While it is certainly not their "greatest" album, this little gem remains my favorite Simon & Garfunkle album. It has a passionate innocence that belongs very much to its time period of the early 1960's.
Only four songs on it were written by Simon, a big difference from their later work where virtually everything was written by him.
Many of these songs paint wonderful word pictures:
"Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" is a very naive but beautiful plea for world peace. "Guns and swords and uniforms were scattered on the ground".
"Bleeker Street" is a wonderful bit of poetry about life in Greenwich Village. "The fog rolls in off the East River...I saw a shadow touch a shadow's hand on Bleeker Street..."
"Sparrow" is an allegory, almost a biblical parable, on Humanity's penchant for abandoning those in need. "Who will love a little sparrow?...'Not I', said the golden wheat, 'I would if I could, but I cannot, I know...'"
"Benedictus" is a Latin prayer...no word picture here, but I love Latin chant, and this is an interesting interpretation.
"The Sounds of Silence" is surely one of their greatest works and this is the original acoustic version. The best version I feel!
"Peggy-O" is an old, traditional folk song, known by a number of names. Joan Baez recorded it as "Fennario" and the Clancy Brothers released it as "The Maid of Fife". It is Irish in origin, but has been modified as it moved from country to country. All three versions I mentioned are somewhat different, but all are clearly the same basic song.

First of all, I've got to get this off my shoulders: pay NO attention to the star rating. Looks like I can't get around it, but really, my star ratings don't mean much by themselves-it's all in the review here what I really think. OK, that being said, this album is a must for any Simon and Garfunkel fan. Their first album as S&G, it's unfortunate that this gem is, in my opinion, somewhat underexposed. It's an almost motley array of completely acoustic folk music, but there is enough really strong, beautiful material on here to hold it all together. Let's go over what's on here, shall we?
If you can manage to put all the existing circumstances out of your mind for a moment, "You Can Tell the World" S&G do a stirring, soulful rendition of this folksy, gospel-y, upbeat tune. Forget the overly harsh criticism you may have heard on this song-it's great music, pure and simple. "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" is a somewhat more benign rendition of an old 60s-classic. I got a kick out of the atypical instrumentals on this, but it's not really my favorite sounding song on this album. (Though they do a fine job with it.) "Bleeker Street" is, I believe, the most under-appreciated and wonderful song here. It's very "Paul Simon-ish"-you know immediately who wrote this powerful and understated song. It's just beautiful is all, the harmonies sounding especially great on this song. "Sparrow" is another similarly identifiable song, and I especially love the last verse. It's another powerful and wonderfully simple song by the time you get to the end. "Benedictus" is very well sung, though it perhaps feels somewhat out of place although the album is somewhat eclectic.

This collection of music is as good as any Simon & Garfunkel album out there (and perhaps better than most).
First of all everything is acoustic. No synthesizers, no electric guitars. There is no sound on this CD that isn't pure and natural. Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel harmonize as well as anyone in the last 100 years of professional singing/songwriting.
Speaking of songwriting, the lyrics herein are permeated with smooth poetry and sometimes abstract symbolism which proves to be very puzzling. Even Art Garfunkel himself describes the song, "Bleecker Street" as "highly intellectual, the symbolism extremely challenging." And yet "Bleecker Street" is still one of the sweetest-sounding songs on here.
My personal favorite song on here is "You Can Tell the World". This is a lot more of a Gospel song. It talks about "My Lord" who "talked about the Children of Israel" and "talkin' about a man from Galilee". Near the end they sing, "Now the Jordan River is chilly and wide...I got a home on the other side." And each chorus ends with "He brought joy, joy, joy into my heart."
If your musical interests ever overlap Oldies, Folk, or Christian, then this is a wonderful CD to own and listen to to pieces.

Wednesday Morning 3 A.M., Simon and Garfunkel's debut album, is a far cry from Bridge Over Troubled Water. It's a traditional folk album, entirely acoustic, consisting of traditional folk and gospel songs with a few Simon originals. It's very different from the more pop-oriented folk rock that would come later, but this is a very good debut. If you like folk music, and/or the beautiful harmonies and Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, you should like this album. But beware it's probably not as accessible as Bookends or Bridge Over Troubled Water.
