I bought this CD last week and havent stopped playing it since. As a Paul Simon/Simon & Garfunkel fan since i discovered them as a 12 yearold in 1980, this CD is incredible. The quality for a 35 year old recording is astounding. And the range of songs throws up a load of unusual tunes as the concert took place when they only had three albums released. With two men, one guitar, one stage and an entralled audience and great versions of A most peculiar man, Richard Cory, Hazy shade of winter and a new song never before released called where your interest lies, this is a must for all S&G fans. The chat in between songs is also very enjoyable and witty. The guy in the last release was saying it would be better if more songs were added but there wasnt anymore to add, this is the entire concert. In the 60's concerts never lasted more than an hour anyway. On headphones you have Paul Simon in your left ear, Art in your right and the harmonies are just beautiful.
So come home some night late, turn off the light, plug in the headphones, put on the CD and lie back and close your eyes. Bring yourself back to the 60's and hear some great acoustic versions of S&G classics and other songs you never hear live. A lot of people think Bob Dylan was the greatest American folk/poet of the 60's, for me, no one touches Paul Simon, just listen to A poem on the underground wall.

Anybody with a passing interest in Simon & Garfunkel will not be disappointed with this new release from Sony's Legacy label; fans who have all the releases may feel that a little more could have been offered. The CD itself is of the quality you would expect of a remastered concert from 1967, and the liner notes are suitably evocative. The actual concert pre-dates S&G's rise to superstardom, and as such does not include what many people who own Greatest Hits albums, would know as their more well known songs: no 'Mrs.Robinson', 'The Boxer', 'Bridge', or 'America'. However, this should not be seen as a negative, as it allows the duo to showcase their more folkly Everly Brothers roots.
Four tracks have already appeared on the 'Old Friends' box set, and at just under an hour, it may be suggested that a few more tracks could have been included.
But don't let this put you off, this in an excellent, if long overdue addition to the brief cannon of work of an underappreciated, yet important '60's group.

Format: Audio CD
The sonic quality of this recording is amazing. Fair enough, one doesn't need 64-track technology to record 2 voices and a guitar (and the audience) but nevertheless, the standards that were employed to produce this recording were of the highest.

The performance is at turns exciting, funny and moving.
Both singers are in fine voice, notably on 'Benedictus' (first heard on the debut album), taken to a new level here in terms of perfectly matched harmony, melody and counter-melody. Beautiful stuff.

The only low points (and they're not really all that low) are 'Homeward Bound' - Arty strains to get the high notes at times (hear a better live version on the Greatest Hits album) - and 'You Don't Know Where You're Interest Lies', which was only half-developed at the time, and even in its finished state was never the strongest of Simon's songs.

Still, this album is still brilliant, even breathtaking the first couple of times you hear it such is its amazing sound. Put it on, lie back, listen, and (assuming your system is half-decent) you'll be right there.

* Of the earlier reviewer who gave this a low score, lamenting the lack of 'Mrs Robinson' or 'The Boxer' - this performance predates those songs.

This recording from 1967 contains a great selection of early Simon and Garfunkel songs. Art and Paul take turns to introduce the songs, and it is clear that they are enjoying what they are doing. I discovered Simon and Garfunkel after they had release Bridge Over Troubled Water -- and I rememember the excitement of buying the LP "Wednesday Morning 3 a.m." I feel the same excitement listening to this live album. The presentation is simple: two guys and a guitar on stage, singing great songs. You wish you could have been there, to feel the optimism of the sixties. But listening to Simon and Garfunkel is not just about nostalgia: these guys produced superb music, which has stood the test of time. I hope Sony will release more "hidden" material!

This album is superb, and I also recommend the 1969 live recording, bundled with Bridge Over Troubled Water's anniversary edition or available separately.

This concert comprised one guitar and two voices. With such a stripped-back presentation, there's no room for weakness either in the singing or in the playing. And, as we might expect from these two, there are no weaknesses. What comes across is very, very strong. Two voices that complement each other sublimely and guitar playing of the highest order. The harmonies are beautiful and, coupled with lyrics that are meaningful and at times poignant, this is a play-list to treasure.

In 1967, Simon and Garfunkel were playing their earlier material, rooted heavily in the folk tradition and out-doing the Everley brothers who had heavily influenced them in their formative years. (See the 'Old Friends' reunion concerts where they perform as a foursome). There are some very good songs here that were to be dropped from their live repertoire as they expanded their material - songs like 'Richard Cory' and 'A most peculiar man' which I believe have some of the most poignant words ever written.

'Homeward Bound', allegedly written on a railway station, is especially well received by the audience. 'I am a Rock' and 'The Sound of Silence' are classics with 'Sound of Silence' an absolute gem. By the end of this concert the audience is cheering for more.

This recording was made almost fifty years ago. The recording quality is first class and the performances are the early Simon and Garfunkel at their very best. At the price it is one of the best CD bargains you can ever hope to buy. Unhesitatingly, five stars.
