Finally listened to Paul Simon’s Take me to the Mardi Gras

And holy shit it is terrible. Unlistenable. Couldn’t make it to the end. And he has that stupid accent that came out of nowhere. He didn’t have that with Garfunkel. 

Ugh. 

Back to Bob James version there is that voice in the background. All I can make out is “rise and shine”. I wonder what that’s all about. 

It reminds me of some thread a long time ago where somebody asked what the worst version of spinning wheel was and somebody else said “the original”.

  • I long ago made a vow never to listen to that version for the very reason you're experiencing now. Thank you for taking the bullet and letting me know I was right all these years.
