Simon and Garfunkel Bookends on LP
Simon and Garfunkel's classic albums Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme 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.
Bookends, which arrived on the heels of Simon and 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 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."
Sundazed's exact vinyl replica of this harmony-rich classic is sourced from the original stereo master tapes, making this release an essential component of any '60s pop/rock collection.
