After splitting with angel-voiced Art Garfunkel, Paul Simon went on to release album after album of proudly literate, emotionally rich, and globally informed popular music. Covering 1971 to 2006, this bountiful collection reflects Simon's nearly flawless pop craftsmanship in hits like "Kodachrome" and "You Can Call Me Al," plus the gospel-driven "Loves Me Like a Rock" and other proud Americana, the South African-inflected glory of "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes," and late-career sonic experiments with Brian Eno ("Outrageous")

Other Paul Simon's Album. The Essential Paul Simon. Songs: 20. Year: 2007. Stranger To Stranger. Songs: 8. Year: 2016. Original Album Classics. Year: 2015.

Maybe the Essential Paul Simon Collection should hve been titled, The Definitive Paul Simon since it is the most definitive collection of all his single and double . All previous collections either completely omit the songs, Duncan and American Tune (both radio hits) or else substitute them for live versions. The 2007 Essential Paul Simon is a double album reflection of what made Paul Simon's solo career so dynamic and universal. This was made in honor of his recent inagural Gershwin Award for Song, as well as his 35th anniverasry as a acclaimed solo artist. This collection follows in suit very nicely, and expands the effort delightfully that was made so well on his last solo hits package, 2002's On My Way.
