专辑简介:

对很多人来说,'知己良朋' 比世界上任何一样东西还要珍贵,若果有两个人从小学就开始认识,有共同音乐兴趣,充满才华,后来更加成为举世瞩目的二人组合,就真的令人羡慕。这个组合就是在60年代走红,近代音乐史上最成功丶最有影响力丶最完美的二重唱组合 'Simon & Garfunkel'。

原名Paul Frederic Simon的 Paul Simon及 原名Arthur Ira Garfunkel的Art Garfunkel同是在1941年出世。Paul Simon是在1941年10月13日在美国New Jersey新泽西州出世,Art Garfunkel是在1941年11月5日在美国New York纽约州出世,亦即系话Paul Simon比Art Garfunkel系大23日。

出世后不久,Paul Simon一家人就搬去New York纽约,住的地方同Art Garfunkel的屋企只系相差3条街,大家都系Public School 164同一间小学的同学,那个时候大家已开始认识,但第一次的合作原来就系当他们读紧第6班Sixth Grade的时候,一齐参与学校的一个话剧表演 'Alice in Wonderland' 爱丽斯梦游仙境,Paul Simon就做White Rabbit小白兔,Art Garfunkel就做Cheshire Cat猫。

跟着他们就开始夹歌,时常都会在学校的聚会表演,他们出的第一只唱片的歌曲就是在1957年的 'Hey, Schoolgirl',那个时候他们才16岁,但用的队名是 'Tom & Jerry',在那个年代,很多歌手艺人都唔会用真实姓名,Tom Graph就系Art Garfunkel,Jerry Landis就系Paul Simon,这只 'Hey, Schoolgirl' 就有两个多月在Billboard流行榜100名内,最高排名系第54位。

但 'Tom & Jerry' 灌录了一批歌曲后,两个就分开了,主要原因据说就系因为Paul Simon自己个人录了一些歌曲,Art Garfunkel知道了后就非常不满,有五年的时间大家就没有通讯及分开了。直至1964年这个经典二人组合才再复合,出了他们用两个人的真名Simon & Garfunkel出的第1张大碟 'Wednesday Morning, 3 AM'。

刚刚提过Paul Simon及Art Garfunkel最初在1957年的组合是叫做'Tom & Jerry',但因为Paul Simon用True Taylor这个名字出了一只自己Solo细碟后,大家就第一次的分开了。跟住Paul Simon就进入了纽约的Queens College,主修英文English;而Art Garfunkel就入了纽约的Columbia University主修建筑Architecture。在这段时间,Art Garfunkel就也曾用 'Artie Garr' 这个名字录过一些 Singles歌曲。 Paul Simon就曾用True Taylor丶Jerry Landis丶Tico & The Triumphs等名字出过一些唱片,更曾经和那时还很年轻的Carole King合作组成 'The Cosines' 写了一些Demos歌曲给唱片公司,后来Paul Simon及Art Garfunkel在1963年才再重聚,一起再走埋一齐成为音乐拍挡。事实上,由1964年至1970年间Simon & Garfunkel只有出过5只大碟及一只电影原声大碟,但这几十只歌当中就有很多很多首,都是百听不厌的歌曲,就像来自他们1966年第2张大碟 'Sounds Of Silence' 里面的一只歌名好特别的歌曲 'I Am A Rock'。

原来他们的第一只大碟,1964年的 'Wednesday Morning, 3 AM',很奇怪地很多歌曲都不是Paul Simon所写,很多首歌曲都是很Acoustic,也有几首我们会好熟悉的民歌,像 'The Times They Are A-Changin','Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream' 及 'Go Tell It On The Mountain'。这只唱片的反应事实上是不太成功,也使到他们再次分开,Paul Simon就去了英国伦敦继续发展,也曾出过一只个人大碟 'The Paul Simon Song Book' ,Art Garfunkel就返回Columbia University再进修。直至1965年尾Folk-Rock开始受人欢迎,他们首张大碟的监制Tom Wilson就将他们第一只大碟 'Wednesday Morning, 3AM' 其中一首原是Acoustic版本的歌曲抽了出来再重录,就是加上电结他丶低音结他及鼓声,这只Single一出就非常的受欢迎,也就改变了 'Simon & Garfunkel' 这个组合的历史,使他们再次一起灌录第二只大碟。这只歌就是我们必会认识, 'Simon & Garfunkel' 的一只代表作 'The Sound Of Silence'。

这只 'The Sound of Silence' 原来就有两个版本,第一个Acoustic版本系在 'Wednesday Morning, 3 AM' 大碟内,第二个Folk-Rock版本就系在Simon & Garfunkel 1966年第二只大碟 ' Sounds Of Silence' 裹面,也就成为了他们在美国的第一只流行榜No.1歌曲。也有人说Simon & Garfunkel也就是Folk Rock的先驱。事实上,一首改变了 'Simon & Garfunkel' 历史的歌曲 'The Sound Of Silence' 的Producer,Tom Wilson也就是和他们同一唱片公司 'Columbia Record',Folk-Rock始祖Bob Dylan的早期唱片监制。


Zounds 公司介绍:

专发Hi-End级音乐软体的德国Zounds唱片公司

Zounds这个德国音响发烧界算是教主级的唱片公司,以重刻重选重发经典专辑闻名。

Zounds唱片公司的音乐内容和录音品质当然好到不得了,目前所疑虑的只在於价格因素,因为这品牌的CD及24K金碟都属於高价级别。但我个人不这麽认为,好东西就是好东西,像我个人购买音乐专辑,我在乎的也不在於价格,而在音质,不管贵还是便宜,我想识货内行的乐友看的是「音质」这二个字。
事实证明全香港的发烧友还是非常识货的,有些发烧友甚至出一张就买一张,这麽贵的专辑能卖那麽好也算是发烧界的奇迹之一。

Zounds唱片公司所发行的唱片录音有多惊人呢?只要听过他们在1980-90年代发行的一些专辑,就知道完全不输给所谓的xrcd丶HDCD等新一代数位编码所制作的CD唱片。而且Zounds常发行的是一些80-90年代着名的西洋流行丶爵士丶摇滚专辑,除了再制的成绩实在打败原来的版本之外,而且惊人之处在於频宽和动态丶空间感和庞大的声音能量的感觉,还有中低频开始,低频到超低频,那QQ的Q度是为一绝(真的不知怎麽处理的),您甚至会误以为是在聆听一张顶尖录音的SACD呢。而且您音响系统能开大声的话,那麽Zounds惊人的录音再制成就就更令您叹为观止。其实一张专辑再制声音优不优秀,这和CD再制最前端的母带转换(MASTER)作业有关,Zounds唱片公司的制作发行丶寻找母带再制...........,唯用心而已。

如今Zounds唱片公司的专辑,再度由德国原装进口,价格还是.........贵毙了,但其内容和录音是近年少见的精彩,还是要推荐给各位乐友。本店甚至可以预言,以Zounds那麽优秀的录音成效,配合发行专辑的特殊和经典性,明年音响展中,一些有音乐品味和重视示范音乐专辑特殊丶好听丶顶级录音的顶级音响代理商,一定会以Zounds这一家唱片公司的专辑当作示范片的。(网摘,感谢原作者)

Simon & Garfunkel
Mrs. Robinson
Composed by Paul Simon

Song Review by Bill Janovitz

The only new piece of Simon & Garfunkel music on the soundtrack to The Graduate, "Mrs. Robinson" had been lingering in Paul Simon's back pages for a while as an instrumental that did not work as such. Serendipitously, director Mike Nichols came sniffing around for Simon & Garfunkel material for the film that Simon claims he did not particularly like, based on an early-'60s novel he likened to "bad Salinger." Simon felt the film had little potential, but also felt the duo had little to lose by permitting use of their music. They used old songs like "April Come She Will" and "Scarborough Fair" to mark the places where the duo would later place new song inspired by the film. But Nichols liked the way the songs worked, which was a good thing, as Simon apparently had trouble getting inspired by the film. Partner Art Garfunkel suggested to Simon that he try inserting the character's name of Mrs. Robinson into the instrumental piece, and the rest is history; the film's use of the pop music to emphasize the narrative and give voice to the inner workings of the main character, Benjamin Braddock, was groundbreaking for a film that was not a musical. Simon & Garfunkel even fought against CBS Records' head, Clive Davis' insistence that they release a soundtrack record padded with the film's incidental music; the duo felt such an album would cheat their fan base and distract what they felt was a far more important work, their ambitious song-cycle album Bookends (1968). Only when Davis argued that the wider exposure of the film was beneficial to the duo and also agreed to not hold up that record -- releasing the two simultaneously -- did the pair agree to the soundtrack. As it turns out, the union of Simon & Garfunkel music and the zeitgeist-tapping film proved a symbiotic commercial jackpot for both. It was not until after the film was released that Simon developed "Mrs. Robinson" into a full song, having needed only small pieces of it for the soundtrack. The lyrics of the original are a bit more literal to the character. The instrumental performances are a little roughshod, existing in part as cues to the film, with Everly Brothers-meet-Bo Diddley guitar strumming and hummed melodies. The more well-known, hit version of the song was included on Bookends. As much as he sought to distance himself initially from the film, The Graduate was the perfect vehicle for Simon's songs; from the beginning of his songwriting career and continuing through Bookends, Simon had explored the recurring themes of the alienated individual, the lonely and prophetic voice of reason disenfranchised and disappointed by the unfulfilled promise of America, a promise replaced with the emptiness and ache of his song "America." The sense of the country's lost innocence is expressed in "Mrs. Robinson"'s most quoted verse: "Where have you gone, Joe DiMaggio/Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you/Woo woo woo/What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson?/Joltin' Joe has left and gone away?" Simon claims that the song was also the first time the word Jesus was used in a pop song. Despite the controversy it caused at radio, the single went on to become the duo's best-seller thus far. The final Bookends version of the song is a slinky, funky, percussive, acoustic arrangement, heavy on conga drums and the duo's trademark ultra-smooth harmonies. While they were clearly influenced by Bob Dylan and the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel were still most indebted to the Everly Brothers, the heroes of their youth on whom they modeled their first high school incarnation, Tom and Jerry. "Mrs. Robinson" is really just an update of the Everlys' sound. And continuing the update and the tradition of the song as a backdoor hit, punk-popsters the Lemonheads covered the song for the 25th anniversary re-release of the film/home video, an energetic reading that was recorded on the fly on tour in Europe and turned out to be the breakthrough recording for the band, added post-facto to the band's then-current album, It's a Shame About Ray (1992).
