Full Show Friday: Simon and Garfunkel - The Concert In Central Park 1981

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...Today, Simon & Garfunkel!!!

With the Summer Stage season kicking off next week we wanted to post one of the best summer shows we have ever heard, Simon & Garfunkel's Concert In Central Park from 1981. This is professionally shot and recorded and can be bought here if you want to own this glorious show. We have seen some cool shows in Central Park, but this one is pretty amazing, and reminds me how great these guys were.  Timeless songs, flawless harmonies, this night had it all.

Highlights include "America" which is as pure of a song as there is, the upbeat "Me & Julio Down By the Schoolyard", the "Kodachrome/Maybellene" combo, the poetic "April Come She Will"and the funky "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover".  Enjoy:
