I just found your site! Love “Gone at Last” & had no idea thar Paul had written it. I think I remember Phoebe signing it on SNL? It’s nice that Paul and Bette are on YT as buds singing for charity. I like”Gift of Love” remix, & always thought the CD versionhad a “ping” to it, ( almost in time of Hoff’s Eternal Flame”. Still so beautiful. Gosh, 1990? 31 yrs? – oh live life to the fullest – that was like yesterday?

I had never heard that version of Paul Simon’s “Gone At Last” but, and I am merely speculating here, but I do not hear Paul Simon’s voice on here, it sounds like it might be one of the Jesse Dixon Singers, and I would venture a guess, given the 1975 year, that it might be audio from Bette’s “Clams On The Half Shell Revue” as she does a medley of that song and “Higher & Higher” from her 2nd album. Just a thought. Great find! Thank you Don.
PS I actually saw the show on Broadway in 1975, my first trip ever to NYC.
Fascinating, I had no idea. I am very impressed with how Paul sounds here, and am a huge fan of his. Thank you for all that information and everything else you do, it is very much appreciated!
