One-Trick Pony [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
Paul Simon's One-Trick Pony never sold as well as it might have, perhaps because it was associated with a film that few people enjoyed -- although, ironically enough, it wasn't a soundtrack album, and merely included some of the songs that Simon had written for the film. (In a sense, the album suffered a fate similar to Dean Koontz's novelization of The Funhouse, which turned out to be a much better book than Tobe Hooper's film was a movie, and was selling well and getting good reviews but died once the long-delayed movie got out to kill interest in it). It is a good album, if nowhere near as imposing as the four albums that preceded it, with the usual excellent playing and ...

It is a good album, if nowhere near as imposing as the four albums that preceded it, with the usual excellent playing and one unabashed jewel ("Late In The Evening").
