2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing effort, 10 Jan. 2003
By 
This review is from: Across America (Audio CD)
Art Garfunkel is one of the world's great male singers but it is not captured here.
The album is a live recording from an American tour in the late 1990s. The real problem is the production. It has been recorded as if it is heard from some way away so the backing track can rather drown out the vocal track. Also, rather than mixing one song into the next with crowd applause, most tracks are faded out, often before the end of the song or the beginning if the applause. This makes it disjointed.
All the right songs are there. Unfortunately Art seems to be playing to a home audience and being rather indulgent. He doesn't sound like he's made much effort in his singing.
There must surely be a better live release soon.
