Sounds of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel

Hello Friends! Today we're returning to Simon & Garfunkel, with their breakout LP "Sounds of Silence". This wonderful hodge-podge collection of Folk and Folk Rock tunes was subject to Mono and Stereo mixes in 1966, along with a faithful 2001 remix of the entire stereo album, as a well as a partially re-recorded single edit of I Am A Rock, giving us plenty here to work with. This has been one of my favourite episodes of Mixology to compile yet, with huge sonic differences between a large number of tracks, with many of the Folk Rock tracks being bathed in echo in mono, and vice versa for the Folk tracks in stereo. So, why sit in silence any longer? Let's get a Groovy Things Goin' and dig right in!

Happy Listening,
