Simon & Garfunkel – Live From New York City, 1967

24 09 2010

Listened: Friday September 3

Mrs. Robinson is a good song, but it’s nice to hear Simon and Garfunkel perform in a time before they were so well known for the music from the Graduate.

Even though many interesting and profound “60s things” had already happened before January 1967 when this was recorded, there were so many things yet to happen in “the 60s” as we think of them. When I hear this, I’m amazed how incredibly young and innocent it sounds. Also, how in love the audience is with the performers; they laugh appreciatively at anything the duo does. It reminds me Bob Dylan’s Live 1964 album.
