Great performances from Paul Simon and the band, with decent (but certainly not great by blu ray standards) video quality. As already mentioned by others it is such a pity that there is not a high definition sound track, with only a LPCM stereo (16bit?) offering. Although this is pretty good, it does not provide the sparkle and greater insight provided by multi-channel 96Khz/24bit DTS-HD MA or Dolby TrueHD recordings. But the music is great.

If you are a Paul Simon fan then you will not be disappointed with this DVD. I think the range of songs on his You're The One DVD recorded in Paris is a lot wider and the multi-talented band comes across better. If you want all the Simon & Garfunkel hits go for the Simon & Garfunkel in Central Park or Old Friends DVDs. Having said that, this shows that Paul Simon never fails to please, his guitar work is outstanding (I have always felt he is one of the most under-rated guitarists). Very entertaining --- and that's what it's all about.

Can't say how the sound is in DVD. I have only the Blu Ray.
On Blu Ray my Sony bdp970 says "2 channel LPCM + DTS NEO 6.1" on screen when pushing the info button of players remote.
My Denon 9+1 receiver says that the sound is "7.1 line in stream", so my Sony player makes 7.1 digital LPCM stream of the only audio stream of the BRD, outputting it from HDMI output.
Ear on the loudspeakers one by one: all 7 speakers are producing sound as well as the subwoofer.
Sitting on the couch, listenig the concert: my ears say that the sound is one of the best sounds I ever heard! The sound is not so wide as on most DTS / DD -recordings (errors on phase...), allmost as narrow as on 2 channel CD, but VERY analytic and natural! Room is transmitted naturally from surround- and surround-back -speakers.
Sorry if my english is not absolutely correct, I`m "not an englishman in New York"...

The bluray disc is disapointing both in quality and content,pity about the songs and sound quality. The years have not been kind to Paul.

Paul has never been an artist were young teenagers has turned crazy in front of stage or outside his hotel! I will not suggest why, but he is an extremally gifted singer/songwriter for me. I have of course listened to all his music in radio and tellie, casettes or CDs, but never live. Because he is not used to play concerts in neither Europe, nor Norway?
So when I found this BD I ordered immediately. I was not turned down. From the first second I heard that mastering was fantastic, and it was for sure not old fashioned at all, his old repertoir of music was performed the modern way.
Fantastic experienced musicians, and Paul was so confident trough all of the concert. His music has got so nice rythm and is so soft that I had a wide smile from start to end. Like when my grandfather played music from his 1952 gramophone and mono amplifier equipment inside a huge furniture, with a big smile in his face and called it "this is really BIG music".
During the marvellous concert I had the pleasure of watching the musicians playing on other instruments than they normally did? Drummer 1 played slide guitar. Drummer 2 played washboard. 5 string base-player played drums. Guitarist played sax. Everytime I play this BD both me and my wife has a wonderful evening. Enjoy it!

The best music dvd i have seen so far.Paul Simon fans will love this as it displays the man at his best and reminds us of how great a musician he is.He has a great band behind him here and he is clearly enjoying himself,along with the very responsive audience.I have seen him live with Garfunkel and he does seem to play better on his own,as this performance demonstrates,probably as he can delve into his impressive body of solo work which displays his own individuality.Anyone hoping for a Simon and Garfunkel greatest hits concert will be disappointed as there was only one-The Sound Of Silence.However,for the Paul Simon connoisseur this wont be a problem as his solo work has far more range and depth to it-10/10.Enjoy.
