St. Judy's Comet
Label: Legacy Recordings
Any LP that opens with "Kodachrome" and closes with "Loves Me Like a Rock" (two of the best hits of the '70s) is aces with us. Laidback and confident, Paul Simon isn't in any rush as he happily gets low-key assistance from the Dixie Hummingbirds and Quincy Jones (who pens charts for the army of jazz and R&B guest stars). A personal triumph on a blockbuster budget.
