Simon & Garfunkel: Simon And Garfunkel's Greatest Hits

Simon & Garfunkel: Simon And Garfunkel's Greatest Hits
January 22nd, 1985

First released in 1972, this compilation album remains one of the favorites in Simon & Garfunkel's catalog. In the same month that the Greatest Hits was released, Simon & Garfunkel performed a reunion concert to benefit the presidential campaign of Sen. George McGovern. Rather than release a straightforward greatest hits album to coincide with the concert, they instead opted to include live versions of some of their most personal songs. At that time, Simon & Garfunkel had not yet released a live album, and the inclusion of those few live tracks helped push the album to the Top 5 on the U.S. albums chart. The Greatest Hits' success was all the more remarkable because Simon & Garfunkel's previous five studio albums were still selling at a strong pace, indicating how much they were missed since breaking up two years earlier.
