From a review: “This has Bonnie sounding oh so sweet and hot at the tender young age of 22. Vocally she is hitting some high notes that only a young gal can hit and she easily keeps up with the fast company she is with! This is the first time that she and Lowell ever played together! One thing I really like about this is that it’s acoustic for the most part, and there is some cool banter while tuning up from an admittedly stoned Bonnie. While this technically is a Bonnie Raitt show, it’s the symbiosis of the players here who all get plenty of space to step up, and they all do. “

The first ever Bonnie Raitt bootleg, released in 1980, many years before she became an international star. Probably, also pressed in a small run of 300 only, so quite hard to find.
