    The Concert in Central Park

    I have always loved this concert. All of the best songs are here along with a few others. If you are a drummer you need to see Steve Gadd on the drum kit. If you are wondering, yes, this is the concert that originally aired on HBO in the early '80s. Enjoy!!!

    A Must Have for S&G Fans

    Terrific Concert. I recorded it live from the broadcast in 1981 but that tape is tired so this DVD is an archive for me. They did a great job editing this so the songs and the comments between them by Paul and Art are retained.

    Stupendous concert

    I've got this thing on vhs. Its great. Plus, you get to see Paul Simon attacked on stage by some crazed guy.. it really shook Paul up, you can tell. This price is a give away!!!
