Paul Simon
Paul Simon

  (Item #: simonpauls_1706) 

Our Price: $249.99

  • An outstandin Top Copy: Triple Plus (A+++) on side one and Double Plus (A++) on side two
  • Overall the sound is rich, warm, airy, and spacious with real depth to the soundfield - a Top 100 Title
  • ROY HALEE handled the engineering duties, and as usual for the time he did a great job, this being 1972 and not 1982
  • 5 Stars: "It was miles removed from the big, stately ballad style of Bridge Over Troubled Water and signaled that Simon was a versatile songwriter as well as an expressive singer with a much broader range of musical interests than he had previously demonstrated."

Paul Simon - Graceland

What to Think When the New Version Is Completely Unrecognizable?

  (Item #: simongrace_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: F

A Hall of Shame Pressing and another Heavy Vinyl LP debunked.

Where did this thick, dull, bloated, opaque turd come from? Having played at least 50 copies of the album over the last ten years, I can honestly say I have never heard one that sounded very much like this new version (maybe some record club copy we picked up by accident did, can't say it never happened).

Can that possibly be a good thing?

Paul Simon - Graceland

When Clarity Is King

  (Item #: simongrace_wtlf) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of Graceland.

We regularly do shootouts for Graceland. Having played so many copies over the years we're become quite familiar with the range of sound on the album, what constitutes good, better and best, and we understand precisely what qualities the premier copy must have in order to win one of our shootouts.

Above all the thing Graceland has going for it sonically is CLARITY. It has many other good qualities as well: It can be open and spacious, tonally correct, with punchy, tight bass and present, breathy vocals.

Paul Simon - Paul Simon

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: simonpauls_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

MASTER TAPE SOUND on side one, backed with a great side two! We just finished our first big shootout for this wonderfully fun album, and I gotta tell you -- I don’t think any Paul Simon solo album was recorded any better! I can’t imagine that you'll find a better sounding side than the first side of this copy; it's doing EVERYTHING right.

Paul Simon - Stil Crazy All These Years

Listening in Depth

  (Item #: simonstill_depth) 



Another in our series of Home Audio Exercises with advice on What to Listen For (WTLF) as you critically evaluate your copy of Still Crazy After All These Years.

As well-produced, well-engineered Pop Albums from the '70s, the very best copies can proudly hold their heads high. Wait a minute. Our last commentary noted what a mess most of the pressings of this album sound like, with so much spit and grain. Have we changed our minds? Well, yes and no, and as usual we make no excuses for having changed our minds. We call it progress.

Paul Simon - There Goes Rhymin’ Simon

Our Shootout Winner from 2008

  (Item #: simonthere_2008) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

TWO LOVELY SIDES, including a side one that takes this music to an entirely new level! People have been telling me for years how good this album can sound, but until we played this copy I didn’t realize just how right they were. This side one has STAGGERING presence and a MASSIVE three-dimensional soundfield that we simply did not hear anywhere else. The sound is airy, open, spacious and SO transparent, and the energy factor is OFF THE CHARTS. Drop the needle and brace yourself for rich, full-bodied sound that jumps out of the speakers and fills the room!

Simon & Garfunkel - Sounds of Silence

Our Shootout Winner from 2010

  (Item #: simonsound_2010) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This White Hot Stamper has AMAZING A+++ SOUND ON BOTH SIDES. It’s been ages since we’ve tried to tackle Sounds Of Silence, and with good reason -- it’s exceptionally difficult to find quiet copies with the right sound. This one is an entirely different story -- smooth, sweet and full-bodied with incredible presence.
