I love a good 1-disc greatest hits--no filler, not that Simon & Garfunkel ever had much of that anyway. Four of the songs--"For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her," "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)," "Homeward Bound," and "Kathy's Song"--are live recordings; I find that a little disruptive to the flow, but I guess it was a selling point when this was released since the live versions were previously unavailable. My favorites are "The Boxer," "The Sound of Silence" and "Scarborough Fair/Canticle."
During the 1960s, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel (aka. Simon & Garfunkel) were one of pop music's most acclaimed duo acts of that era. With their easy-listening, folk-rock sound, Simon & Garfunkel scored a string of solid, #1 hits throughout the latter half of said decade.
It was, of course, Paul Simon's song-writing talent that was solely behind the penning of all these memorable tunes. Simon clearly had a notable gift for compositions containing excellent syncopated harmony.... Throughout his long career as a singer/songwriter, Paul Simon has earned a grand total of 12 Grammy awards for both his solo and collaborative work.
This "Best Of" CD features 14 of Simon & Garfunkel's most remembered tunes (from between 1964-1970). Three of my favourites are - The Boxer, Scarborough Fair, and Homeward Bound.
