American Tunes - Songs By Paul Simon

American Tunes - Songs By Paul Simon

Ace's Songwriters series continues to be one of our most popular, with plenty of worthy candidates for inclusion waiting in the wings to join those we have already featured.

Paul Simon's compelling songs have been subject to covers since the mid-60s, when he and his singing partner Art Garfunkel made their own big breakthrough as artists with "Sounds Of Silence". When the duo each went solo in the early 70s, Paul's albums continued to be plundered by his peers, and things have remained that way well into the 21st century.

American Tunes" features almost two dozen of Paul's prime compositions, reinterpreted in all manner of styles from rock to reggae to acapella to adult contemporary. All have been chosen to represent the diversity in Paul's writing, and also chosen because of the high quality of each individual reinterpretation.
