Paul Simon Live in New York Review
I’ll say it again. If you are a Paul Simon fan, this set is a must-have. (Check out the song list below.) I was playing it over here at my desk on my Bose Wave radio/CD player and WOW! This is one of those CDs that you can just put it on and let it go – every song is enjoyable. I even got James and Ryan into it. For my younger readers, sorry if I am showing my age here, but these songs stand the test of time and will always be classics to me. For a “senior artist”, Paul Simon’s voice is still amazing. And for a live recording? It’s an excellent production – the quality is wonderful.
About Paul Simon Live in New York City
PAUL SIMON LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY (Hear Music/Concord Music Group) recorded in superb high-definition by director Martyn Atkins along with sterling audio mixed by Phil Ramone and Andy Smith, will be available in three formats: 2-CD/1-DVD special package, Blu-Ray and Standard DVD.
The 20-song, 90minute set list was drawn from his legendary career and includes several songs that haven’t been performed live in many years. “Kodachrome,” “Mother and Child Reunion,” “Gone At Last” and “The Obvious Child” are just some of the highlights as well as songs from Simon’s most recent album, 2011’s So Beautiful or So What (Hear Music/Concord Music Group) including “Dazzling Blue,” “Rewrite,” “The Afterlife” and the album’s propulsive title track.
