Album Notes

Personnel includes: Paul Simon (vocals, guitar); Urubamba, The Jessy Dixon Singers.

Paul Simon's 1974 concert recording LIVE RHYMIN' is an intimate offering of some of Simon's greatest hits up until then, including "Homeward Bound," "Mother and Child Reunion," "American Tune" and others. Simon is in fine voice and accompanies himself on acoustic guitar. His guitar parts are subtle and sophisticated and always in motion, choreographing his songs. He is joined here on some numbers by the Peruvian acoustic instrumental group Urubamba and on others by gospel vocal group the Jesse Dixon Singers. Even back then Simon was mixing and matching different musical cultures and using them as settings for his songs. As always, his musical experiments are intriguing and enjoyable.
