12 Songs, 28 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

PSR&T represents the first time Simon & Garfunkel had total control over their final product. They worked closely with engineer Roy Halee, and the complex harmonies and vocal arrangements of “Scarborough Fair/Canticle” demonstrated their growing confidence. Paul Simon’s songwriting had blossomed, and several of those songs (“Patterns,” “Flowers Never Bend with the Rainfall," and the Dylan parody “A Simple Desultory Philippic”) matched up well with the newer compositions, including the Art Garfunkel showpiece “For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her” and the classic “Homeward Bound.” The mix of a TV news broadcast and “Silent Night” provided social commentary that still rings true.

Feeling Groovy

One has to go back in time to find truly great music, but that's exactly what is needed. If this recording does not make you feel happy, then check your soul.

Dr. Bob

An absolute classic of an album written by possibly the best duo ever.
