    PBS is playing their 1981 Central Park concert. I never get tired of that incredible harmony.

    Love me some Simon & Garfunkle. And it's super applicable because tonight I wish I was homeward bound.

    Now it's making me sad, but in a good way. The feelings are helping me write. I'm working one more time on my first chapter.

    I cannot believe how beautiful Garfunkel's voice is, angelic. Not that Simon's voice isn't as good. His voice sounds like home to me.

    "This place makes me sad. I love it."
    "Why would you want to be sad?"
    "It's like happy for deep people."

    A Most Peculiar Man has got to be the saddest S&G song. I love it so much. Also, the wistful melancholy of Dangling Conversations...*sigh*

    Have you heard of The Milk Carton Kids? They are a duo with a very distinct Simon and Garfunkle feeling to them. Of course, nothing beats the old masters, but these guys are quite excellent and not well known, which is better.

    Gosh they sound a lot like S&G. Thanks, I'll have to listen to a bit more of them.

    This is an entire concert. Feel free to skip around.

    Simon and Garfunkle really stood out at the time they were popular and generating those wonderful songs. Their poetry was sophisticated, the melodies were lovely, and the singing really couldn't be ignored. While I was a huge fan of other sixties groups, especially the British Invasion, I always had time for Simon and Garfunkle, and owned most of their albums.

    Milk Carton Kids? Yes, not only do they sound a lot like S & G, but I suspect that's deliberate on their part. They are pleasant to listen to, but I don't think they stand out the way S & G did. And maybe I'm showing my age, but don't they MUMBLE. Can only understand every other word sometimes. Their poetry may be stellar, but it's not coming through for me.

    I became acquainted with MCK when a YouTube video was forwarded to me by a friend in the USA ...listen to these guys. Well, I did listen to them, but what struck me instead was the quality and personability of their 'backing band' on that video track. But who is that band, I asked myself.

    Thus was born my near addiction to The Punch Brothers! I'm too old to throw underwear, but man, I do love those guys!

    One of my fave S&G songs.



    And Andy Williams joining them for a very nice rendition of S Fair.

    I prefer the incredible harmony between Paul Simon and Ms. Piggy
