Simon and Garfunkel In Central Park Redux + Wax
Quintessential New Yorkers Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel played to a half million in Central Park 34 years ago, September 19, 1981. The previously out-of-print recording of the event is back, as are vinyl versions of all their studio albums. Both have their own gigs in town next month… the last time Simon and Garfunkel played together was in 2010. Flashback to my scribbling about the New Orleans set from that year and to the only gig after that described here by Andy Greene of Rolling Stone who also explains about Art’s vocal chord condition.
