Just picked up Simon & Garfunkel Live 1969 disc at Starbucks.

Expensive - too bad it's the only current outlet for purchase.

May be unpopular view here, but that Paul Simon wrote some damn good songs - and the two voices singing together - pure heaven. The first time they started to perform Bridge Over Troubled Water and others from the same album prior to its release. Sublime. I believe I may prefer the Live form New York City, 1967 release - just two voices and Paul's beautiful and inventive acoustic guitar. Amazing how polite the audiences were - perfect silence during performance. But both releases are great and well worth the cost of admission. I urge you to check them out. It'll transport you back to the 60's. A turbulent but sometimes more simple time.

"and you read your Emily Dickinson, and I my Robert Frost . . "

Just an opinion.

I have a live recording of them from Central Park 1981. This is excellent sound and a ton of songs. I always like live better than studio, and these guys with their backup, put on a great show. Check it out.

It has excellent sound because it was released in 1982 on Warner Bros Records

Also check out the video of the event. It was recently re-released on dvd. Still the best show they ever had in the park!

I started collecting S & G and Paul Simon audios a year or so ago. I obtained quite a few old to modern audios. I was very impressed and rewarded for checking out those guys. You really can't beat their lyrics and harmonies. They are two of the best when they get together.

Paul Simon is definately in my top 3 all time favorite artists. IMHO, he's a musical genius. It's really hard to beat Graceland.

Lot unpopular view with this music lover. I agree with your assessment of their vocals - beautiful always. And Paul Simon is one of my favorite song-writers. (Graceland!!!)

I colected all of these shows and then some stuff that has yet to be categorized, like a three cdr set of pre- S & G song covers. I also have the 1981 DVD. Simon writes great songs and frequently Art Garfunkel could improve on them with his vocals. Both have lost a lot vocally, but then time robs every artist.

Don't care for that African rhythm crapola but love the sissy tunes from early on. They're kinda quaint dontcha think?
