AllMusic Review by

Before Shawn Colvin released Whole New Year in 2001, Borders offered an exclusive five-track sample of that LP with some rare live tracks. Included are the album versions of "Diamond in the Rough" and "Roger Wilco," which was co-written with Edie Brickell. The jewels of this budget CD are the two live tracks from hard-to-find KFOG live compilations. "Sunny Came Home" was recorded live at the Plant studio on September 10, 1996, and was included in KFOG Live From the Archives 5 and "Round of Blue" was recorded at the Warfield on October 29, 1994, and was part of KFOG Live From the Archives 2. Also included is the Talking Heads cover "This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)" originally on 1994's Cover Girl.
