Paul Simon Discography

Paul Simon was born on 13 October 1941 and has performed under his own name as well as (early on) “Jerry Landis,” “Paul Kane,” “True Taylor” and “Tico.” Note that Art Garfunkel was born on 5 November 1941, and performed under the names “Tom Graph” and “Artie Graph.” Paul and Art performed together early on as “Tom and Jerry.”

The information here is taken from my own disk collection (vinyls and CDs) as well as from such excellent on-line sources as Paul Maclauchlan’s site at:

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel as
“Tom and Jerry” circa 1957.


Voices of Old People...

Man 1: I got little in this world: I'd give honestly, without regret, one hundred dollars for that picture. I remember taking a picture with...

Woman 1: Ooooh! Let me show you. Let me show you our picture. This was me and my husband when we were first married.

Woman 2: I always slept on one side, left room for my husband.

Woman 1: And that's, that's me when I was sixteen years old.

Woman 2: This, this, this, this is not the case, I still do it. I still lie on the half of the bed. We used to sneak though.

Man 2: I still haven't seen the doctor I was seein'. There's been blood for the last, uh, forty-eight hours. And I can't get up the mucus for the last, uh, two, three months. Oh, yes, and I mean pain; I mean pain strongly. To this minute, I don't think it's an ordinary cold.

Woman 3: God, forgive me, but an old person without money is pathetic.

Woman 4: Children, and mothers. That's the way we have it. A mother... There is mother, darling, ...

Woman 5: 'Cause mothers, ... Do mothers...

Woman 4: That is mother's life: to live for your child. Yes, my dear.

Man 3: I couldn't get younger. I have to be an old man. That's all. Well...

Woman 6: Are you happy here, honey! Are you happy living with us?

Man 3: So, any time I walk with Lou and... that's all.

Woman 6: With me? With Mr. Singer? Are you happy living with us here?

Woman 7: We don't do that, dear.

Woman 6: But, are you happy?

Woman 7: If you mean, if you say, you could say, yes, and I thought, and I was so happy, and everybody, "What is this? What is it?" It just as beautiful, like, just a room: your own room, in your own home.
