Picked up a copy of Simon and Garfunkel 1967 Concert in NY and have been listening to it all day. Amazing all acoustic show, with the clear voices and exquisite guitar that only acoustic music can give us. Went out and found some used copies of Bookends, Bridge over troubled Waters and Sound of Silence (had these as cassetts, never got the CDs) Think I'll listen to these this week in the car. Just love their harmonies, Simon's turn of a phrase, the way they can sing For Emily, and The Boxer, and Baby Driver with equal affect. Some good listening I think this week. (want to get the Old Friends CD set but that appears to be difficult to find)

Brings back many fond memories of my Hippie days....."Bookends" 1968 was remixed in 2001 with a couple of extra tunes.....Can be purchased very reasonably at amazon.com....One my "My heart Cd's" .....Punky's Dilemma, America, Old Friends, At the Zoo etc....A must have.....Enjoy.......Currently listening to Jennifer Warnes"s "Famous Blue Raincoat" covers of Lenard Cohen.....What a voice and just great a cover album....She had LC blessings...Check it out.....

I've heard of this one, Chuck - must check it out. Didn't JW tour with Cohen as a back-up singer in the '70s? Have you caught up with Dylan's "Christmas in the Heart" album yet? I commented earlier that I haven't decided if it's quirkily good or really bad, but it's certainly a fun listen!

Hello Annis......Been Hibernating......Yes JW backed LC....They are very good Friends/Item....As much as I love LC....JW's version "A song for Bernadette" is terrific and of course "Joan of Arc" also....I've seen her stuff on U Tube....Dylan....I'll check it out soon.....I heard the proceeds go to a good cause....I like folk/traditional Christmas music...Mostly Celtic, some Jazz....I hope Dylan's CITH album is more on the quirky side.....Happy Thanksgiving?....not sure if NZ celebrates.....I like Thanksgiving better than Christmas...dislike the commercialism that has really tainted the Holiday Season.....

I got the two at a used CD store, for $6 each, not a bad thing at all. And they are looking for Old Friends for me.

Thanks Ash.....For reminding how great S&G are...."Bookends"....Still resonates like it did in 68'.....In fact it will be playing while we are enjoying Thanksgiving dinner....Have great and happy Thanksgiving......Friends and family...my favorite holiday.....P.S. I love used Music/ Books stores.....Although... I've been known to get lost in the Ozone when i start perusing....
