Description

Offered for sale is an original UK stereo pressing of The Sounds of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel.

About this copy: This copy of The Sounds of Silence is a 1966 UK stereo pressing on the orange CBS label.

The cover is VG++ with no wear, but former owner “Dan” has written his name in the lower right hand corner of the back cover.

The disc is M- with no spindle marks on the labels, and no marks on the vinyl.  It’s a very clean disc that looks almost unplayed.  Again, “Dan” has written his name on the labels.

A nice copy of a great-sounding LP.

Background: Released in 1965, Sounds of Silence was the second studio album by Simon & Garfunkel.

The album reached #21 on the U.S. charts and #13 in the UK.

Allmusic.com gave Sounds of Silence a 3 1/2 star review:

Simon & Garfunkel’s second album, Sounds of Silence, was recorded 18 months after their debut long-player, Wednesday Morning, 3 AM — but even though the two albums shared one song (actually, one-and-a-half songs) in common, the sound here seemed a million miles away from the gentle harmonizing and unassuming acoustic accompaniment on the first record. In between, there had been a minor earthquake in the pop/rock world called “folk-rock,” which resulted in the transformation of their acoustic rendition of “The Sound of Silence” into a classic of the new genre, complete with jangling electric guitars and an amplified beat that helped carry it to the top of the charts.
