For a lot of people, Shawn Colvin is famous because of "Sunny Comes Home" from her "A Few Small Repairs" album. They probably don't realize that Shawn has a couple of albums prior to her break out album. I'm not exactly a big fan of Shawn Colvin, especially after hearing "Sunny Comes Home" a few million times on the radio. I find her music a bit too mellow and polished for my tastes. Still I do like some of her music and most of it comes from her second album "Fat City". I bought the cassette version of "Fat City" back in high school (or I think I was a freshman in college) because a local radio station played a few cuts off the cd and I liked what I heard. I particularly enjoyed the opening song "Polaroids", a poignant song about reminiscing about the good ol' days. The next two tracks I am not too wild about. I just didn't care for the melodies on those two songs. "Round of Blues" as is "Climb On (Back That's Strong)" is another great song off "Fat Song" but I think I have to say that "Orion in the Sky" is by far my favorite Shawn Colvin song. While there are a few hits and misses on "Fat City", it is still a solid album. Too bad that it was overlooked by the critics and music listeners.
