It must have been fairly nerve racking to follow the huge success of Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water with a solo venture.
But Paul Simon’s 1972 solo debut is a far more modest affair, and all the better for it. It was recorded with an eclectic crew of players, including jazzmen Stephane Grappelli, Jerry Hahn, and Ron Carter, and Simon was happy to offer up different musical palettes.
The reggae-styled Mother And Child Reunion and Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard, two particular high points, have an up tempo charm, but there are many other moods here. All in all, a very varied album, and one of Simon’s best.
