Simon and Garfunkel’s classic albums “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme” and “Bookends” (SUNLP5233), 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.
The pair’s third album Parsley, Sage… was the first on which they won complete artistic control, and they rose to the occasion brilliantly, delivering an ambitious, autumnal epic that’s been described as a folk-rock equivalent of the Beatles’ Revolver and the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds. Combining fuzz-tinged pop and pastoral baroque-folk with the duo’s heavenly harmonies, Paul Simon’s heady wordplay and some imaginatively layered production touches, the album features such Simon and Garfunkel standards as “Homeward Bound”, “Scarborough Fair” and “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)”.
