Release and reception[edit]

  • "unique in its active maturity, intelligence, and warmth. With Chris Smither's 'Love Me Like a Man' and Sippie Wallace's 'You Got to Know How,' she dares any crotch-rocker to match her sexual expertise. On Joel Zoss's 'Stayed Too Long at the Fair' and Jackson Browne's 'Under the Falling Sky,' she dares any sensitive type to wax lyrical without a drum kit. And on her own 'You Told Me Baby' and 'Nothing Seems to Matter,' she invites Lenny Welch to return the favor." → use your own words more foten it's giving a copyright violation
  • "Give It Up is not even close to being Bonnie Raitt's best-remembered, best selling, or most award winning album. It was, however, a stylistically eclectic collection that showed early in Raitt's career as a recording artist that she was a formidable vocal and instrumental talent, expressively as well as technically an important American artist. Because the styles of the arrangements and performances are so diverse and revolve around not trends but instead around tried-and-true classic American song styles, Give It Up remains enjoyable nearly 40 years after its initial release" → same as previous

  • AllMusic is not work but publisher, same goes for Rhino Entertainment


  • Fine


  • Needs chart and certification section.

@MarioSoulTruthFan: Alright, I believe I have taken care of all the issues you brought up. For the block quote I had in the reception section, I just ended up removing it as it said all of the same stuff that had already been mentioned. Famous Hobo (talk) 11:52, 6 April 2020 (UTC)
