Simon & Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme [SACD] (Hybrid SACD, limited/numbered)

The liner notes pioneering writer Ralph J. Gleason penned for the
back cover of Simon and Garfunkel's Parsley, Sage, Rosemary
and Thyme ring as true now as they did upon the record's original
release in 1966. He mused: ''Today's popular music is in good shape
indeed-at least the portion of it represented by this album. It has
strength and it has beauty, it has lyricism, meaning, and, above
all, that quality of broad appeal which still retains form. And its
music speaks for more than the moment. The songs in this album
are songs for all time.'' Indeed, they are, and they can now be
experienced in the highest fidelity they've ever enjoyed.
Reflecting the perfectionist-minded nature of Bob Johnston's
meticulous production and the group's painstaking arrangements,
Mobile Fidelity's reissues bring to light textures, nuances, details,
and microdynamics obscured on prior editions. Harmonies crest and
seemingly float on clouds. Acoustic passages blossom with lifelike
structure. The intent of deliberate euphonic variations is made clear.
Such punctiliousness is exactly what the duo pursued during their
four months in the studio, considered then by record-company
executives to be borderline excessive. But as these editions attest
like never before, there's no arguing with the results of a benchmark
Rolling Stone named the 202nd Greatest Album of All Time.
