Art Garfunkel - Discography - 320kbps

Art Garfunkel - Discography

After Simon & Garfunkel, one of the most successful duos in pop history, split up in 1970, Art Garfunkel became a solo artist, as well as pursuing an acting career. Garfunkel's pure, high tenor had been one of the most distinctive elements of the duo's music, yet he wasn't responsible for the song writing -- Simon wrote all of the group's hits. Not surprisingly, Garfunkel relied on other songwriters, from Jimmy Webb and Randy Newman, in addition to rock & roll standards like "I Only Have Eyes for You," throughout his solo career. As a solo performer, he was never quite as successful as he was with Simon & Garfunkel, yet he did have a number of Top 40 hits in the mid-'70s.

I'm happy Art got a chance to flourish somewhat as a solo artist. I don't think he was getting the same industry backing and encouragement as Paul Simon. While not a major seller or songwriter, Art does have good name recognition and with the right tune/arrangement his music is really memorable. I have never been able to decide though if I like Art's version of "Breakaway" or the the Gallagher & Lyle version better. They both are similar but good in their own way. Thanks for this collection OG.

Gotta agree. I got very tired of Simon after they split up, but Garfunkle's solo work was always a revelation. Thanks OG
