Over The Bridge Of Time: A Paul Simon Retrospective

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Released as a companion to Legacy's Complete Album Collection, Over the Bridge of Time: A Paul Simon Retrospective (1964-2011) condenses a five-decade career into 20 tracks. That's hardly enough to contain all the hits, so the compilers have opted for a mini-biography, tracing Simon's evolution from Simon & Garfunkel to the restless bard of the new millennium.
