A perfectionist in all he does, and not afraid to take chances and be radical as the mood takes. The variety embodied in his solo performances is displayed to great effect within this must-have album. His collaboration with Art Garfunkel produced some of the most iconic music of past decades, and the wonder is how he has managed to carve such a phenomenal second career, incorporating such a variety of ethnically inspired music woven around some of the very best pure American music ever penned. Deciding what to leave out of this beautifully edited album must have been a very daunting task, but the result is beyond compare.


This is a great album brought it and love it listen to it all the time!
