EDITORS’ NOTES

On their final album, Simon & Garfunkel progressed beyond folk-rock, once and for all. The classic title track underpins Simon's openhearted lyric and Garfunkel's angelic vocal with massive, gorgeous orchestration. They visit South America on "El Condor Pasa/If I Could" and "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright," and the Caribbean on the rollicking percussion workout "Cecilia." They even reclaim their '50s roots with a heartfelt Everly Brothers cover. Simon gets a touching moment on "The Only Living Boy in New York," an enigmatic view of the duo's impending breakup.
