The second issue capitalizes only the first letter of each word, and features the tracklist. The third has the same front cover as the second, but the back cover airbrushes out the copies of Tiger Beat magazine Garfunkel is holding in the photos.
The original LP label mistakenly spells "Anji" as "Angie" and credits it to Bert Jansch , who had recorded it for his debut album.
The back cover of the original LP sleeve properly credits Davey Graham as composer but retains the "Angie" misspelling. Both errors were corrected for subsequent reissues. All tracks are written by Paul Simon , except where noted.
Fifty Ways to Leave Your Lover, though, is deliciously silly. Although he must have the muscle memory to churn out a half-decent album without much effort, Simon has never done things by halves. On his lively 13th solo LP , he uses custom-made instruments, collaborates with Italian electronic artist Clap! Kodachrome was banned from UK radio for its reference to a brand of film — a shame, because it is a brilliant, shiny pop song with bite.
On Everything Put Together Falls Apart, he turns from the microphone halfway through a line to scratch his beard, as if so deep in thought he has forgotten he is recording. It is fitting for an album of such candid introspection — although there are lighter moments, such as the samba-influenced Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard. The standout, though, is America, a wistful, fruitless search for the land of the free.
The gospel-influenced title track is now rightly ubiquitous, and The Only Living Boy in New York — written after Garfunkel flew off to star in a film from which Simon had been dumped — is the most beautiful display of passive aggression ever committed to music.
Inspired by a bootleg cassette of Mbaqanga music, Simon incorporated his own melodic style and storytelling skill into the sounds he had fallen in love with, recruiting Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the Gaza Sisters to realise his ambitious ideas.
