Radio 66, side A, track 9: “The Obvious Child” by Paul Simon

Paul Simon - The Obvious ChildOh, Paul Simon, I could lie to you and tell you how honored I was to have been able to record one of your songs off the radio, but honestly, at the time, I think I only knew you as the guy who danced around in that video with Chevy Chase about calling you Al.  I also didn’t know you were the guy who introduced me to Ladysmith Black Mambazo.  I also didn’t know that Ladysmith Black Mambazo was the name of the group.  I didn’t even know that you were the originator of the song “Cecilia”.  So I didn’t know a lot of things, Paul Simon.  What I did know was that I friggin’ loved the drums in this one.  Still do.  Oh, and you’re great, too.
