By 1968, Simon & Garfunkel had produced a string of folk-rock hits that included ‘The Sound of Silence,’ 'I Am a Rock' and ‘Mrs. Robinson.' But their chart success brought the duo criticism from folk music purists.
Pink Floyd's legendary 1973 album, 'The Dark Side of the Moon' is one of 25 recordings to be inducted into the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress. The record received the highest number of public nominations among this year's class.
Simon & Garfunkel couldn't have come out of any other time but the '60s. The duo started the decade as painfully earnest folk singers before evolving into one of the era's most adventurous artists. Their final two albums -- 1968's 'Bookends' and 1970's 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'
Long before reunion tours became a natural part of being in a rock group, Simon and Garfunkel did what nobody thought they would do again. On Sept. 19, 1981, the duo reunited for a free concert in New York City's Central Park.
Simon and Garfunkel will not record again, according to Paul Simon. Speaking to Rebecca Jones of BBC Radio 4's 'Today' program, Simon said that a problem with Art Garfunkel's vocal chords has affected his ability to sing in the middle of his range.
Simon & Garfunkel's 1965 recording of 'The Sound of Silence' is a timeless masterpiece, an iconic song that floats beyond the constraints of time and space to become a composition holding a gravitas that far outweighs its origins.
Its origins are certainly not insignificant -- it was written by Paul Simon after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, certainly one of the major turning points in our country's social development from innocent teenager to wizened adult.
