Simon & Garfunkel - Greatest hits LP
Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits is the first compilation album from Simon & Garfunkel, released in June 1972, two years after the duo had split.
The album was a mix of original studio recordings and four previously unreleased live recordings. The remaining ten studio songs comprise nine singles released between 1965 and 1972, "America" being issued as a single several years after its appearance as a track on the Bookends album, and one album track, "Bookends" (without its parent song "Old Friends").
All the singles included, except "America," "El Condor Pasa (If I Could)," and "Scarborough Fair/Canticle" made the Top Ten, with the last peaking at #11, and "Mrs. Robinson" topped the chart aided by its appearance in Mike Nichols' hit movie The Graduate. "The Sound of Silence" and "Bridge over Troubled Water" both peaked at #1 as singles in their studio versions, and "The Boxer" peaked as a single at #7.
In 2003, the album was ranked number 293 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
