Simon & Garfunkel

Live 1969 (Columbia/Legacy)

Recorded but (until now) never released spin-off from the projected Bridge Over Troubled Water tour, these 59 minutes preview an upcoming LP that proved the factious duo's last until 1982's equally capsule-worthy The Concert in Central Park. "Bridge" bristles then breaches "The Sound of Silence," crashing valiantly into "I Am a Rock," after which Simon & Garfunkel coast it home having once again proved their enduring Everly-hood.
