Episode 96 of Love That Album is available....and like a bridge over troubled water, it will ease your mind.
Maurice is joined by Ben Eisen ofthe All Time Top Ten podcast to discuss the final two studio albums from Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, 1968's "Bookends" and 1970's "Bridge Over Troubled Waters". Their Everly Brothers inspired vocal harmony blend, combined with Simon's songwriting and Garfunkel's fragile vocal style make them a truly unique pairing. Their albums to this point had already yielded classic songs still recalled to this day,but both Bookends and Bridge not only further demonstrate their way with great songs, but also stylistically advance into directions Simon would continue to explore in his solo career.
Ben and Maurice talk about their introduction to S & G and what keeps them listening to these albums throughout their lifetimes. The only thing missing is the two of them harmonising......but they chose not to do so, because they wantedtokeep their listeners satisfied........
Eric Reanimator's "Album I Love" segment covers the the Crash Test Dummies. The band is more than just that (admittedly great) hit Mmm,Mmm, Mmm,Mmm.
