Bonnie Raitt • Runaway

Bonnie Raitt covers "Runaway", the big hit for Del Shannon in 1961. Raitt is performing on the legendary 'The Midnight Special' in 1977. The song was included on Bonnie's album 'Sweet Forgiveness'. That was the first Raitt album I purchased for my collection. There were more to come... When released as a single, the cover made it to #57 on the Billboard Hot 100. This is Bonnie Raitt singing "Runaway" live.

While I loved this song and album, it wasn't until 12 years later than Raitt found great mainstream success. In 1989, she released 'Nick of Time', which took the world by storm. It was a brilliant album! You can purchase 'Sweet Forgiveness' from iTunes and Amazon. For more about Bonnie Raitt, visit her official website. You can also 'follow' her on Twitter, and 'like' her on Facebook.
