SHAWN COLVIN

A Few Small Repairs - Columbia Records 1996 - 6

This is certainly one for the discerning listener. Shawn Colvin is a folk/rock singer very akin to Suzanne Vega and this is a very personal view of the break-up of a relationship. As such it does get rather bogged down at times, but there are some highlights and it's well worth a listen if you are happy to sit with a lyric sheet in front of you. It does have one very attractive song "Wichita Skyline."
