SIMON & GARFUNKEL - "Sounds Of Silence" (CBS BPG 62690) January 1966
Quite possibly my most played album since discovering it in my mid teens. Recently I set about securing MONO releases of this and their next album "Parsley, Sage Rosemary & Thyme"
The songs were mostly recorded during April - June 1965 but the album took an age (by sixties standards) to get a release, eventually coming out at the start of January '66.
Check out "Blessed" also recorded and released as a single by The Tremeloes.
"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit...
Blessed is the lamb, whose blood flows...
Blessed are the sat upon, spat upon, ratted on...
Oh Lord, why have you forsaken me?"
