Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 234/500!
Simon and Garfunkel's classic albums Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme and Bookends, released in 1966 and 1968 respectively, marked the duo's emergence as both a brilliant creative force and one of their era's biggest-selling recording acts.
Bookends, which arrived on the heels of Simon & Garfunkel's high-profile role on the soundtrack of the film The Graduate, is a brilliantly realized tour de force that captures the pleasures, tensions and fears of its era as vividly as any '60s album. Simon's literate, emotionally complex songwriting is matched by the ambitious production, which elevates the fiery folk-rockers "A Hazy Shade of Winter" and "Save the Life of My Child", the cinematic flights "America" and "Fakin' It," the intimate ballads "Old Friends" and "Bookends Theme," and the deceptively whimsical "Mrs. Robinson" and "At the Zoo."
