Background: Released in 1974, Paul Simon in Concert/Live Rhymin’ was Paul Simon’s first live album.
The LP reached #33 on the U.S. album charts.
One thing Simon & Garfunkel never did much of was tour, so a Paul Simon solo tour, following two commercially successful solo albums, was one more way for Simon to distance himself from the duo and, simultaneously, by performing songs like “The Boxer” and “Homeward Bound,” to reclaim his songwriting catalog. … Though the album was, like most live albums, artistically redundant (there was nothing new, and none of the live versions improved upon the studio ones), it served as a career statement and it had a marketing function, buying the relatively slow-working Simon time between new studio releases.
