David Raitt Maine Line CD     on the Black Fly Tour 2013    

Reviews: There was a distinct ebb and flow to the evening, when I attended an evening of rock by the unforgettable David Raitt. To say that he is Bonnie Raitt’s brother is obligatory, but you really need to hear the man play. He is amazing. His bluesy rock comes across as nearly effortless.

“What a killer combo! Reunited for the first time since their high school blues band, Jimmy and my brother David notch each other up and have a blast doing it on this slammin’ record.  Jimmy’s always been one of the greatest blues guitarists and my brother David’s right up there with him on those kickin’ vocals.”                - Bonnie Raitt

David Raitt/Jimmy Thackery

That's It!
Blue Rock'It  Records                     

A marvelous soul vocalist, David Raitt teams up with guitar killer Jimmy Thackery on That's It! Reunited for the first time since their high school blues band, the two middle-aged blues hounds get down to business on rough Chicago-styled offerings like their original "Tell Me," Mack Rice's jivey classic "Cheaper to Keep Her," Roosevelt Sykes' "Driving Wheel" and the funky Michael Bloomfield-Nick Gravenities tune "Me" along with Stax/Volt-styled R&B fare like "I'd Rather Be Blind, Crippled and Crazy." Thackery is in particularly aggressive form on his slow blues "Watch Your Back" and on a raw, nasty rendition of Howlin' Wolf's "How Many More Years," on which he also summons up a most menacing Wolf imitation on vocals. And Raitt swoops and swoons like a sanctified canary throughout. These two make a formidable tag team of the blues.

That’s It is a recorded document of a very special friendship as well as a superb rhythm and blues recording in its own right.  I would not hesitate  recommending this recording to anyone who enjoys old fashioned R&B, flavored with a little taste of the blues.


David Raitt      Take a Chance   debut CD 

David first played bass with me when I started out years ago. He’s sat in on my shows on everything from harp to flute and congas. I’m so glad to finally be able to contribute something to his music. Bringing in our Dad and brother Steve so we could all do something together was so special. Thanks Dave.We had a blast. love,  Bonnie 

1996 Debut Solo Album with Garth Webber, Spencer Brewer, The New Mendocino All-Stars and David's brother, Steve, sister, Bonnie and father, John; Green Wave

The multifaceted  musician plays drums, bass, flute, guitar, harmonica and sings wonderfully on this treasure trove of 12 songs.   Hailing from beautiful Mendocino county, Raitt designs a mixture of country, blues, folk, rockabilly and west coast swing. It is apparent on this release that the Raitts believe in each others talent.  Bonnie’s exquisite bottle neck guitar is an integral piece in the sculpting of  David’s tune, Beans and Rice. Homeless illustrates his social consciousness.  Late For Me has a line dance feel and Too Hot urges a kick-up-the-heels-at-a-local-roadhouse attitude. The ballad Over Me conveys the value of compatibility and gentleness in relationships.  Skip, Laugh and Play is a hit-the-road, horseback-in-the-mountains kind of song. Spin Down the Road has an early Allman Brothers Band feel about it.                                       -Rock Love magazine

Yes, he’s the son of the Broadway musical legend, John Raitt. And yes, he’s the brother of the blues influenced star, Bonnie Raitt.  But that’s not the reason David Raitt is so alluring and captivating on his solo debut. This man has talent.        Review in JazzTimes by: Bill Milkowski 

My  Dad’s CD  with Bonnie is fantastic. -  david raitt
