Paul Simon Youtube

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel inspired many pop and folk singers to run out and buy an acoustic guitar. To watch Paul Simon develop as a musician over the years is a music lesson in itself.  Graceland, the song has possibly one of the best lyric lines ever “the Mississipi Delta is shinng like a National Guitar”. 


 
The Boxer is no doubt a masterpiece for its poetry and simplicity. I first heard this tune in1970 or 1971, and I still am stopped in my tracks when I hear it

Credit where it’s due, Paul Simon has helped shape contemporary music.  Lefty by Art Garfunkel is one of my all time favourite vocal albums, I’m surprised it never had massive success.

    Thanks for the feedback and you’re pretty lucky to have been there. Music has that knack of sending us back in time.

    Unfortunately I’m not sure what else is available from that concert.
