paul simon‘s new album surprise came out a week or two ago… it’s produced by brian eno. it’s good. it’s no negotiations and love songs (which isn’t fair because that’s a compilation), or rhythm of the saints but i do love it. and the electronicky brian eno stuff is good and surprising (hey, looky at that) too.
and i love this song.
i have jake to thank for my love of paul simon. we drove to st. louis and lafayette, la to see him playing with bob dylan.
still two of the best shows i’ve ever seen – he’s a genius at arranging and lyrics and complexly layered, rich music. and i’d gladly pay $75 again to see him play more.
