Karen Atkins’ cover of the classic Paul Simon track “Slip Slidin’ Away” is fantastic as it is able to possess the spirit of the original while imprinting her own unique tack on the track. Little more is needed on Atkins’ version than her inimitable vocals and just the lightest touch of guitars and drums. One will be teleported into close quarters with Atkins’ recording (a video is below) as she continues to expand upon the original. We’re particularly big fans of the 1:45 mark of the song, as there is a very complex arrangement that will take fans multiple plays to properly unknot.
