"The Singer"
Art Garfunkel
CD ($14.95)

Reaching deep into a musical career that spans nearly five decades, Garfunkel personally selected the 34 songs for this two-CD retrospective, the most extensive, widest-ranging representation ever of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and five-time Grammy-winning artist. Among the highlights are seven classic studio and live concert performances with his ’60s singing partner, Paul Simon (including “Bridge Over Troubled Water” and “Scarborough Fair”), every No. 1 hit of Garfunkel’s subsequent solo career (among them “All I Know,” “Breakaway,” “I Only Have Eyes For You,” “My Little Town” and “What A Wonderful World”), two brand-new 2012 recordings, and Garfunkel’s personal, handwritten booklet notes to accompany each track.
