"Simply stated, anybody who's a fan of Art Garfunkel (and Paul Simon as well), will not be disappointed. An excellent (and amazingly cheap!) buy."

"I loved this cd. It has some of the favorites, but many unknown songs. My favorite is Grateful - so beautiful."

"Simon and ???
Art Garfunkel, still has to deal with the fact that he was the "other" guy who stood on stage and made all those great records with Paul Simon between 1957 and 1969. Artie, is much more than just the "other" guy, he is a fantasic singer and a great performer in his own right. Go name another pop singer that spent many years walking across America. Art Garfunkel, did accomplish this amazing feat, this gifted man is really something special.

This CD is from two performances at Ellis Island in April 1996. Half of the 16 tracks on this CD are from the sixties and Artie's time as one half of S & G, the others are culled from his wonderful pop records of the seventies and eighties. The band is led by Eric {"Dueling Banjos"} Weisberg and is a brisk mix of guitars, keyboards, saxophone and percussion. Mrs. Kim Cermak Garfunkel: provides vocal harmonies and James Taylor duets with Art on "Crying In The Rain." James Garfunkel, sings a "fuzzy-hair" duet with his dad on the crowd-pleasing classic: "Feelin' Groovy."

I attended one of Art's concerts in 1999, and I was not prepared for the excellence of this performer. We have one of America's greatest voices, right here. Art Garfunkel, should be mentioned along side the finest American vocalists of our time, he is one of the great ones. Yes, we have all listened to: "Bridge Over Troubled Water" a few hundred times since 1969, but it is still something to hear this man sing it. "Bright Eyes" is one of the best pop songs ever produced, "Grateful" is a tune, that I was unaware of, it is magnificent and very moving, why wasn't it a big hit single?

Art Garfunkel, can certainly hold his own on disc, or on the concert is the evidence. Travel across America, right in your favorite comfortable place, but you can't accomplish that journey without this great CD.
