EDITORS’ NOTES

A jazz-pop sheen and genuine sense of reflection cut across Simon’s 1975 album. The lush title track and scatty wordplay of “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” find him documenting acute mid-life crises, while on “My Little Town” he and Art Garfunkel harmonize over a melancholy reminiscence of childhood.

I wish

This music was beautiful when it played on the raido in the early morning nice and low and I just wanted to stay in bed with this beautiful woman and feel good all day. Riverside Ca. 1976 Hi Cheri I have never forgot you.

Gone At Last Demo with Bette Midler!

This was a added gem! To hear the original version of "Gone At Last" that originally Paul wrote as a duet with Bette Midler! To hear the demo, just warned my heart! Love the version with Bette much better then the one he released with Miss Snow! It's a shame Bette and Paul could agree on the arrangement! Which was the reason he used Miss Snow instead!

A forgotten Clasic

I'd forgotten all about this great record. A true potpourri of themes and styles, all capped off with the killer duet with Phoebe Snow "Gone At Last." There's a reason this is the only record Simon's made that hit #1 and the Grammy the followed. Who else could have written such a beautiful ode to Yankee Stadium?
