When Simon and Garfunkel's 1964 debut album Wednesday Morning, 3 AM tanked, Paul Simon headed to England alone and began recording and gigging as a solo artist. Right around that time, folk rock was exploding in America. Columbia producer Tom Wilson took Simon and Garfunkel's acoustic "The Sound of Silence" and added in a band, the exact same day he produced "Like a Rolling Stone" for Bob Dylan . The song was one of the biggest hits of 1970, staying at the top of the Hot 100 for six weeks. It also won Grammys for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Art is probably quite glad Paul convinced him to do it.

After the failure of their 1964 debut, Wednesday Morning, 3am, Simon and Garfunkel’s career was shocked back to life by a new, electric version of that album’s The Sound of Silence. From the chaos of Simon and Garfunkel’s imploding relationship came the best album of their career. The gospel-influenced title track is now rightly ubiquitous, and The Only Living Boy in New York – written after Garfunkel flew off to star in a film from which Simon had been dumped – is the most beautiful display of passive aggression ever committed to music.

There were numerous similar album series in existence in the 1970s, put out by other labels. These include 12 Tops on the Stereo Gold Award record label, Hot Hits on the Music for Pleasure label, 16 Chart Hits on the Contour label, and Parade of Pops on the Windmill label (and, later, the Chevron label), plus several others. Some of these were also commercially successful.
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel are one of the best-known duos in music history, thanks to several amazing songs. It's somewhat amusing how Simon & Garfunkel have 15 compilation albums out there now, after just the five studio albums. There are also four live albums and three box sets for fans to devour. It's just more testament to the band's lasting presence in the hearts, minds and souls of worldwide music fans. The rhythm is unforgettable, and it's still a great song to close your eyes and sing along with today. 8. "Bridge Over Troubled Water": The title track to the aforementioned 1970 studio album, this is perhaps one of the duo's best-known songs. Somehow, it won five Grammy Awards in 1971 all by itself. How is that even possible?
by Simon & Garfunkel. Album: Bridge Over Troubled Water (1970). Charted: 6 7. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. The opening guitar lick came courtesy of the session player Fred Carter J. who Simon hired to play on the track. Simon would often use another guitarist to augment his sound. This song was recorded about a year before the album was released. Bob Dylan recorded a version of this on his 1970 album Self Portrait. More songs from Simon & Garfunkel. You can also here the looser sound when both Paul and Art sing the line together because they smiled over the error. Although this mistake is there, it does not take away from the impact they have.
