Album Review

The Collected Works was a triple-disc box set that included all of the duo's albums, but no rarities. For average fans — even fairly dedicated ones — that set contained most everything they would need, even if the sound quality was a little below average. Old Friends is a three-disc box set that was designed to replace The Collected Works, but it fails to achieve its goals despite its improved remastered sound. Part of the reason is the content itself — all five albums plus the rarities on this set could have fit on three discs, offering a real complete recorded studio works, but the compilers decided to truncate the albums and toss on a handful of rarities. Even if it isn't all it could have been, the box isn't bad — after all, it features all of the hits, most of the major album tracks, the 1975 reunion "My Little Town," and a couple of good rarities like "Blues Run the Game" — and it may be enough for some casual fans.

Customer Reviews

Folk-Rock Perfection!

Probably the best and most influential group to emerge from the early folk-pop movement....this anthology clearly captures the innocence and hope that prevailed in the 1960's. Before Paul became the smooth urban hipster in the 70's, you can hear the pure joy and passion that drove him during his early years. Growing up seems like a 'drag' after hearing these tracks, most notably the nimble guitarwork and soaring vocals on the Wednesday Morning 3 AM-era sessions. If you love melody, harmony and folk flavored rock from another time, buy this album!

Utterly Mellow.....

amazing singing, simon is great, but art brings the harmony and the hair... the version of comfort and joy is one of the most well vocalized songs ever recorded... this collection is well worth buying even if you are new the simon and the garfunkel


I don't understand why a lot of people don't like them, they sing wonderfully and have very uplifting songs. The Acoustic is wonderful. These guys are awesome!!!

The most successful folk-rock duo of the 1960s, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel crafted a series of memorable hit albums and singles featuring their choirboy harmonies, ringing acoustic and electric guitars, and Simon's acute, finely wrought songwriting. The pair always inhabited the more polished end of the folk-rock spectrum and was sometimes criticized for a certain collegiate sterility. Many also feel that Simon, as both a singer and songwriter, didn't truly blossom until he began his own hugely...
