Shawn Colvin is no stranger to a good cover. She's sung the songs of other writers throughout her career, even finding space for Warren Zevon's "Tenderness on the Block" on her 1992 breakthrough Fat City, but she hasn't devoted an entire album to covers since 1994's Grammy-nominated Cover Girl. Arriving 21 years after that album, Uncovered feels slightly spare and quiet in comparison -- there are no productions as bright and full as that on "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" -- but it follows the same basic formula as that album, with Colvin finding the quiet, intimate heart lying in each of these songs. She returns to a few of her favorite writers -- the first single pulled from Uncovered was "Hold On," and Tom Waits isn't the only repeated songsmith; she also repeats Robbie Robertson, reviving "Acadian Driftwood" this time around -- but casts her net a little wider than such expected celebrated singer/songwriters as Paul Simon, John Fogerty, Robert Earl Keen, Jr., Bruce Springsteen, and Neil Finn, finding room for Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street," Stevie Wonder's "Heaven Is Ten Zillion Light Years Away," and Brenton Wood's classic '60s soul tune "Gimme a Little Sign," here performed as a duet with Marc Cohn. These slightly left-of-center choices illustrate the sly inventiveness of Colvin's interpretations, how she can retain the melody and emotion of the tune while shaping it to fit her gentle touch, and if this skill isn't forceful, it's nevertheless satisfying and deceptively sturdy, sounding stronger with each subsequent play.

Paul McCartney in 10 Solo Albums

With 60 gold records, Paul McCartney is one of the most gifted songwriters in the history of pop music. Now that he’s approaching his 80th birthday (after 60 years of writing hit after hit), Qobuz looks back on his post-Beatles years, exploring his huge discography and highlighting the top 10 essential albums.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

Guns N' Roses, the greed justifies the means

As the sales of the legendary Appetite For Destruction approach the 20 million copies in the United States, who remembers today that it almost never saw the light of day? Not only the bonds uniting Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler were fragile, but fate seemed set against this band which seemed to be slow to catch on to Mötley Crüe, Ratt, Cinderella or Dokken. This is almost as a kindness that David Geffen had accepted to welcome this homeless band on his label. He would not regret his altruism…
