Folk Rock

The sixties are looked at with misty eyed nostalgia by many who were there and many who wish they were. It was a time of great change, socially and culturally with the emergence of pop culture being taken as a serious contributor to the arts for the first time. With the rose tinted spectacles worn by many professional critics you could be forgiven for passing over the contribution of Simon & Garfunkel to this most schizophrenic of decades. If that is the case, you need to listen to this album.Quite simply, this is sublime.

Songwriting has rarely been better and a compilation of any artists work rarely been stronger. Paul Simon wrote 15 of the 17 songs on this album but its the combination of Simon's melody and lyrics with their harmonies that makes this body of work as strong as any of their contemporaries over the period.

Never fashionable, the duo nevertheless enjoyed a few years of being cool in bedsitland and with students as they became the darlings of the Greenwich Village folk scene and blending their acoustic style with a pop rock edge struck a chord with a scene alongside the likes of Dylan. Songs like Homeward Bound and America captured perfectly a balance between scope in their depiction of the protagonist in a strange land with a poignancy that was a recurring theme in their work through songs such as Bookends and The Boxer. Downsides? Well the mawkish Bridge over Toubled Water, their biggest hit, has been overplayed and lacks the charm of their best work but Garfunkel's voice soars and is almost adequate compensation. Otherwise this is a remarkable collection of the good and the great from the Simon and Garfunkel catalogue and should be in your collection.

If you think songs in the sixties began and ended with Dylan or the Beatles you really need to listen to this album.
