Classic Rock Corner: Simon and Garfunkel's Live 1969
When Art Garfunkel tells audiences on he and Paul Simon's 1969 tour that the duo has just finished a new album, those clapping had no clue that by the time Bridge Over Troubled Water came out, the former childhood friends would have split acrimoniously and wouldn't regularly share the stage for another 13 years.
Elsewhere, Simon and Garfunkel - reportedly mullingone final reunion jaunt,
according toRolling Stone
- break out some catalogue rarities such as "Song for the Asking," a jaunty "Why Don't You Write Me" and "Leaves That are Green," as well as a fine cover of Gene Autry's "That Silver Haired Daddy of Mine." Bottom line: Live 1969 is for the listener already an S&G fan, and provides a great glimpse of the pair at a creative peak but personal valley.
