On the lucky seventh episode of My Favorite Album, host Jeremy Dylan is joined by singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Sam Hawksley (Adam Brand, The Sunny Cowgirls) to discuss Shawn Colvin's Grammy-winning 1996 breakthrough album “A Few Small Repairs”.
Along the way, they break down classic tracks Sunny Came Home, Wichita Skyline and If I Were Brave, wonder whether the album should be co-credited to John Leventhal, getting personal through abstraction and why you should be afraid if Sam likes your music.
