After recording their final studio album in 1969, Art Garfunkel left the only living boy in New York to start his short lived movie career. And though his parts went fine (especially his role as Sandy opposite Jack Nicholson in the film Carnal Knowledge) at some point he returned to the studio in 1972 with new songwriting partner Jimmy Webb (National Academy of Songwriters Lifetime Achievement Award Winner 1993) to lay down the tracks for his first solo album Angel Clare.
With a slew of hits to follow, Art recorded five more studio albums before the release of this 1989 Greatest Hits Collection simply entitled Garfunkel. His melancholy vocal style, matched with angelic tenor leads and a great sense of harmony are yet to be matched in the pop music arena. And though some of the selections contained here may be a bit dated, Art does them in a way that would make even the worst critics regret the lost lover of forgotten days.
This compilation includes the Top 10 hit "All I Know" which has been re-recorded by over twenty different artists. The song "Bright Eyes" was used as the theme song for the 1978 film Watership Down. Art gets by with a little help from his friends, James Taylor and Paul Simon on Sam Cook's Wonderful World, which may pay homage to the early years in Tom and Jerry. And "A Heart in New York" possibly the track that got Paul Simon interested in the 1981 Simon and Garfunkel reunion.

Worth the investment for the redo of the Sam Cooke song, "What a Wonderful World" only. The song is sung in tandem with James Taylor - they should have done a ton of songs together - they harmonize beautifully.

If you're a true Art Garfunkel fan then you will want this in your collection as it is a treasure of Art's music post Simon and Garfunkel.

GREAT CD. I'VE OWN IT SINCE ITS RELEASE. I JUST WANTED A FRESH ONE. ONE OF (IF NOT THE BEST) GREAT VOICES IN THE HISTORY OF ROCK. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HIM TOUR W/ BUNLOCK & SHARPE AGAIN THAT WAS MEMORABLE

Purchased it for the song"So Much In Love". He does a super job on it, right up there with Timmony B. Schmidt classic version.

This is a great CD of some of Art Garfunkel's best songs. Love all the songs on it especially "So Much In Love". He does a beautiful version of that song.

Even the songs that weren't hits are good on this album. If you came of age in the late 60's, early 70's, add this to your collection.
