CD Review: Art Garfunkel

The Singer (Columbia/Legacy)

by

comment

Paul Simon's erstwhile partner didn't have much of a solo career once the duo broke up. And for good reason: Simon wrote all of their greatest songs and provided grounded harmony to Garfunkel's angelic choirboy voice. That's not to say that the 34 songs on this two-disc career overview are bad; they just don't have much force without Simon. The handful of Simon & Garfunkel hits on The Singer are the highlights.
