Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme was the big breakthrough album for Simon & Garfunkel as artists.
Engineer Roy Halee ensured that the album would sound great. Just compare the clumsy overdubbing of their earlier The Sound Of Silence with anything on this album and you’ll see what we mean! The highlight has to be the title song.
It remains a beautiful signature piece, relying simply on acoustic guitar and harpsichord to convey its haunting marriage of English ballad and antiwar plaint. The album showers the listener in acoustic delicacy – a perfect blend of traditional and modern ideas.
