Lowell George Tribute, 1979

It’s not everyday you see two of rock’s best and brightest together onstage, coming together like the perfect storm – but that’s exactly what the crowd at a tribute concert for the late Lowell George received in 1979 when America’s sweetheart Linda Ronstadt was joined onstage by Bonnie Raitt for a powerhouse performance of ‘I’m Blowin’ Away’! Written by songwriter Eric Kaz, ‘I’m Blowin’ Away’ saw the royal treatment when both Bonnie and Linda recorded it in 1975 and 1978 respectively.

Where Bonnie’s rendition is all quiet soul, Linda’s meets hers right in the middle with her unique brand of country-rock flavor, and when brought together as in this exclusive 1979 performance, it’s an emotionally charged experience that fans that night were undoubtedly blown away by.

Fun Fact: In 2014, Bonnie Raitt was part of a tribute to Linda Ronstadt in honor of her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

What a powerhouse performance from these two legends! Bonnie and Linda are absolutely electrifying together, the perfect blend of rock and a little bit of soul; we’re so glad that this footage exists, and we’re sure you’ll love it just as much as we do!

+ I’m Blowing Away lyrics +

I’ve been romanced dined and danced
Crazy nights and wild times
But my life has lost its mystery
Love is blind and it cannot find me

I’m blowing away
Shadows take my love and leave
I’m blowing away
Shadows keep taking my love and leaving me

And I have cast aside my foolish pride
And I’m going down for the last time
And I have searched this earth
And I’ve sailed these seas
Love is blind and it cannot find me
