5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Simon at his best. 10 April 2003
By C. Bale
Format:Audio CD
Even the iritating out of time clapping and outbursts of cheering from the typically American audience cannot marr this classic album. Paul Simon and his backing musicians pull out all stops to deliver classic tracks such as "She moves on", "The river" and "The coast" (the live version simply has to be heard, it beats all other versions). Someone once said Paul Simon is the voice of loneliness. He is also the voice of genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable live Paul Simon CD of songs 16 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was from what I've heard and read one of the truly great concerts. The album captures the terrific music and brilliant atmosphere. This is definitley a Paul Simon album to buy. It is a two CD Box set and has many enjoyable songs from past albums such as Graceland,Paul Simon, Still Crazy After All These Years and many more. I also includes some brilliant songs from his days with Art Garfunkel. ex: Bridge Over Troubled Waters. I don't normally go for live albums but this is definitely an exception. If you like this I would also strongly recommend other albums such as Graceland,his greatest hits album Shining like a national guitar and his latest album You're The One. My personal favourites on this album are Old and the title track You're The One. In many ways this latest album is a return to the "old" Paul Simon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album...lots of energy! 20 July 2000
By Carol Alaniz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars ****1/2 - great live album and a fine career overview 12 Jun 2005
By Docendo Discimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Equipped with the unwieldy handle of "Paul Simon's Concert In The Park, August 15, 1991", this double CD finds Paul Simon backed by most of the New York session musicians and the native musicians from South Africa and Brazil who had accompanied him on "Graceland" and "The Rhythm Of The Saints".

Clocking in at almost two hours, "Concert In The Park" features excellent live versions of songs like "Graceland", "She Moves On", and "Me And Julio Down By The School Yard". Most of the arrangements stick close to the studio recordings, except for the fact that Simon has toned down the Brazilian percussion that dominated the "Saints" recordings, and re-done "Cecilia" African-style.
Paul Simon sings with style and conviction all the way through, and some of these songs are definitely better than the studio versions...just listen to the exquisite "Born At The Right Time" or the elegant "She Moves On".

The sound is very good, and "Concert" moves seamlessly between S&G-material and latter-day solo stuff. "Still Crazy After All These Years" has never sounded better, and the nine-minute "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes" is a real treat.
Paul Simon fans should enjoy this fine, mellow set, and there is a lot to like for casual listeners as well.
This show was filmed, by the way, and released by Warner Brothers. It's not yet available on DVD, but you can still find a copy of the original video casette.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Album 7 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul Simon may be shy but he still puts on a damn good show 20 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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"
