music friday: bonnie and rosanne

Back in 1982, we saw Bonnie Raitt for the first time, with Rosanne Cash opening. Here are a few of my favorites of their songs. 

First, three from Bonnie Raitt. This is John Prine's "Angel from Montgomery", from 1976:

"I Can't Make You Love Me", from Luck of the Draw, the first album after Nick of Time and the one that was actually as good as people thought Nick of Time was:

And my all-time favorite Bonnie Raitt song, "Sweet and Shiny Eyes", from the underrated Home Plate:

And Rosanne Cash. First, probably my favorite of hers, "Seven Year Ache", from the album of the same name:

A song of her daddy's, "Tennessee Flat Top Box", from the album King's Record Shop:

And from The Wheel, her own "If There's a God on My Side":

Finally, just because, here is Tedeschi Trucks Band with a medley of "Angel from Montgomery" and "Sugaree":
