Paul Simon "Live in 1974",
This review is from: Paul Simon In Concert: Live Rhymin' (Audio CD)
A great original live album available on C.D. with two extra tracks. Opens with a terrific version of "Me and Julio Down by the School Yard". There is a nice interchange of Simon and Garfunkel songs with Paul's solo work.The C.D. sounds fresh and has not aged at all over the years as it is great music.
There are reworkings of "Bridge over Troubled Water" and "Sounds of Silence" which feature the Jesse Dixon singers who are a gospel group who back Paul on the concert and they also take some of the verses to well known compositions that compliment the songs incredibly well.Its worth buying the C.D. just for these two tracks as they are really sung with feeling and you realize how great they are. There is a nice version of the "Mother and Child Reunion" hit from 1972.
If you are a fan of Paul's music then this is good addition to your collection.
