Here’s something to talk about. The legendary singer Bonnie Raitt was born today. I’ll bet you didn’t know that in the mid-1980s, Bonnie Raitt recorded some music with Prince. The songs and album have never seen the light of day, but I’ve heard a few samples, confirming that the sessions actually did take place. The strange thing about the songs is that Prince was able to take Bonnie Raitt’s distinctive voice and backed with his funky music, he made her sound like one of his protégés. We can only hope that one day the songs will see a release, but I would not hold my breath, just in case.
