What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

Cover Girl / Shawn Colvin
Okay, what's with this Partial Album crap? What harm would it have done to include Killing The Blues along with the rest of the tracks? Or is it just an evil plot to make Apple charge $10.89 for an incomplete album, instead of the usual $9.99 for the whole thing?

Okay, rant over. (At least until my next entry.) Because whether complete or not, I love this album. Shawn Colvin's minimalist approach does wonders for the songs she covers here. Especially Every Little Thing (He) Does Is Magic, which she gives a breathy, slightly rushed and sexy delivery that Sting never managed. I liked it so much, I used that track on my first mix CD, which I've partially recreated as my very first iMix.

But I digress. (Big surprise, if you've spent any time here.) The point is that this is an experiment and something of a risk. Where Colvin's other albums show off her skill both as songwriter and performer, here her singing stands alone. And it does so gloriously.
