Love and Affection

Here's something wonderful I had occasion to hear after working into the wee hours several nights in a row. I loved it years ago when it first was released. There have been a number of covers by well-known singers, but the artist sings it best.
"Born on the island of St. Kitts, British singer/songwriter Joan Armatrading was her country's first black woman to make commercial inroads into her chosen genre, spicing her take on folk with bits of soul and reggae."
She's still performing. Thought you might like it . . .

Have a great day!

  1. I was following the rabbit trails of JA videos, and I found a cover of "Love And Affection" by Jewel and Melissa Etheridge. I think it's very nicely done. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShwwOyRKfAI
