After sharing Paul Simon's Detroit stop on his 1974 tour, which you can find here:, we received a few requests for any of the Japanese shows mentioned in the notes. Though I currently don't have access to the more common Tokyo shows, I was able to locate in MR's extensive collection the less common Nagoya show which we are pleased to offer here.

The second of at least four Japanese performances during this leg of the tour and taking place two months after the Detroit show, this show is substantially longer with changes to the set.

In addition to re-arranging the set, gone are "Run That Body Down", "St. Judy's Comet" (sadly) and "Something So Right". Added are "Cecilia" transitioning from "Was A Sunday", "Scarborough Fair", "I Am A Rock", "What Do You Call Him", "Jesus Is The Answer" (both featuring The Jessy Dixon Singers in lead roles), "Love Me Like A Rock" and "Bye Bye Love".

The feel of the show and taping location is similar but slightly better than Detroit. There is less tape hiss than Detroit but also needed a healthy pitch adjustment.

Thanks once again to my 30+ year trading partner MR for his generosity in supplying us shows.
