If you've heard other stuff by Shawn Colvin you'll know that she has amazing summery sounding guitar fuelled songs. This album is mostly acoustic based which I think suits her style of voice best. The songs have a sparse and raw feel to them which compliments the choice of cover versions well.
Although covers can be misguided, this album proves that addage wrong; every track on here is stunningly beautiful and sung with tenderness and emotion.
A truly beautiful album.

Believe it or not, Shawn Colvin started out playing hard rock with her own group, the Shawn Colvin Band in Illinois. But the music played havoc with her voice. Then she ended up in the Dixie Diesels, a Western swing band in Texas. By the early 1980s she had moved to New York and was writing and singing folks songs there and in Boston, when she was not appearing in off Broadway shows like "Pump Boys and Dinettes" and "Lie of the Mind." By 1987 she was singing backup on Suzanne Vega's hit song "Luka" and a year later paired up with John Leventhal, writing the lyrics to his melodies. A decade later we get to her big album "A Few Small Repairs," with the hit single "Sunny Came Home," which won Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
The 1994 album "Cover Girl" is actually a look backwards in Colvin's ascent on the music scene. When Colvin first started working the folk circuit in Greenwich Village in the early 1980s she would take rock songs and turn them into tunes she could play and sing on her guitar, such as "Every Little Thing [He] Does Is Magic" by the Police and "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" by the Talking Heads. Of course, when she was signed to a recording contract Colvin focused on her original material. But the generation of music lovers weaned on MTV's "Unplugged" are more amenable to hearing covers of familiar songs done in interesting ways, which justifies this effort. This is not to say that everything here is a radical interpretation of the text, because that would certainly not apply to Dylan's "You're Going to Make Me Lonesome When You Go." The only problem is that the best songs on the album are ones that are not mainstream works and it is hard to appreciate a cover song if you do not know the original (e.g.

Shawn Colvin chose a good selection of songs, most of which I would otherwise be unfamiliar with. Perhaps, because of that, they come across as being her own. I originally bought the single "One Cool Remove" when it came out but decided to buy the album as it was going cheap. It turned out to be a true bargain.
