This is a fair-quality audience recording from one of Paul's first appearances during the first season of Saturday Night Live. This appearance featured a reunion with Art Garfunkel ("so - you've come crawling back"), and showcased their new single, "My Little Town." The tapist was trying his best to hide his recorder, as the sound fades at times when he hides the microphone from the guards - you can hear the mic slip into the tapist's coat. For completists only - better recordings of this material are out there. Only available on Music Nation, an obscure Japanese label which is hard to find.
