Paul Simon: You're The One-In Concert from Paris (#2605)

Earlier this year Paul Simon returned to the recording studio to create a new collection of songs exploring the human spirit. With the warmth and wisdom that have long been his trademarks, this latest work, titled "You're the One," further showcases the maturation of this beloved singer/songwriter. It now provides the framework for this concert special, recorded live on stage at Paris' famed Olympia Theatre. The evening finds the artist, at age 59, still in top form. Fronting his guitar-driven 10-piece band, he offers a generous portion of Simon classics and selections from the new album, including the internationally flavored title track.
