My Favorite Albums, Of All Time!

July 10th, 2010 . by Alexander Fisher

ShawnColvin-AFewSmallRepairs Recently I have said several times that a certain album is one of my favorite of all time. I thought that maybe I should make a list so that I (and others) didn’t think I was just making it all up as I went along.

I thought my first attempt at a favorite album of all time list would be a top ten list. Then I went for top twenty, etc. I soon discovered that unless I went to a top fifty, I wasn’t happy with the contents. The only criteria I used was that the album couldn’t be a compilation of greatest hits. Live albums were OK.

I have said many times that Shawn Colvin’sA Few Small Repairs” is my favorite album of all time. I still agree with that.
