Ending years of pent-up demand, There Goes Rhymin' Simon finally appears on remastered 180g LP and satisfies audiophiles' thirst for a worthy analog edition of this 1973 classic. The Grammy-nominated (Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Album of the Year) follow-up to Paul Simon's self-titled solo breakout album showcases a pair of timeless anthems ("Kodachrome" and "Loves Me Like a Rock") and peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200. Audiophile remastered at Sterling Sound and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, this is the version of this classic to own. It sounds incredible.
Demonstrating a deeper flair for soul and R&B, Simon recruited both gospel backup singers and traveled to the Muscle Shoals Sound Studios to further refine the vibrant sound he desired. Guest performers include soul legends such as David Hood, Bob Cranshaw, and Allen Toussaint. Quincy Jones even handles string arrangements on one tune. The result: A record many critics rightly believed a masterpiece.
