"The debut album from the duo of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel was released in 1964. reached #30 on the Billboard 200. The album features the duo's cover of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'".
"In thrall to the then popular folk movement, S&G had yet to come into their own, relying overwhelmingly on cover versions to round out this delicately recorded 1964 album. My two-eye Columbia LP sounded lush, tactile, palpable, and warm — everything I want to hear from an album of intimate songs performed on acoustic guitars and bass. S&G’s beautiful harmonies are in full effect throughout, finding perfect expression in Simon’s “Bleecker Street,” the most astute crystallization of Greenwich Village in the early 1960s ever written. Simon sings of workers, artists, the homeless and students with equal empathy, over the first of many beautiful Simon melodies and his evocative guitar work. Portraying the Village in the early morning light, S&G sing “I saw a shadow touch a shadow’s hand,” and the image stays with you. S&G’s debut reached #30 on the charts, with no hit single to rival the impact of The Beatles. Their future first hit, “The Sound of Silence,” is recorded here without its familiar electric backing.
The new LP followed most digitally restored albums in its low-end, pumped up to more closely resemble modern records. But the bass boost is tasteful, actually tubey-sounding, as is also heard in the album’s midrange. The low-end is also more detailed sounding than my original LP, yet with an added, slightly unnatural thickness. Vocals also sounded slightly thicker, yet with greater resolution and throatier textures. All in all, a very listenable LP remaster"
