5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great singer-songwriters in the English Language, 18 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Essential Paul Simon (Audio CD)
I have been listening to the music of Paul Simon since i can remember.
What you get here is not a rebel, a follower of trends, a commercial artist or a controversial one.
What we get with Paul simon is some of the most beautiful songs ever in the English Language, performed with the respect they deserve.
As one part of the duo Simon and Garfunkel, Paul Simon wrote : The Boxer, sounds of silence, Bridge over Troubled water and Mrs Robinson to name a few.
What strikes me as a surprise in this collection is how several of the songs here are of the same quality if not superior to the above.
ie American Tune, Slip Slidin away, Still crazy after all these years, Kodachrome, Gone at Last, The Boy in the Bubble.

It is true that many people consider Paul Simon to be a great Lyricist-which of course he is. But the diversity of the music here is mouth watering. Gospel, Salsa, Folk, Rock, Rock and Roll, Soweto,Jazz....

A truly gifted singer-songwriter who cares and respects his audience.

These CDs are great for personal listening, parties, or the car. CD one contains such remarkable Gospel Music, it would be o.k for believers to skip Church on a Sunday.
Superb!
