Simon & Garfunkel's first masterpiece, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme was also the first album on which the duo, in tandem with engineer Roy Halee, exerted total control from beginning to end, right down to the mixing, and it is an achievement akin to the Beatles' Revolver or the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds album, and just as personal and pointed as either o. And the last of Simon's English-period songs, "A Poem on the Underground Wall," seemed to sum up the tightrope walk that the duo did at almost every turn on this record at this point in their career - built around a beautiful melody and gorgeous hooks, it was, nonetheless, a study in personal privation and desperation, the "sound of silence". heard from the inside out, a voice crying out.
At first, the album didn’t attract much attention, so Simon went to England, where he played on the British folk circuit, while Garfunkel went off to grad school at Columbia University. Then in 1965 a Boston radio station began playing one of the album’s songs, The Sounds of Silence. The following January, the song hit Number One on the Billboard charts. Rumors of a more lasting collaboration were deflated when Simon erased Garfunkel’s harmony vocals from Hearts and Bones (1983), releasing it as a solo album instead. However, the duo came together again for several charity shows in the early Nineties, and in 1993 they embarked on a twenty-one night stand at New York’s Paramount Theater, as well as a tour of the Far East.
