This is the first Simon & Garfunkel album. You listen to it now and it’s hard to believe that this duo that promised “exciting new sounds in the folk tradition” would go on to deliver that; would go on to create enduring classics. I rather enjoy the low-key debut now. But what would I have thought of it at the time? I guess we have one song to thank – and its revised version. Not much here that hints at stadium-rock reunions.
