5.0 out of 5 stars Simon At His Very Best Nov. 9 2000
Format:Audio CD
Paul Simon takes you on a musical journey through his S&G perenials, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Sounds Of Silence, Homeward Bound and America. As breathtakingly beautiful as Art Garfunkle's harmonies are, never once did I take notice of their absence. The solo material, Mother And Child Reunion, Loves Me Like A Rock, Duncan, American Tune and Me And Juilio all sound fresh vibrant and infinitly appealing. Most of all Simon has the artistic good sense of not trying to cookie-cut the sound of the orginally recordings, nor does he go out of his way to reinvent and rearrange them. The only exceptions being the beautiful vocal accompaniment and choral arrangement on Sounds Of Silence and Bridge Over Troubled Water.
As perhaps one of the greatest living American songwriters, (Dylan and Willie Nelson readily come to mind) Simon always delivers the goods. His studio albums have consistently been chuck full of wonderfully crafted, orginal and introspective compositions. This album offers the listener the delightful experience of hearing him at his playful and whimsical best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sing An American Tune Dec 1 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album in LP form back in 1975, and dug it out and listened to it today for probably the first time in 20 years. Although the record hasn't held up well, the music still astounds with its freshness and originality. Paul's collaboration here with the Incan group Urubamba shows he was playing "World Music" decades before it became the cool thing to do. His songs with the Jessy Dixon group similarly show him pioneering so-called "American Roots". And when he takes the stage alone with just his guitar, his presence and musicianship are breathtaking. "American Tune", written on the wreckage of Watergate, takes on a shattering new meaning in the wake of September 11th. I am amazed at how prescient these songs are. He recorded this album live in 1974, and by some strange trick of imagination and talent, the songs are still live and rhymin' today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simon Live May 31 2001
Format:Audio CD
Live Rhymin' is a very good live record from Paul Simon. He perfectly mixes songs from his first two solo album with songs from his Simon & Garfunkel days. The songs are done in mostly the folk-rock vein, but he does sprinkle in some nice instrumentation on the sweeping "El Condor Pasa (If I Could)" and the touching "Duncan" as well as gospel singers on "Love Me Like A Rock" & "Bridge Over Troubled Water". The latter song is quite interesting to hear as the original is a showcase for Art Garfunkel, but Mr. Simon's interpretation is strong. Other strong songs include "The Boxer", "America", "Mother & Child Reunion" & "American Tune".

By From the Musician's Pen TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First off, I love Paul Simon's music and already own many CD's (with and without Garfunkel). I bought this because was hoping to get the live versions of "Duncan" and "American Tune" that used to be on the discontinued Greatest Hits, etc. lp (that has never made it to CD), and thought they were taken from here. The version of "Duncan" IS from here, but "American Tune" is not... anyone know where that can be found?

In itself, that's not enough to justify my low rating. My complaints are as follows:
1) It's supposed to be a live Paul Simon concert but half the songs are from Simon & Garfunkel, done acoustically (but obviously without Garfunkel)... he already had other solo hits that could have been on here instead.
2) I'm sure the concert was at least twice as long as this CD... only 10 songs, plus a couple "bonus" songs... where are all the other songs from the concert? Even if the actual album that came out in the 1970's only had 10 songs, surely a complete and remastered concert could be put to CD by now?
3) Booklet is also very weak, just some pictures... does not even list the members of the band!

The performances are very good and the sound quality is also good. I got this CD at a rather cheap price so I'm glad about that. I just think that overall, as far as Paul Simon's output goes, this album/CD does not offer enough for most people to justify buying it.
