It's not often that an artist makes the album of her lifetime almost two decades into a legendary career. But for Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt, that's exactly what happened with 1989's Nick of Time. After building a loyal audience in the '70s and '80s through tireless touring and nine critically acclaimed records, Raitt teamed up with a new label (Capitol Records, home of the Beatles and Frank Sinatra) and a new producer (Don Was, who has since worked with the likes of Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones).

The result was Nick of Time, an album that gave voice to a rarely-heard adult female sensibility, and perfectly married Raitt's blues roots to a sound encompassing rock, pop, and R&B that managed to be both sophisticated and funky. The title song in particular marked a breakthrough for Raitt; "I was touched by a friend’s dilemma, running out of time to have a child," she says, "and the whole subject of aging hadn’t really been written about in pop songs." The bold new direction of Nick of Time opened the door to a whole new fan base for Raitt— the New York Times called the song "the artistic peak in a career of unusual integrity," and it remains a radio staple to this day. "In many ways," she says, "this song changed my life."
 
From first listen, it was apparent that Nick of Time was something special, but when it won three trophies at 1990's Grammy awards - for Album of the Year, Best Female Rock Vocal, and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance - it turned into a phenomenon. Within weeks after the awards, the album shot to Number One on the Billboard charts, and went on to sell more than five million copies, establishing Bonnie Raitt as the superstar her fans always knew she deserved to be. Now, for the first time, Nick of Time has been remixed for Surround Sound and released on DVD-Audio, adding new sonic richness to this modern classic. -- Alan Light
