The three albums I grew up with, based on frequency, were Simon and Garfunkel’s The Definitive, Paul Simon’s Graceland, and Dire Straits’ Brothers In Arms. Call Me Al and The Boxer were my two favourite songs. Here’s Mumford and Sons doing a live version of The Boxer, which they have also recorded with Jerry Douglas (you can listen to the recorded track here).
I like it. Al hates it. Though he likes this version with Alison Krauss.
I much prefer the Mumford and Sons version.
Though I think we all agree that the originals do it best – even when they’re old…
