The Definitive Simon & Garfunkel (2nd Hand CD)
The Definitive Simon and Garfunkel is the fourth and best compilation album of greatest hits by the folk duo Simon & Garfunkel, released in UK & Europe in 1991. To promote the album, “A Hazy Shade of Winter” and “The Boxer” were re-released as singles in the UK in 1991 and 1992 respectively.
Simon and Garfunkel are undoubtedly one of the most successful songwriting duos of the 60's, reaching a similar level of popularity to the Beatles during the latter part of the decade.
This Definite Collection shows what a diverse duo they really were and how many memorable tunes they performed together. Though many were put off by the pair's more sterile folk-rock arrangements and clean choirboy harmonies, this collection shows that there was much more to their artistic palette.
Songs such as "Homeward Bound", "I Am a Rock", "Cecilia" and "Mrs Robinson" all show that the duo could rock with the best of them and "The Sound of Silence" and "Bridge over Troubled Water" are just some of the beautifully timeless records the pair gave us.

"For a time, Simon and Garfunkel stood supreme as folk come pop stars. This collection makes you understand why, from the wistfulness of The Boxer, the sentiments in The Sound of Silence to one of the greatest songs of love, the ever wonderful Bridge Over Troubled Water. Paul Simon wrote them, Art Garfunkel sang them and together they were fantastic. Ignore later solo songs and albums, just listen to this and lose yourself." - Google Review.
