Some Paul Simon fans have requested this in the past and I'm happy to oblige. This is a concert from Paul Simon's one and only solo tour in 1984. Four shows were taped as far as I know (the others being Saratoga, Vancouver, & Illinois). The sound here is good, not great. There is some distance and a bit of echo, however someone has obviously tweaked the recording, giving it more treble and bringing the performance forward. It is especially fortunate to hear for guitarists out there who are interested in learning Paul's work. He's always been, in my mind, an underrated player and this show shows his abilities unadorned by back-up musicians. I've decided to let the sound be and anyone who would like to better it is welcome to the task. Also if anyone has the Saratoga or other solo tour shows, please share. The Saratoga show is reportedly the best sounding of the bunch. ENJOY!
