PAUL SIMON
Featuring Art Garfunkel
London 1975 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the London Palladium, London, UK; December 11, 1975. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to kingrue for sharing the show at The Traders’ Den.

kingrue noted:

Paul Simon played four nights at the London Palladium. He also played concerts in Birmingham and Manchester. Each [date] had an early and late show.mThis FM is a combination of both sets (yet partial). I’m not sure which Palladium show this BBC broadcast comes from, so I’m labeling it as the first night Dec 11. I couldn’t find very much information about this run of shows, so I hope my info is correct. I know there is a liberated DVD of this performance (I have not seen it).

I also had to pitch correct this, it played slow. I think the pitch is near perfect now. This took some research and editing work, i hope it’s okay with everybody.Thanks to Mauro for the tape transfer.

While doing research, i found a concert review for the show from Dec 12 which does not mention Art performing. I think Art only joined onstage for one night only. Just my best guess.

Corrections Welcomed.

  2. There seems to be a low-level static. Track 13 is not Kodachrome, I don’t know it.

  3. Track 13 is American Tune.

  7. Hey Anti / DD , triple h , hall of fame nfl linebacker Kevin Greene dies at age 58 . No cause of death listed yet .Greene was a throwback to the days of earlier greats like Dic Butkus , Ray Nitsche and mad dog mike Curtis . A real baller who came to play every fuckin game . 3rd all time in quarterback sacks . Greene was also white , which is fuckin rare as shit in a game dominated these days by motherfuckin coons and hi yellers RIP Kevin Greene

    By Derrick on Dec 22, 2020

  8. This show is good by the way . I loved SaG as a kid growing up even if they both is motherfuckin Jew bastards . Like wit Bob Dylan I try to overlook that , but it’s hard sometimes to accept

    By Derrick on Dec 22, 2020

  9. The harmonica player is called Toots Thielemans (and not Theilmans)

  10. Hey Derrick, you must have huge broad shoulders carrying that weight of jewness around with you. How do you manage it every single day?

    By Nelson on Dec 22, 2020

  11. I lick Paul’s bald nutsack.

    By Corey M on Dec 22, 2020

  12. Hey Derrick FUCK YOU, ASSHOLE!!!

    By DD on Dec 22, 2020

  13. Hey Derrick. name stealin jew cocsuckers. not me above.

    By DD on Dec 22, 2020

  14. I wanna be pimped by a jew. maybe swapper the jew can pimp me out to suck off young uns

    By Corey M on Dec 22, 2020

  15. I wanna be shat upon by HHH. I love that squishy smelly feeling feces covering my body. I love rolling around in it and sipping it with a straw

    By Corey M on Dec 22, 2020

  16. I wouldnt mind being called King of the Jews

    By Nelson on Dec 23, 2020

  17. Not me either on the last few dd , derrick, hhh

    By Nelson on Dec 23, 2020

  18. Too bad about Kevin Greene derrick. I’ve heard it was a heart attack after a workout. Greene was a great defensive player for the rams , Steelers and panthers . He was one colorful character as well . As you said he was also white , which is a vanishing breed in today’s black ape dominated sports.

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  19. HHH, lets face it whitey has been taken out of sports thanks to the black sambos. Niggers dominate tennis, golf, basketball, football and the cubans and dominicans dominate baseball. The only sport that is whitey is hockey. I could give A RATS ass bout hockey. Whitey dominates in all the fag sports, swimming, archery, bowling etc. u get me. track and field and boxing is dominated by blackey

    By DD on Dec 23, 2020

  20. I think it’s systematic dd , Sports owners and coaches actually don’t think whites are as good . Dosent anybody remember Jerry West , John Havlicek, Bob Cousy , Bill Walton , Larry Bird and John Stockton in basketball? Some of the great football players all time were white , and not just quarterbacks . I remember white wide receivers, running backs and defensive linemen in decades past . Whites have been forced out of sports. How is that diversity?

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  21. Also many parents of white kids don’t want their sons playing sports, football in particular. Too many brain injuries, plus many don’t want them playing with the apes , because of all the showboat bullshit.

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  22. Look at the behavior of the few whites in football and basketball. The black ape influence has rubbed off . Many have tats and act badly just like the blacks , I call them vanilla Apes

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  23. your right. before jackie robinson…baseball was a white mans sport….the niggers always were the best at track and field. boxing became a black mans sport after rocky marciano and jack dempsey. the nigger is the superior athlete i hate to say. whitey is not meant to endure what blackie can do. they were slaves especislly the field niggers big strapping black bucks. thats why these southern belles love em.

    By DD on Dec 23, 2020

  24. baker mayfield thinks he’s all that and black. eli manning and peyton are white bread just like drew brees.its all fucked up hhh. gooks, slopes sand niggers we is the minority now. the white man

    By DD on Dec 23, 2020

  25. I don’t want no white woman . I love my little daughters they look like me . I don’t want no blonde haired blue eyed babies , and no white man in his right minds wants no kinky haired negro kids . Blacks with blacks , whites with whites , Chinese with Chinese, Indians with Indians, Mexicans with Mexicans etc .Everybody wants his kids to look like himself . None of this mixed marriage stuff . Muhammad Ali 1974 . In various interviews on various talk shows . That’s the champ making a lot of sense .

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  26. He didn’t believe in race mixing at least when it came to male female unions

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  27. Although he had white friendships and associates

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  28. This black male white female thing is a modern current generation thing . Old school blacks and whites for the most part did not approve . It deletes the black race also

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  29. Other races frown on race mixing. Asians, Indians , and other races are very stricked about racial purity. An Asian or Indian would hardly ever date or marry a black ape . They consider them inferior. Only white mudsharks have any interest .Black females are pissed because white mudsharks are taking their men .

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  30. I just shat on Corey M’s back while he was licking my nutsack from behind.

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  31. The ugly cocsucker enjoyed it.

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  32. I check in every once in a while to see if the loser group (ULE, Derrick, etc.) are still spewing their pre-pubescent nonsense. Some people nevr grow up. Or better yet die.

    By Mike on Dec 23, 2020

  33. Too bad Big O doesn’t ban HHH, ULE, Derrick, and the other assholes who have nothing original to say and insist on saying it everyday. It has to be depressing to be so inconsequential.

    By Mike on Dec 23, 2020

  34. Big O. You really should be ashamed of yourself.

    By Mike on Dec 23, 2020

  35. Ali was anti race mixing in the 60s and 70s . But so was practically everyone. I’m not sure being a separatist makes you a racist. Ali was also a fan of George Wallace who believed in segregation. He got many of his opinions from Malcolm X and the Nation of Islam who didn’t believe in interracial marriage.

    By T J on Dec 23, 2020

  36. It in fact does seem to be mainly a black male white female thing . Many black women are indeed angry and feel as though black men don’t consider them good enough. There isn’t nearly as much black female/ white male marriage. When white men marry outside their race , it’s usually with Hispanics and Asians. Asian men also rarely marry outside their race . People definitely have racial preferences. Black women are seen as loud and masculine which is a turn off . Asian women are seen as submissive and quiet which most men prefer. It’s considered more feminine.Asian men are considered less virile , less masculine.

    By T J on Dec 23, 2020

  37. Ali and Malcolm X had it right t j . Every race is better off staying with its own

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  38. The whole black man , white woman thing is to stick it to whitey from the black man perspective, and the mudshark sluts want that big black penis and they want to piss off their families, many who disown them

    By HHH on Dec 23, 2020

  39. Hey you guys , from a female perspective it’s all about the size for most of us . Black dudes have big diks and pea sized brains . But we don’t care about having conversations, we just want to be pounded and stretched to the max . As for Asian dudes, most I’ve seen have tiny diks and aren’t manly at all .

    By Anne on Dec 23, 2020

  40. You see HHH/TJ, when you have cunts like anne walking around, the white race will be polluted by the black demon seed

    By DD on Dec 23, 2020

  41. Blacks were happy lil mongrels before all this race mixing.Old school blacks hated when their sons dated mudsharks…The Jeffersons…Todays standards include every nigger must have a white trophy wife to prove he’s made it.

    By DD on Dec 23, 2020

  42. Gooks and slopeheads are not as submissive as you think. Many of them are the breadwinners and the husbands are Mr Moms.

    By DD on Dec 23, 2020

  43. DD, whites wit gooks don’t bother me that much , many viet nam vets married them slant eyed bitches during and after the war .. White bitches wit coons really pisses the shit out of me though , cause they is polluting our white race wit hi yellers , them little kinky haired bastards

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2020

  44. They should all get what Joe Pesci got in Casino

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2020

  45. Baseball bats breakin every bone, dragged and dumped in shallow graves , screaming in pain as the dirt is shoveled.The late great Frank Vincent doin the honors, just like he did to Pesci and his brother in the movie

    By Derrick on Dec 24, 2020

  46. Lots of people would like to do that to you Derrick.

    By HHH on Dec 24, 2020

  47. Excellent choice. Thank you for sharing this.
