Wonderful. Thanks for the link. Just finished watching it. Their synchronicity never ceases to amaze me. The only thing I didn't like about that concert was the way the backup was choreographed. They should have ditched that electric piano set on vibe, and they didn't need to use the brass section for the older classics. My all time favorite is The Boxer --- genius in it's simplicity. They needed to shut down the band for that one and let them do what they do best.

Great stuff, though. They should be studied in music classes all over the world.

Been for many years. Their harmonies were great. Shame they can't patch up their differences and record again.

Fran, i don't have your musical "ear" so I'm way less critical...I just enjoyed their harmony, and music.it was nice seeing that concert again....must have been exciting to see it live, in the park.

They got together recently for their 2003-2004 Simon &amp; Garfunkel "Old Friends Tour", and will be releasing CDs and DVDs soon:

"Old Friends: Live On Stage, a deluxe double CD and DVD package capturing the historic 2003-2004 Simon &amp; Garfunkel "Old Friends Tour" will be released November 30th on Warner Bros. Records in the US and Sony BMG internationally. Along with the deluxe two CD and DVD edition, Old Friends: Live On Stage will be released as a two CD set as well as in a DVD-only configuration."

They've also done some hurricane fund raising singing recently.

Trivia: What Paul Simon song was not recorded by Simon and Garfunkel, but was a hit recorded by another band?

Don't know....but what name did they record under before becoming Simon and Garfunkel?

IIRC, it was "Tom and Jerry", or something like that. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Correct... it was 1958-1959. The songs didn't do well on the charts.

Some of my favorites are the early stuff, like the album "Bookends." Never on the radio much except in the days when FM radio was the underdog and stations played some very good album selections. Before FM became so commercialized like the rest of the music world. Thank goodness for college radio stations like WXPN out of Philly area.
Um.. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif .. did I get off the track a bit?
By the way, what is the answer to the song question?
