Simon & Garfunkel - Green Leaves And Yellow Skies: Hollywood Bowl 1968 (Limited Edition, Black Vinyl, 2 LP) ((Vinyl))
DELUXE DOUBLE VINYL EDITION!!!
Bookends, the fourth of five Simon & Garfunkel albums to be released during their initial tenure, came out in April 1968 to rapturous critical reception and substantial sales. The record took the Best Album Grammy at the 1969 ceremony and has remained to be seen as the duo’s breakthrough set, containing as it does ‘Mrs. Robinson’. Paul and Art had been performing sporadically during the early months of ’68, with odd shows on both coasts of the US during January and February, and three gigs in the UK during early March. Back in the States by the end of March, and further one-offs through to August, when they played four consecutive concerts before coming off the road for a couple of months. Two shows in New York and one in Arizona were followed by their finest concert of the year which took place at the Hollywood Bowl on 23rd of August. This Double LP features S&G’s entire set performed in Hollywood that late-summer evening more than 50 years ago, a superb gig recorded for FM Radio broadcast.
