Leaving aside the fact that the 40th anniversary was actually last year,this is a fine package.
It comes with an excellent 24 page booklet,a second disc of concert performances plus a DVD that includes a brand-new documentary. Please note the live disc has been previously released before as "Live 1969".
The documentary was originally banned in many states in the US because of its references to The Vietnam War. Its well worth seeing.
The original Album is of course a classic. Its beautifully remastered and sounds as melodic as ever. A must-have Album for any true lover of beautifully crafted pop music. Paul and Art were never better. No wonder it topped the UK charts for a total of 33 weeks !

It goes without saying that this album is one of the classic albums of all time, with almost every track a household name. 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' was one of the biggest (if not the biggest) selling albums of the 1970's, and still outsells many of its peers to this day. Paul Simon created a behemoth of an album when he set about trying to outdo his achievements on 'Bookends', and the resulting album cost Simon and Garfunkel their creative (and personal) partnership.
The tracks on this album are as varied as they are original, probably the main reason for the album's hugely broad and enduring appeal. Garfunkel's musical contribution (by this stage) was largely as backing vocalist to Simon's all-encompassing talent, but ironically it is Garfunkel who stole the show with what must rank as his greatest achievement, being the tour-de-force vocal on the opening title track. Aside from that, and 'So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright', you don't hear much from him again. Even 'Why Don't You Write Me' has Simon doing his own backing vocals...
But Simon's contribution to this album is not just in the writing, but in the performance as well. The timeless classic 'The Boxer' (a song that has kept millions of buskers in business) ranks as one of his greatest tracks, and rivals (or surpasses in my opinion) anything that Bob Dylan ever penned. With a rivetting narrative and thrilling climax (akin to the likes of The Beatles 'Hey Jude'), this song more than any other stands out as the true lead track of the album. 'The Only Living Boy In New York' sees what Simon and Garfunkel (used to) do best... vocal harmonies. The sense of loneliness described in the lyric is emphasised brilliantly through the airy, choral sound of the harmonies in this song.

A review for the 2011 2 cd+dvd deluxe edition...

This is such a great reissue from Sony Legacy. Simon & Garfunkel's classic album from 1970 given the full deluxe treatment and what a treat it is. There's a major difference between this EU release and it's stateside cousin. The USA issue is only two discs. The remastered album and the dvd containing the controversial period tv special "Songs Of America" plus a newly produced 2010 documentary "The Harmony Game", featuring interviews and reminiscing from all persons involved in creating this landmark album. Whilst the tv special is vintage and has been restored from the two best available tape sources, it definitely belongs in 1970. The new documentary, on the other hand, is a fascinating insight into the working and sometimes fractured relationship that Simon & Garfunkel lived through to create some of the most timeless music in recent pop history. I love hearing about the recording process and this doco doesn't disappoint. So what's the difference between the two editions?

The extra disc of the EU release is the previously unreleased cd "Live 1969". Though this title has been available in the USA for a couple of years (exclusively through a coffee shop chain for the first year), it makes its rest of the world debut in this set. Taped at a variety of shows while they were recording the "Bridge Over.." album, it's a fascinating snapshot of how the group would've sounded had they continued after BOTW's release. For some of these songs it's the first time they have been performed in front of an audience and it's also the first tour to feature backing musicians.

Easily their classiest album and such a great swansong too. Paul Simon was to go onto a remarkable solo career after this and that whole chapter is worth an entirely separate discussion. Here he and Garfunkel get together one last time and produce a masterpiece.
The album from 1970 is so choc-a-bloc full of classics that it is hard to know where to begin. Well, with the title track of course. A gorgeous piano-based ballad with a tune to match and a truly uplifting lyric. Paul Simon has said he was forced into writing a third verse but it doesn’t show, in fact the build up towards the end of the song with rousing harmonies and then Garfunkel’s passionate closing vocal is just sublime. How many singers can reach those notes? No wonder you can count the cover versions of this classic on one hand. El Condor Pasa again carries an infectious and beautiful tune and uses the South American pipes nicely, something Simon would expolore more on his first solo album two years later.
’Cecilia’ is a joyful romp with a levity which belies the sad lyric about infedility and loss. The next track ’Keep The Customer Satisfied’ is a minor masterpiece, with an amusing lyric and a fun tune. On any other album of theirs it would be a stand out. Here there so many classics (see how they shine!) that it’s a lot harder. The closing number on Side 1 (vinyl) is a remarkable tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright. It is beautiful. Garfunkel sings the lead perfectly and is perfectly complimented by Simon for the ’architects may come and architects may go’ section.
Then we come to The Boxer which is a bona fide classic in anyone’s book. OK so maybe the lai le lai section goes on a tad too long? Controversial I know.
