Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 234/500!
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the July 2009 Issue of Stereophile!
Simon and Garfunkel's classic albums "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme"
(SUNLP5232) and "Bookends", released in 1966 and 1968 respectively, marked the
duo's emergence as both a brilliant creative force and one of their era's
biggest-selling recording acts.
"Paul Simon has said this is "the quintessential Simon and Garfunkel album." It is certainly far-ranging, a mostly dark, beautifully written voyage that includes both the epic "America" and the Graduate theme "Mrs. Robinson," still a pop-radio staple. The duo produced the record themselves, with brilliant restraint." - www.rollingstone.com
Bookends, which arrived on the heels of Simon & Garfunkel's high-profile role on
the soundtrack of the film The Graduate, is a brilliantly realized tour de force
that captures the pleasures, tensions and fears of its era as vividly as any
'60s album. Simon's literate, emotionally complex songwriting is matched by the
ambitious production, which elevates the fiery folk-rockers "A Hazy Shade of
Winter" and "Save the Life of My Child", the cinematic flights "America" and "Fakin'
It", the intimate ballads "Old Friends" and "Bookends Theme", and the
deceptively whimsical "Mrs. Robinson" and "At the Zoo".
