Art Garfunkel ~ Watermark. “Art Garfunkel, coming to a church basement near you. Oh, there’s plenty I want to say about Art (when I asked him just now) but it’s not suitable for publication.” ~review from the chef.  This record was the soundtrack to my husband making organic, gluten-free, soy free spread and maple syrup.. pancakes! Simon says…non.

Loosely described as “folk”, this album was so terrible, I didn’t listen to Side B. Sorry Art, I tried but you’re a rethrift. I can’t believe how positive his accolades are from wiki:    Arthur Ira “Art” Garfunkel (born November 5, 1941) is an American singer, songwriter, poet, and actor. He is best known as half of the folk duo Simon & Garfunkel, which split in 1970, at the height of their popularity. He received a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of Sandy Kaufman in 1971’s Carnal Knowledge.   Highlights of his solo music career include a top 10 hit, three top 20 hits, six top 40 hits, 14 Adult Contemporary top 30 singles, five Adult Contemporary number ones, two UK number ones and a People’s Choice Award. Through his solo and collaborative work, Garfunkel has earned six Grammys, including the Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1990, he and former musical partner Paul Simon were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Garfunkel’s next release was the 1978 album, Watermark (US #19, UK #26), which upon initial release, failed to make an impression on the public. Its main single, “Crying In My Sleep” (“Mr. Shuck ‘N’ Jive”) (UK #25) failed to reach the US Top 40, but after a two-month hiatus where it was taken off the market, it was re-released in January 1978, with Garfunkel’s cover of Sam Cooke‘s “(What a) Wonderful World” (B-Side: “Wooden Planes”), which reached #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #17 pop, as the new single.  (((cheap)) 

I took a sleeping pill and tried to sleep… I was talking to your pillow. oh gawd.
