The song is on two albums:
Paul Simon’s Still Crazy After All These Years which entered the Kent Music Report album chart on 17 November 1975 and peaked at #39.
Also Art Garfunkel’s Breakaway which entered the Kent Music Report album chart on 17 November 1975 and peaked at #26.
In 1970 Simon and Garfunkel decided to part ways and record their own solo material.
In early 1975, Paul Simon decided to prepare material for a new solo album but one song, My Little Town, was written with Art Garfunkel specifically in mind.
Paul has been quoted as saying: “It originally was a song I was writing for Artie. I was gonna write a song for his new album, and I told him it would be a nasty song, because he was singing too many sweet songs! It seemed like a good concept for him.”
After playing the song for Art, the two decided to collaborate again in the studio on this one track.
