"Considered the duo's first masterpiece, this gem from 1966 had a major effect on the folk scene. To get it right, they spent 3 months in the recording studio, which was unheard of at the time...

If you listen carefully to Scarborough Fair, the canticle part is the words to a song from Paul Simons solo album "The Paul Simon Songbook", the song in question being "On the Side of a Hill". This album is the first in the S & G lead up to "Bridge over Troubled Water". By this I mean as "Beatles for Sale" signified the end of the Beatles early style and the birth of a more polished recording period so this album did the same for Simon and Garfunkel.

from the hilarious and bizarrely hard-hitting Paul Simon p-take of Bob Dylan's singing and writing style in "A Simple Desultory Phillipic." An irresistible mixture of Simon's contemplative compositions penned during his year in the UK, more traditional material to test their duo's harmonic prowess, and an evocation of mid-60s NYC artiness, the escalation of the yet to fully develop Vietnam war, and the civil right's movement...the quality of the songs, the complexity and superb metering of their lyrics and the often stunningly beautiful singing - captured at its finest in the breathtakingly poignant "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her".

This is arguably the best Simon & Garfunkel album. The feature song is of course "Feeling Groovy". A little known secret is that Art Garfunkel was also the producer of this Album...( Amazon customer)
