5.0 out of 5 stars simon goes it alone, 29 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Paul Simon (Audio CD)
It seems incredible now but back in the sixties Paul Simon asked for eighteen quid a week to run a folk club in Barnet . The owners of the club rang Martin Carthy to ask his opinion . Barnet's loss was our gain . Simon went back to America and made some classic folky pop with his old schoolfriend Art Garfunkel . He then went it alone and reverted to the broad church of folk . This is his first album - the one where his face pokes out uncertainly from under the furry hood of a parka . The Radio2 playlist songs are Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard and Mother And Child Reunion . They are great but this album has many other treasures . Once he had left Garfunkel's angelic choirboy voice behind Simon was canny enough to surround himself with the cream of the World's session men and they provide the second focus of interest on the record . The pros from Dover do what they always do - plug in without fuss and play like angels . This still sounds as fresh as a daisy .
