    When I first listened to SONGS FROM THE CAPEMAN in late 1997 I was certain Paul Simon's first Broadway Musical would be a hit. It didn't help that The New York Post seemed to have it out for Mr. Simon, giving the show a devastatingly bad review weeks before its official opening. THE CAPEMAN may have had its problems but the album that contains song selections from the score is nothing short of a masterpiece. An epic story of one man's fall and redemption is told here in songs that burn in the memory. Every cut on this album is tremendous, but for my money "Trailways Bus" ranks among the finest songs Paul Simon has ever written. SONGS FROM THE CAPEMAN is a flat -out work of art.

    Excellent Album, Underrated

    I've read what other people have said here, and while I understand both points of view, I have to say I really love this album. It's true that you'll like it and appreciate it a lot more if you read the liner notes and understand the story on which the songs are based -- and it IS better to listen to it as the soundtrack to a Broadway show, rather than as a typical studio compilation from a recording artist. But even if you forget about the Capeman theme and listen to it as a stand-alone piece of work, I think the album is strong. I personally listened to it before reading and knowing about the Capeman story, and I was blown away by the doo-wop musicality and Latin riffs evident in many of the tracks. This album really does hearken back to 1950s music, and also incorporates a lot of samba, bassnova and Cuban rhythms and melodic elements. Forgetting all that technical music stuff, though, you don't have to be a playwright, musician, or connoseur to enjoy this album. Simply put, the songs are really well-crafted. Simon's voice remains strong, and his songwriting and lyricism is second to none here.

    Talk about diversity

    There certainly are some strong opinions about this... both ways. I should have chimed in months and months ago. Having grown up in NYC, I'm familiar with the story and absolutely love the music style. Regardless of any opinion on the case itself, Simon really captured the times... sociologically, politically, and economically. I, for one, play it over and over and only wish I could write and sing the way Simon and his fellow artists do. Also wish I could have gotten back to the Apple to have seen the show.

    I like it

    I like this album a lot, i'm also a huge paul simon fan. The thing is, that its not an almbum, it's selected songs from a musical, and they're not even supposed to be the best song. They are good songs, but you have to listen to it in the context of a musical, not a cd. I like it, it tells a story, and there are many featured performers, though paul sings most of the songs. The original cast recording would be amazing to listen to, but i'm not sure it will ever be released. Anyway, I don't think this is a failure, I like it a lot. Now I have to even things out the best i can.

    Send it Back

    Terrible album. I'm a die-hard Paul Simon fan and am so disappointed in this album. Perhaps if I saw the musical I would like it better. I bought it, tried to listen to it several times, and finally sold it back. What's worse is that I bought it for someone as a gift before I listened to it.

    Simon Still Knows How It's Done

    I'm going to have to disagree with you, WLDTRAV, but this CD is one of Paul Simon's greatest works. It gives the multi-sided story of these 1950's murders in such a way that instills sympathy and anger. This is a must have for all Simon fans. He's always done a great job, and this CD is no exception.
