Paul Simon: London Palladium

Penny Valentine, Street Life, 10 January 1976

PAUL SIMON is small and neat and nervous. His songs reflect him perfectly. They are small and neat and edgy. Paul Simon delivers his songs inside an invisible box. It is the box of a man who keeps his real feelings hid. It is the box of a man who has told it time and again – how he doesn't like live performances – and now he is showing it.
