This Saturday evening on the Blues, February 11th at 11pm, some of my favorite lovey-dovey songs from some of my favorite musicians.  The show starts off with Leon Russell's, "A Song for You," followed by Shemekia Copeland, Etta James' famous "At Last," and Leonard Cohen performing "I'm Your Man."

Peter Frampton starts off the second set which also includes Diana Krall's, "Peel Me a Grape," and the classic Miles Davis tune, "My Funny Valentine."  

This was a fun show to put together since I enjoyed listening to lots of favorites this morning.  It was hard to narrow down the songs to share for this lovey-dovey edition of The Blues.  But, we'll start off with one of my favorites from back in the day, Leon Russell's "A Song For You," from his self-titled album on Shelter Records.  That's followed by Shemekia Copeland's, "Happy Valentine's Day," Etta James' classic "At Last," and then Leonard Cohen, "I'm Your Man."
