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.
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.

What can I say? I am a huge Paul Simon fan. This is a must have along with any live concert albums that he has done. Read morePublished on Dec 23 2003 by Nerdgirl
