Simon & Garfunkel: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (Columbia)

Gene Sculatti, Mojo Navigator, 8 November 1966

SIMON AND Garfunkel's third album is quite different from their second (their first, all-folk album was produced before their first hit and is nowhere as interesting as the succeeding two.) For one thing, their second album, Sounds of Silence, had a heavy predominance of rock, or at least amplified, material. This third album features mainly acoustic guitar work, although there are instances where accompaniment is employed (bass, drums, organ, strings, and the Indian sound) with mixed results.
