Midstream with Paul Simon
Posted:Wednesday, 10/10/2012 at 03:10am by Greg Easterling
We reached the middle of our week this morning with Paul Simon. His birthday is actually Saturday so we got an early start on the confetti today with a side from his 1975 #1 album, Still Crazy After All These Years.

As with many of the albums he's recorded over his long career, it was an artistic achievement that listeners also purchased in mass quantities. Still Crazy offered a polished mix of musical influences including jazz, gospel and classic pop. Paul's duet with Art Garfunkel, "My Little Town"(credited to Simon and Garfunkel) nicked the Top Ten while "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover" made it all the way to #1. We heard both songs as well as the title track as we tracked Side 1 this time.
