    Simon and Garfunkel --Songs from yesterday for tomorrow

    The 1999 Sony collection of 'The Best of Simon and Garfunkel' was the first CD that I have ever purchased for myself, so it was with great anticipation that I awaited its arrival in the mail, and this anticipation was not unrewarded. When I popped it into my CD player, the gentle tones and subtle harmonies floated through with crystal clarity. The theme of this album is the disassociation and search for meaning that was so prevalent in the late '60's and early '70's, and that still has relevance today. The variance in melodies and variety of compositions makes this hour-long CD a pleasure to listen to.

    A really worthwhile buy!

    I love Simon and Garfunkel. Their songs have lyrics that are meant to be contemplated, not simply listened to. They have none of the trashy stuff that doesn't mean anything. The music is wonderful and the harmonies are sublime. I recommend this to anyone and everyone.

    amazing

    Excellent selection of Paul & Art at their best; it captures their voyage from the folk-y ''Wednesday Morning 3 AM'' to the folk/pop/rock ''Bridge Over Troubled Water.'' Definately worth buying!!
