Product Description

Amazon.com

Paul Simon's third solo album unifies the varied threads running through its predecessors--confessional ballads, wily story songs, agnostic spirituals and snapshots of modern life, circa 1975, are extensions of the models on his self-titled debut and--There Goes Rhymin' Simon. Here, Simon and producer Phil Ramone establish a more cohesive, explicitly urban setting that burnishes the artist's acoustic folk accents to spotlight his sophistication as an inventive composer and, as always, deft wordsmith. Included is his last great collaboration with Art Garfunkel, the bittersweet "My Little Town," a pop gospel romp with Phoebe Snow on "Gone at Last," and the sly adulterer's solution of "Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover" (arguably the antithesis of Willie Dixon's classic "29 Ways"), along with the tender "I Do It for Your Love" and the woozy, dissolute "Have a Good Time." Best of all, of course, is the brilliant title song, shifting from anecdotal verse to soaring bridge and colored by keening strings and Phil Woods's knowing tenor-sax solo. Simon was crazy, like a fox. --Sam Sutherland

Brilliant work. One of Rhymin' Simon's best.
It surely rocks in a very religious sense, with his foray into Gospel with Phoebe Snow and the Jesse Dixon Singers in the collaboration on "Gone At Last". It is gentle, in the teasing collaboration with Art Garfunkel in "My Little Town" and reflective in the title cut. I recall going to a Simon concert right when this came out, and the rumor here was that Art was going to show up in Dallas that very night! Of course, the same rumor spread through Boston the night before, Chicago the night before that, and every other town on that tour.
It is well advised to call this an "essential". It is. Simon's vocals have never sounded better. His song writing is at its thought provoking best. In the CD jukebox for the desert island, this must make the playlist!

As with the album released before this, "Rhyming Simon", this album represented Paul Simon's realization of his full abilities hinted at in previous albums both with Simon and Garfunkel and then as a solo artist. This album provocatively showcases Simon's unique talents and creative interests with an eclectic, wide-ranging, and gorgeously produced solo effort. From the haunting rhythms and wry lyrics of "Still Crazy After All These Years" to the tender and sensitive emotions expressed so well in "My Little Town" sung with Art Garfunkel", we sense more than a little autobiographical influence in all the songs. Simon's lyrical genius is displayed in spades here, from "Fifty Ways To Leave Your Lover" to "Have A Good Time " to the joyous "Gone At Last", sung with Phoebe Snow, and we can tell that this is an artist in full bloom and enjoying his singular ability to deliver a wide range of songs with a panorama of emotions and telling personal observations so artfully expressed that it is a wonder to listen to them. This is an album one must listen to appreciate, and the new directions Simon began with this album have now stretched out in a dozen or so albums and compilations. This is a terrific album for a man who had the courage and nerve to deliberately walk away from a phenomenally successful situation as half of Simon and Garfunkel to follow his own artistic heart. I highly recommend it. Enjoy!

In his book chronicling American life during the 1970s, David Frum charted the changing relationships between sexes, decay in city life, abandonment of religious and family traditions in search of self. He added that many luxuriated themselves in music from the decade's singer/songwriters, who emotionally summed the era's self-absorbtion.
Or, in Paul Simon's case, epitomised it. "Still Crazy..." is a snapshot of mid-70s, post-hippie urban life as vivid, detailed and episodic musically and lyrically as Simon & Garfunkel statements like "Bookends" were sweeping and anthemic. Such was the low-key prescence here that Simon, upon winning a 1976 Grammy award for his work, thanked recurrent winner Stevie Wonder for not releasing an LP that year.
For this project, Simon and producer Phil Ramone gathered the royalty of what, 15 years later, became "smooth jazz." Bob James arranged strings on several tracks. Percussionist Ralph McDonald and drummers Grady Tate and Steve Gadd (his drums kick-start "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover") turn in stellar work (McDonald later played on "Saturday Night Fever.") David Sanborn and Michael Brecker turn in fine sax solos. (Brecker, so say the liner notes, actually plays "Still Crazy" 's solo while Phil Woods contributed on the equally tasty "Have A Good Time.")
Atop this lush musical carpet, Simon laid restrained melodies and knotty vignettes on middle-aged urban life. "You're Kind" plays like a straight, dry love song until its punch line hits like a "Seinfeld" re-run. The black rainbow and deceased ballplayer in "My Little Town" and "Night Game," respectively, capture childhood's frozen, dashed dreams.

....the title track foreshadows Steely Dan's current "What a Shame About Me" as far as being a Noo Yawk, chance meeting with a star-crossed lover kinda thing, but the difference is that Simon's song narrator recalls things in a leisurely, fond, there's all the time in the world way. Fagen regrets to say, "Well, no, we're way too different, see ya maybe in another lifetime (like when I'm rich and successful like you)". Simon knows there's a difference, but to live these moments again, is rare indeed, let's try to savor this chance meeting...
Let's savor this chance meeting, let's break out the beers...
This is one of my favorite Paul Simon solo efforts because it still catches me reminescing good times. And I know I've said things like "the 70's were OK, but let's not try to live them again", but I can be forgiven for my transgression because this album is also one of the best all time recordings by anybody. I figure if you're gonna pay your heard earned money on something, you might as well get some of the best stuff out there.
Yeah, I still dig the top ten tune "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover", but I am also crazy about "Have a Good Time" with vocal backgrounds by one of my faves, Val Simpson. I recall reading a review in Time Magazine about the existentialism of the "My Little Town" reunion w/ Garfunkle and I recall thinking at that time, "What? Why ruin a good tune with overanalysis?" and now I find myself saying that again about my own review of this album.
It is good music, done well, and you won't ever regret buying it.
