you know...i've always liked the harmonizing with these two. they did some fine songs together. and while i believe paul simon was to write his best stuff after these two split...i have to ask a question. did art garfunkel have the easiest job in the history of popular music? did he get a free ride on paul simon's talent?

Paul Simon/Simon & Garfunkel are probably my next favorite artist/artists after The Beatles.
As far as his/their best works...I'd go, in no particular order with S & G albums listed first, followed by Simon solo albums.

Tier I: Bridge Over Troubled Water; Bookends; Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme/ Graceland; Rhythm Of The Saints; Hearts & Bones; Surprise
Tier II: Sounds Of Silence/ Paul Simon; There Goes Rhymin'' Simon; Still Crazy After All These Years
Tier III: One Trick Pony; You're The One; ***The Paul Simon Songbook (early S & G era solo album)
Tier IV: Songs From The Capeman
Tier V: Wednesday Morning 3 a.m.
I really dig the "Angel Clare" by Garfunkel. "Watermark" is pretty good too, and "Breakaway" isn't bad either. I'm curious to hear his latest album of all standards sometime too.
As far as live albums go...S & G- "The Concert In Central Park" & "Live 1969" are both top shelf as are Paul Simon's "The Concert In The Park" & "Live Rhymin'"!!
Blessings

I wouldn't say Artie has the easiest job. He puts a lot into his singing, and while Paul may have written better songs later, Artie's voice always makes his stuff sound better. Even the solo songs that he added his voice to in the Central Park concert. His contribution was invaluable, but he was always underrated and always in Paul's shadow. Putting up with Simon's ego can't have been easy. (Simon admits it, too!)
