Back in the 70's, Paul Simon created a variety of successful LP's that would later prove to be the foundation to his master piece of the 80's...Graceland. This remastered version contains two bonus tracks. The previously unreleased demo of Slip Slidin' Away which was released a year later as a single beoming another top twn hit for Simon. The other bonus track is the original Calypso demo of Gone At Last credited here only as Jesse Dixon Singers when in fact, Bette Midler's voice is clearly dueting with Paul here! Of course the late great Phoebe Snow had the gospel version hit with Paul, also included here. Sounding better than ever! Other highlights include the reunied Simon & Garfunkel My Little Town, the title track and the classic 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover.

Not his best album, but has a few of his best songs! Plus, even the least of his songs has value. True fans like me will want everything he has released, but if you're not a die-hard, there are several best of releases that will suffice.

After Paul's PAUL SIMON, this album, and RHYMIN SIMON, there is a distinctive falling off as he ventured into new territory,including the now trendy "world" music. Still, his first three must be the finest initial releases of any big name 60's folk/rocker going solo, including John and the other more famous Paul. All are very high quality, probably masterpieces by a lesser talent. How could anyone not enjoy STILL CRAZY and MY LITTLE TOWN, the latter the perfect 1970's song version of 1930's Babbitt!? 50 WAYS is still a lot of fun, but I would bet Paul was listening to some 1940's Louis Jordan before writing it,so similar are they in theme and humor. And SILENT EYES is another beautiful and meaningful ballad by Paul, the likes of which may have disappeared in his later work...My "Star" ratings here for Mr. Simon may be tough, but again perhaps the top artists may get a slightly harsher review. Anyway, every song here is worthwhile, and it just borders 5-stars for me!!!

The title says it all, and I agree with Mr. Simon, I am not afraid of death either, i just don't want to be there when it happens.

Yes,Paul Simon is still successful,by himself,after all those years since his musical partnership with Art Garfunkel dissolved. Don't worry,their friendship never was severed. Hits from this album include the title track,50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER,HAVE A GOOD TIME and MY LITTLE TOWN with Garfunkel. All but the latter appeared on NEGOTIATIONS AND LOVE SONGS 1971-1986,released in 1988. MLT also appeared on Garfunkel's 1975 album,BREAKAWAY. Also,MLT was reportedly the first Simon & Garfunkel recording since they recorded their BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER album in 1969. I guess the reason MLT didn't appear on N&LS was because it was Simon's album. The other songs are good.
