Paul Simon 1964/1993 is a compilation album released in 1993 by Paul Simon. It contains a collection of recordings ranging from his earliest collaboration with Art Garfunkel (the 1957 release "Hey, Schoolgirl") and further Simon & Garfunkel hits to songs from his subsequent solo career. Despite carrying the title "Paul Simon 1964/1993", the music on this compilation was recorded between 1957 and 1991, and no tracks were recorded in 1964 or 1993.

The three-disc box-set was designed and edited by Simon himself and includes only three previously unreleased tracks: "Thelma" (which was left off The Rhythm of the Saints); the original demo version of "Bridge Over Troubled Water"; and a live rendition of "Still Crazy After All These Years." Noteworthy omissions from the compilation are "Homeward Bound" and "I Am a Rock".
