Renowned today for his piano treatises, he was also a prolific composer in almost every genre, but it is the music for his own instrument that has aroused the most curiosity.

After the release of “Sounds Of Silence,” Simon & Garfunkel spent more time developing their next album. The result was “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme,” a music masterpiece. On “Scarborough Fair/Canticle,” the duo used vocal overdubs and instrumentation to weave together a traditional song and anti-war protest to stunning effect. The album also includes classics like “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy),” “Cloudy,” “Homeward Bound,” and “For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her.” It was reissued in 2001 with additional demo versions of “Patterns” and “A Poem On The Underground Wall.”
