Bonnie Raitt, 'Nick of Time' (1989)
Like John Hiatt's Bring the Family, Bonnie Raitt's Nick of Time marked both her first post-sobriety album and her biggest success to date. On top of her cover of Hiatt's "Thing Called Love," the record featured her signature blend of blues, country, soft rock, pop ballads, and even a bit of reggae on "Have a Heart." Polished but with maintaining a rootsy authenticity, Nick of Time caused a late-career boom for Raitt, going to No. 1 in 1990 and earning the veteran three Grammys – for best album and best female rock and best pop vocal performances.
