Release Info: Garfunkel - Angel Clare - 1973
Arthur Ira Art Garfunkel (born November 5, 1941) is an American singer, poet and actor, best known as half of the Grammy Award winning folk duo Simon & Garfunkel.
Garfunkel pursued an acting career in the early 1970s, appearing in two Mike Nichols's films Catch-22 (1970) and Carnal Knowledge (1971). He later appeared in Nicholas Roeg's Bad Timing: A Sensual Obsession (1980), Good to Go, (1986) directed by Blain Novak, Boxing Helena (1993) directed by Jennifer Chambers Lynch, and The Rebound (2008) directed by Bart Freundlich. He has recorded several solo albums, scoring hits with "I Only Have Eyes For You" (a 1934 song written by Harry Warren) and "Bright Eyes" (both British #1 hit singles), and "All I Know" (#9 in the United States). A version of "Bright Eyes" also appeared in the movie (based on the famous novel) Watership Down. Garfunkel briefly reunited with Paul Simon for the 1975 hit "My Little Town"; Simon, and mutual friend James Taylor, also contributed backing vocals to Garfunkel's 1977 cover of Sam Cooke's "(What a) Wonderful World", which reached #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #17 pop.
In 1963 he and Simon reformed their duo under their own names as "Simon and Garfunkel" and released their first album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. on Columbia Records in October 1964. It was not a critical success, and the duo subsequently split again. The next year, producer Tom Wilson lifted the song "The Sound of Silence" from the record, dubbed an electric backing onto it, and released it as a single that went to #1 on the Billboard pop charts. Simon and Garfunkel reunited and went on to become one of the most popular acts of the 1960s, releasing four more studio albums. Citing personal differences and divergence in career interests, they split following the release of their most critically acclaimed album, Bridge over Troubled Water, in 1970.
