By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 19 Jan. 2005
Format: Audio CD
With such classic songs as Scarborough fair / Canticle (a major American hit), Homeward bound (the only UK hit from the album, this was a ten hit on both sides of the Atlantic), For Emily wherever I may find her (sung solo by Art) and the 59th street bridge song - Feeling groovy (a hit for Harper's Bizarre in the UK and USA), this is yet another masterpiece from Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel.
The famous songs already mentioned are available on countless hits compilations of their music, so if you are thinking of buying this, it is because you want to hear the other songs. They are all of a high quality, notably Cloudy (with its incredible imagery), Big bright green pleasure machine (about TV advertising) and Dangling conversation (about cocktail party gossip).
Yet the most notable track of all may be 7 o'clock news / Silent night. With a peaceful Christmas carol as background, this track reflects on the state of the world back then as relayed in news bulletins. Of course, news bulletins generally focus on problems and tragedies, so a piece like this could have been recorded at any time. Despite world progress, news bulletins are always full of despair, never more so than while I am writing this, soon after the Indian Ocean earthquake.
If you are interested in more than just their hits, this Simon and Garfunkel album is definitely worth a listen.

I updated my collection of S&G music a couple of years ago, by purchasing the Definitive collection through Amazon ( I had this on tape) and Bridge Over Troubled Water on remastered CD, i read somewhere that Parsley Sage Rosemary & Thyme was an album you had to hear, so I ordered a copy, despite having the 'singles'. The whole album is amazing, i am boring my entire family by raving on about it and playing it to death. I love it all , but particulary at the moment 'Patterns' and 'Flowers Never Bend With the Rainfall' It is pure pleasure, the sixties relaxed folk rock sound in every song and yet another example of Paul Simon's genius.

A Truly wonderful album which just displays a feel for the time and place.From the Opening of Scarborough Fair to the beautiful Joys of Cloudy and the upbeat tempo of The 59th Street bridge song its as if you have been transported back to the sixties.Also included on the album is their top five hit Homeward Bound.A personal Favourite is The Dangling Conversation with its account of a couple drifting apart.The album ends with 7 O clock/Silent night.A grim reminder of the times that were being lived and a big comment on the state of America in 1966.The Bonus tracks of Patterns and A poem on the Underground wall showcase Paul Simons Raw and Personal direction.A great album.

Hugely popular at the time but, as with much of Simon & Garfunkle's work, now increasingly consigned to the "interesting time-piece" category, "Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Time" is quite simply one of the best albums from the 60's. If you haven't listened to it recently, get out your old copy and prepare to be amazed at the quality of the songs, the complexity and superb metering of their lyrics and the often stunningly beautiful singing - captured at its finest in the breathtakingly poignant "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her". Sure, a couple of tracks sound pretty dated and a couple fall into the easy-listening "rock-pop" category, but most have a timeless clarity and sincerity that few of their contemporaries and equally few artists since then have mastered. And... if you don't own it but want to discover how good poetry set to music can be, well, it doesn't get much better.

"Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme" was the first big breakthrough album for Simon & Garfunkel as artists. Although their first two albums certainly showed promise, there was a big difference with this 1966 album. The difference was that this time Simon & Garfunkel, along with engineer Roy Halee, had total control in the making of the album. Given that their other 1966 album, "The Sounds of Silence," had been thrown together in less than a month to take advantage of the hot single, this makes a big difference. Just compare the horrible overdubbing of "The Songs of Silence" single with basically anything on this album, but especially with the opening track, "Scarborough Fair/Canticle."
This was an album that would appeal to college students, with the literary rock of "Dangling Conversation," the caustic commentary of "A Simple Desultory Philippic (or How I was Robert McNamara'd into Submission)," and the simple juxtaposition of the duo singing "Silent Night" to a piano accompaniment juxtaposed against the headlines from the Nightly News (including the death of Lenny Bruce and the escalation of the war in Vietnam) on the album's final track, "7 O'Clock News/Silent Night." College students would also appreciate the sentiments of "Homeward Bound," the attack on television as "The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine," one of the decade's great feel-good songs, "59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)," and the drama of "Poem on the Underground Wall."
But as much as I like the opening track and "Homeward Bound," the song that puts this over the top is the simply beautiful "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her." There was a time in high school when that was my favorite song, and I did not even know a girl named Emily.
