Simon & Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme




Simon & Garfunkel's classic album Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, released in 1966, marked the duo's emergence as both a brilliant creative force and one of the era's biggest-selling recording acts. The pair's third album, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme 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 & Garfunkel standards as "Homeward Bound," "Scarborough Fair" and "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)."
