You can almost hear Simon & Garfunkel begin to like each other again on this now-legendary set. On September 19, 1981, the duo reunited for just the second time since their initial breakup and revealed a camaraderie that had apparently vanished years earlier. Not only do they reprise their shared hits, they also work in a few of Paul Simon's solo gems and a couple of telling covers — one from the Everly Brothers and one from Chuck Berry. The band includes the best session men around. By the time they get to the sincerity of "Old Friends" and the joy of "The 59th Street Bridge Song," you sense a relationship fully repaired. After this success, they even planned a studio record together — one that eventually became Simon's overlooked Hearts and Bones — few were surprised when it did not come to pass.

Don't be disappointed if you didn't make the concert. Place it on the turntable and you'll find yourself on the front row. There's a reason it's on the TAS list. Phenomenal!


Exceptional!!

This is right up there amongst the best live performances ever! The music is great, the recording is in another league altogether. While this is the only pressing I have heard, the sound is as open as it gets, the soundstage is HUGE, with spectacular dynamics and crystal clear resolution. This is better than most studio recordings I have heard.........brilliant!
