Editors’ Notes Recorded and released barely a year after his first solo album, 1973's There Goes Rhymin' Simon shows off the singer/songwriter's ability to pen lyrics that are equal parts uplifting and introspective. This duality is showcased from the get-go, with the swinging, feel-good opener, "Kodachrome," segueing into the reflective, melancholic "Tenderness." Simon's ability to switch between moods is boosted by his curiosity about other genres, exemplified here by the gospel-infused redemption of "Loves Me Like a Rock."
