Paul Simon - The Complete Albums Collection
This is an excellent box set compilation featuring the best of this remarkable solo artist’s work. What you get is:-
The Paul Simon Songbook (1965)
Paul Simon (1972)
There Goes Rhymin’ Simon (1973)
Live Rhymin’ (1974)
Still Crazy After All These Years (1975)
One Trick Pony (1980)
Hearts and Bones (1983)
The Rhythm Of The Saints (1990)
Paul Simon Live In Central Park (1991)
Songs From The Capeman (1997)
You’re The One (2000)
So Beautiful Or So What (2011)
(To read in depth individual reviews of the albums, click on them).
All the albums are excellently remastered and contain the bonus material that appeared with their individual remasters. The two live albums are superb, particularly 1991’s “Live in Central Park”. The box only goes up to 2011, however, so it is not a complete collection as "Stranger To Stranger" and "In The Blue Light" are not included, neither is "Live In Hyde Park" or "Live In New York City".
I have reviewed quite a few of the albums under their individual listings. Needless to say this is a highly recommended box set from an artist who has made one hell of a contribution over so many years.
