Simon and Garfunkel – Bridge Over Troubled Water (2021 Reissue on Transparent Vinyl)
Bridge Over Troubled Water is the fifth and final studio album by Simon and Garfunkel, released on 26 January 1970. With the help of producer Roy Halee, the album followed a similar musical pattern as Bookends, partly abandoning their traditional style to incorporate elements of rock, R&B, gospel, jazz, world music, pop and other genres. It was described as their 'most effortless record and their most ambitious'.
Contemporary critical reception to Bridge Over Troubled Water was initially mixed, but retrospective reviews of the album have been laudatory, and it is considered by many to be the duo’s best album. Despite numerous accolades, the duo decided to split up, and parted company later in 1970.
Bridge Over Troubled Water includes two of the duo’s most critically acclaimed and commercially successful songs, the title track and The Boxer, which were listed on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Critically and commercially successful, the album topped the charts in over ten countries and received two Grammy Awards, plus four more for the title song.
