Bonnie Raitt returned to the studio in 2012 with producer Joe Henry, a singer-songwriter known for his earthy stamp on albums by veterans such as Solomon Burke and Bettye LaVette. Four songs from those sessions, elegiac ballads that include two Bob Dylan covers, landed on Raitt’s album, Slipstream.
