Happy Birthday to Paul Simon, one of the great songwriters of the pop era and one of the great wig wearers too.
Despite knowing and liking many individual songs I had never deliberately listened to one of his records until this week. After watching the doc about Bridge over troubled water I gave the album a go.
I could happily never hear the title song ever again but what an incredible run of songs:
Keep the customer satisfied
So long, Frank Lloyd Wright
The only living boy in New York
An amazing run of form.
Why do so many American albums of that era sound like they were recorded down a well?
Your recommendations for further listening please?
