Original Album Classics

by Paul Simon
1 New & Used Starting at $29.99


This 2015 box set is weighed down by the curious inclusion of Songs from The Capeman and You're the One, the former being one of Paul Simon's weakest records and the latter being a cult favorite, but the other three records -- Paul Simon, There Goes Rhymin' Simon, and Hearts and Bones -- are among his best and help make this a nice bargain-priced box.
