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. C+ --Alanna Nash
