Barnes & Noble - Steve Futterman
Paul Simon’s brilliant solo albums reflect a restless musical mind hungry for new sounds, as well as a literary imagination eager to express sentiments and ideas in novel ways. Continually reinventing his musical identity, always going his own way, Simon has led an exemplary pop music career. The Studio Recordings 1972-2000 collects the quintessential singer-songwriter’s nine defining albums, including Paul Simon, There Goes Rhymin' Simon, Still Crazy After All These Years, One -Trick Pony, Hearts and Bones, Graceland, Rhythm of the Saints, Songs from The Capeman, and You’re the One. Each is available as a single album with additional tracks included. Supplementary material is added to every album in the form of demos, outtakes, or live performances. Simon’s albums present a fascinating journey as he formulates an individual musical voice distinct from his groundbreaking work with Simon and Garfunkel. As the increasing sophistication of his earlier singer-songwriter works evolves into the pioneering world music albums Graceland, and Rhythm of the Saints, the breadth and scope of Simon’s ambitions becomes apparent. There are hits on nearly every album -- classics including “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard,” “Kodachrome,” “Still Crazy After All These Years,” “Late in the Evening,” and “Call Me Al” -- amid slews of superb songs that have cemented Simon’s status as a pop music master. Collected amid his other work, this box set allows us to look afresh upon and reconsider some of the less-celebrated Simon albums, such as Hearts and Bones, Songs from The Capeman, and You’re the One. A great composer, singer, guitarist, and musical conceptualist, Simon is an American artist for the ages, and The Studio Recordings 1972-2000 is his testament.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Look closely at the title to this nine-disc box set -- it's Studio Recordings, not the complete studio recordings, which means there are things missing, and they will be things that you will miss. Naturally, the emphasis on studio recordings means that neither of Paul Simon's two live albums -- 1974's Live Rhymin' or 1991's Concert in the Park -- are here, but this also doesn't contain all of Simon's released studio recordings, somehow bypassing "Slip Slidin' Away," the Top Five single originally released as one of two new songs on his 1977 compilation, Greatest Hits, Etc. Since that single was not on a proper album, it has been overlooked on this box, which serves up remastered and expanded digipack reissues of Simon's nine solo albums from 1972's Paul Simon to 2000's You're the One. Since these reissues not only sound terrific -- the clarity, particularly on the first two albums, is startling -- but are graced with genuinely interesting bonus tracks, the omission of the original version of "Slip Slidin' Away" is a little easier to forgive, particularly since an excellent, loose-limbed alternate version is added to Still Crazy After All These Years and "Stranded in a Limousine," the other new song on Greatest Hits, Etc., finally reappears on CD as a bonus track on One Trick Pony. These are only two bonus tracks of 30 that are spread over these nine albums. With the exception of "Stranded in a Limousine," "Thelma" on Rhythm of the Saints an outtake originally released as part of 1993 box set 1964-1993, and three live tracks on You're the One, all of these bonus tracks are previously unreleased. While there is a handful of rare songs, the majority of these are either demos or works in progress, and they're fascinating, such as a radically different version of "Duncan" with an entirely different narrative, different final verses on "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" and "Loves Me Like a Rock," and a skeletal working version of "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes" containing little more than Simon's vocal and a fretless bass. By and large, these are significant additions to Simon's catalog, and combined with the terrific remastering, they make this essential for any serious Simon fan although it would have been nice if either the individual albums or the overall box were given new liner notes, particularly since Rhino's similar Jerry Garcia box set, All Good Things, had such a stellar booklet. For the less dedicated, a better bet will be cherry-picking from reissues of the individual albums, which are scheduled to go on sale in the month after the release of this box set.
