Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Chas Turner
In keeping with the straightforward ethic on the identically titled album, the You're the One: In Concert from Paris DVD is a no-frills rendering of Simon's subtle, assured concert persona. Performing over two nights in the City of Light, Simon cannily balances the show by juxtaposing some old Simon and Garfunkel chestnuts ("I Am a Rock," "Homeward Bound") and early solo hits (the ageless "Kodachrome", "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover") with six tracks from the newest album. These shows perfectly capture Simon's method of letting the song and the words speak for themselves -- sans pyrotechnics, stage wires, dancing, or flashy lights. His profound, always poetic, occasionally anecdotal lyrics and knack for blending in Third World musical styles with rootsy American cadences make for a mellow, fairly timeless experience. This disc is a testament to Simon's essential modesty and songcraft, which have endured despite five decades of show business and, most recently, an ambitious Broadway show (Songs from the Capeman) that closed quickly after mixed reviews and nasty publicity.

I like this DVD because it shows how Paul looked and sounded in 2000. To me, his voice sounds lower than it was in 1991, but that's just me. I recommend this DVD to Paul Simon fans.

Paul Simon has long been a trail-blazer on the concert stage - whether it's in front of over 100 thousand people in Central Park or our nations capital building, or fighting to get through protestors in South Africa - Paul brings with him his wonderful gift of musical mastery where ever he goes. This concert performance took place in the more intimate setting of the Olympia theater in Paris. Paul opens the same way as he does on his new CD with ''That's Where I Belong,'' a self-reflexive song about Paul's musical career. Paul next launches into perhaps his most recognized hit ''Graceland.'' Everything just seems to flow, listening to Paul's lyrics is like food for the mind and soul - a personal catharsis. Other songs from the concert include: You Can Call Me Al, I Am A Rock, American Tune, Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard, and the best version of Bridge Over Troubled Water you'll ever hear. This is the best concert available on DVD/Video I have ever seen - do yourself a favor and buy it!
