Shawn Colvin Cover Girl (Columbia) On this collection of songs written by others — Bob Dylan, Sting, and Steve Earle among them — neo-folkie Colvin is an example of how too many performers embarrass themselves on open-mike night: Not everything needs ”interpreting.” Saving grace: ”One Cool Remove,” a duet with Mary-Chapin Carpenter.
