the time and has become her signature, hallmark release. She released it after being dropped by WBR and after getting sober and healthy. So it was a watershed release for her and a true comeback and rebound, one that has stood the test of (and nick of) time.
All told, the album sold five million copies, topped the Billboard Top 200 and won the "Album of the Year" Grammy.
This anniversary edition was remastered from the original analog tapes, overseen by both the albums producer, Don Was and engineer Ed Cherney and is being released on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl.
"Personally, I think it may be the best record of my career," says Raitt. "Every record has its charm and its significance, but I think we finally got it right — I could finally say, 'Yeah, that's what I had in mind.' As a mixture of styles, reflected in one record, it was a really good version of what I do."
She continued, "It's a particularly great batch of songs and the synchronicity of finding these songs when I did—the emotional connection and the gratitude that I had to be given another shot—I think that shows. It was kismet to have it come out this well."
The album was a total comeback.
