Paul Simon - Kodachrome

Today's Hump Day Retro Closet track is brought to you by Kodachrome. Kodak recently announced that they will no longer manufacture the iconic film that, as Paul Simon said "gives the nights bright colors, gives the green to summer, makes you think all the world's a sunny day." Well, Mama took it away.

Paul Simon is as iconic as the film he sung about. Writing, playing and recording music for over 4 decades, first with Art Garfunkel and as a solo artist. Way too much to write about Simon in this simple post.

Kodachrome is off his #1 1973 solo release There Goes Rhymin' Simon. The song was not released in the UK as the BBC did not play it, due to copyright regulations. In the US, Kodak required that Simon note on the album that Kodachrome is a trademark of Kodak.
