By Barron Laycock HALL OF FAME on August 5, 2000
Format: Audio CD
I was given this album my first Christmas out of undergraduate school in 1969 by a very special friend, and literally wore the album out before replacing it a few years later. Finally I went to the CD format in the 80s and still love listening to this treasure trove of wonderfully written, masterfully arranged, and brilliantly executed songs by two of the best folk singers to come out of the fabled sixties. Everything here is original, and is produced with a simple and straightforward artistic style that belies its genius. This duo has a way of evoking an atmosphere with a timeless quality in their songs, and that is especially true here with "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", "The 59th Street Bridge Song", and "The Dangling Conversation". Paul Simon writes with a singular sensivity and poignancy here about the alienation and futility of much of contemporary urban life, and in such breath-taking efforts as "7 O'clock News/Silent Night", this is evoked with such beauty and artfulness that one is simply moved by the genius involved here. Quite simply put, this is one of the best albums ever produced, and one that is essential for anyone calling himself a folkie. I highly recommend it, and know that for anyone who is experiencing it for the first time, a special pleasure awaits you. Enjoy!

"Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme" was the first big breakthrough album for Simon & Garfunkel as artists. Although their first two albums certainly showed promise, there was a big difference with this 1966 album. The difference was that this time Simon & Garfunkel, along with engineer Roy Halee, had total control in the making of the album. Given that their other 1966 album, "The Sounds of Silence," had been thrown together in less than a month to take advantage of the hot single, this makes a big difference. Just compare the horrible overdubbing of "The Songs of Silence" single with basically anything on this album, but especially with the opening track, "Scarborough Fair/Canticle."
This was an album that would appeal to college students, with the literary rock of "Dangling Conversation," the caustic commentary of "A Simple Desultory Philippic (or How I was Robert McNamara'd into Submission)," and the simple juxtaposition of the duo singing "Silent Night" to a piano accompaniment juxtaposed against the headlines from the Nightly News (including the death of Lenny Bruce and the escalation of the war in Vietnam) on the album's final track, "7 O'Clock News/Silent Night." College students would also appreciate the sentiments of "Homeward Bound," the attack on television as "The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine," one of the decade's great feel-good songs, "59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)," and the drama of "Poem on the Underground Wall."
But as much as I like the opening track and "Homeward Bound," the song that puts this over the top is the simply beautiful "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her.

This newly remastered and expanded edition of PSR&T is definitely overdue and most welcome. As was evident with the S&G releases of the past couple of years, "Old Friends" and "The Best of", the original master tapes are utilized in the digital transfer for this compact disc. In fact, a few tunes ("Cloudy", The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine", "A Simple Desultory Phillipic" and "Poem On The Underground Wall") run several seconds longer than the original LP versions we've always been used to. And the sound quality is breathtaking! "Patterns", "Pleasure Machine" and "Phillipic" just jump out of the speakers. They're so clean and crisp and bright that it's almost startling! It's a great package too with all of the original artwork and liner notes reproduced, new photos and liner notes, and complete printed lyrics. It's the most exciting reissue I've heard this year.

What can anyone say about this album but WOW?! This is the best S & G album that they made, and although slightly lacking the power of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" it beats it by the sheer number of great songs on there. "Scarborough Fair" is without a doubt the best song on this CD, with the haunting anti-war lyrics. "Homeward Bound" will always stick out in my memory because of its catchy melody and chorus. "The Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine" is a nice break from the rather dreary songs in the beginning. "7 O'Clock News/Silent Night", while dated (people under 30 won't get the full effect), is the most powerful song on this CD, and is only rivaled by "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and "The Boxer". Definitely pick up this CD; it's their best.

This album is magnificant. Many people may say it's "pretentious" or "outdated", but the fact is, it's damn good tunes. I don't think there will be another band quite like S&G. They mixed harmony, melody, and powerfull lyrics to produce some of the all time greatest albums and songs ever. In particular, on PSRT, "The Dangling Conversation", and "Patterns" began to show Paul Simon's outstanding writing ability. He would go on to write many songs using the same type of atmosphere as "Patterns", such as "Duncan" on Simon's first solo effort.
This is an album you can pop in, sit back, and dream to. Every song paints a remarkable picture that was never duplicated by any other band, not even S&G themselves. For all it's critics, I say, forget about the "Psychoanalytical" aspects of this album, and just listen. Just listen to the music. I know that you will view it in the same manner as I do, perfect.
BUY THIS ALBUM AT ALL COSTS, and then go out and by some Simon albums (I recomend "Hearts and Bones"), and The White album, cause those are the only albums that can stand up to PSRT.
