Simon and Garfunkel – Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

$47.50 $37.00

Overall, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme was the duo’s album about youthful exuberance and alienation, and it proved perennially popular among older, more thoughtful high-school students and legions of college audiences across generations. [The August 2001 reissue offers not only the best sound ever heard on this album in any incarnation, but also a few bonuses — a slightly extended mastering of “Cloudy” that gives the listener a high-harmony surprise in its fade; and, as actual bonus tracks, Simon’s solo demos of “Patterns” and “A Poem on the Underground Wall.” Raw and personal, they’re startling in their intimacy and their directness, and offer a more intimate view of Paul Simon, the artist, than ever seen.]

Description

Featured in Michael Fremer’s Heavy Rotation in the February 2009 Issue of Stereophile!
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)”.
Sundazed’s exact vinyl replica of this harmony-rich classic is sourced from the original stereo master tapes, making this an essential component of any ’60s pop/rock collection.
