The first time I listened to this album I was very dissapointed. At the time I bought this I was a fairly new Paul Simon fan and was not quite used to his shy voice. When I heard it I thought it took away from the intensity from such songs like "You Can Call Me Al", "Me and Juilo Down by the Schoolyard", "Late in the Evening" Etc. But after repeated listenings I slowly over the course of time began to enjoy it more and more. Then I was playing it more than any other cd I had. I enjoyed the percussion on this album more than anything else. Later on I bought the video to this concert. For anyone who enjoys the simon and garfunkel stuff more I would not recomend this because the Versions of "Bridge over Troubled Water and Ceceila" are totally different. Anyone who enjoyed Graceland or the Rthym of the Saints will love this. Buy this one now. Other Paul Simon titles I recomend are "You're the One", "Graceland", and "Live Rhymin"

I own almost all of Paul Simon's albums and this 2 CD set is the one I play the MOST. It has quite a few of the older songs that Simon is known for, arranged differently. 'Sound of Silence', the last song in the collection, is presented with only Paul on lead bass and S. African bassist Ray Phiri supporting. After years of hearing the other arrangement with Art G., this one sends chills up my back. 'The Boxer' is sung in a relaxed, laid back manner, but it is still a classic.
Among the other songs, the concert opens with 'The Obvious Child' and its pounding drums; a great opening song. Next up is 'The Boy in the Bubble' a real crowd pleaser. 'She Moves On' features jazzman Michael Brecker on sax. Other great songs are 'Hearts and Bones' and 'Late in the Evening', which will have you tapping your feet. Ladysmith Black Mambazo did not do the 'Born At the Right Time' tour of which this concert is a part. But, 'Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes', which they helped to make well known, is still a great song, it has a rousing ending with all the drums and percussion pieces.
The band behind Paul is awesome. Aside from Michael Brecker and Ray Phiri there's master drummer Steve Gadd and Richard Tee (now deceased) on keyboard, among others. Paul's voice is better on this album than on many previous ones, and the song order is just right, from up-tempo to slower tunes and back again.
The only criticism I have is that Paul was not more careful about post-production. He should have had more of the crowd noise deleted from the master tape, but he didn't. The noise was left in, and there is a bit too much of it. You can still hear the music very well, though.
This album is full of energy and is well worth the money. The compliation albums that came after this set are not as good as this one, that's why I play this the most.

Where to begin! Let me first say that I am a huge fan of Paul Simon, so I'm probably not the most objective opinion... That said, Paul Simon's Concert In The Park is my favorite CD for a couple reasons: It is a great introduction to Simon for those two people on earth unfamiliar with his work, and, more important, it offers brilliant renditions of both Simon's greatest hits from the Garfunkel years as well as new takes of his lesser known songs. I love the African and South American sounds Simon explores, I love the band that's behind him, but most of all, I loooove the music! Buy this CD--I promise you won't be sorry.
