Jessy Dixon and Paul Simon on Vinyl
So back at NQC I heard about Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver recording with Paul Simon and I said to myself, oh that’s kinda interesting/odd/curious. And forgot about it. Until lo! … a friend of mine who has read some of the southern gospel book I’m forever writing and knew of my interest in all things Gaither gave me a 1974 LP: Paul Simon In Concert, Live Rhymin’.
As a title, Live Rhymin’ is almost as bad as Simon’s hair from this era, but as you may be able to make out from these not-great pictures, the album features several assists by the then-Jessy Dixon Singers, twenty-odd years before his taking up with the Gaither Homecoming:
That’s Jessy over there on the right at the organ, I’m pretty sure, and up top with two of the three Singers in pink. This is a low-tech close-up of the latter image from my iPod.
Something tells me Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver will strike a slightly different pose, nes cafe?Email this Post
