Songs from The Capeman is the ninth solo studio album by Paul Simon, released in 1997. It contains Simon's own performances of songs from the Broadway musical he wrote and produced called The Capeman augmented by members of the original cast. A departure musically from his earlier work, the album features doo wop, rock 'n' roll and Puerto Rican rhythms. The songs tell the story of Salvador Agron, who was known as the "Capeman". The stage show was a commercial flop, losing $11 million, and the album did not sell well. It peaked at #42 on the Billboard 200, the lowest chart position in Simon's career.
