Simon & Garfunkel fans ?

Hola amigos

Are there Simon and Garfunkel fans here ? I was just listening to "Live From New York City 1967" for the ? time and every single time I listen to the whole concert ( I always try to find some time, late at night with lights off to listen to the WHOLE concert, without skipping tracks ) and I feel something I have felt that with no other live CD, because, unlike what 99% of "Live" prefabricated and canned pieces of money machine are, this concert never was intended as a Live release

It is so intimate, sincere, honest, simple, heartwrenching, captivating, fascinating that I believe that I will never find an "unplugged" that will match that sublime and truly LIVE performance. No way, ALL sellout "MTV Unplugged" concerts have been only a cheap marketing machine move of low quality to obtain more and more easy money, besides crappy lame shows just for the cameras, even with "Fans" selected from castings, Simon And Garfunkel, as well as various other artists from mid 60´s , never thought about doing an opportunist "unplugged", because they WERE unplugged. Do you know what I mean ?

My favourite Simon And Garfunkel albums are:

1- Live From New York City 1967
2- Bookends
3- Bridge Over Troubled Water

Peace

bookends is great.

Only heard their most well-known songs, but all of those songs are great-"Sounds Of Silence" is a classic song, and I also love "Homeward Bound" .

One thing that I've always liked whenever I've listened to one of their songs is how nice their voices sound together-so gentle and soothing. It's pretty.

I've always just assumed any well informed music fan was appreciative of them.

Does anybody have bootlegs of their shows ? I´m looking for 60´s concerts and that seem to be harder than finding any other artist bootlegs ( U2, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, etc there are tons of bootlegs out there )

Peace

I would have to say that 'Bookends' and 'Sounds of Silence' are my two favourite albums

I bought my Dad a Simon & Garfunkel dvd for Christmas. He said it was great but I haven't seen it yet (makes note to borrow it).

I've got their Best Of and enjoy it a lot. I love the way their deceptively pretty melodies and harmonies hide some of the darkest lyrics in pop music.

Don't forget Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme. The 59th Street Bridge Song is like my life motto in song:
"Slow down you move to fast, you got to make the morning last, just kickin' down the cobblestones, lookin for fun and feelin groovy."

I grew up with them as my dad loves them, but then stopped listening to them b/c they weren't "cool." More recently, I have really gotten into their music.

I am just so sick of the same sound over and over and wish there was more music like theirs these days.
