Bonnie Raitt - Sweet Foregiveness

Bonnie Raitt - with Sweet Forgiveness.  Her 6th album, from 1977.  Bill Payne plays on it and a guy named Freebo plays bass on it.  Had never heard of him so I looked him up on wiki.  "Freebo is a bass and tuba player, guitarist, singer, songwriter, and producer noted primarily for his work withBonnie Raitt. He is also a respected session musician who has recorded and performed with Ringo Starr,John Mayall, John Hall, Aaron Neville, Dr. John, Willy DeVille, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Maria Muldaur, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, and many others.  His long collaboration with Raitt began when he attracted Raitt's attention as a member of Philadelphia's Edison Electric Band in the 1960s. Freebo was soon in great demand for studio work and touring.  In recent years, he has recorded four solo albums: The End Of The Beginning (1999), Dog People (2002),Before The Separation (2006), and Something to Believe (2011).

    Freebo often plays a fretless bass with Bonnie.
