Simon & Garfunkel – The Sound of Silence – Live HQ (aka The Sounds of Silence)
Written by megarock on January 5, 2019
January 1, 1966: Simon and Garfunkel started a two week run at #1 on the US singles chart with "The Sound Of Silence." Originally recorded and released as an acoustic song, the record was not getting much airplay; Tom Wilson, the song's producer, would remix the track, overdubbing electric instruments and drums. Simon and Garfunkel were not informed of the song's remix until after its re-release in September 1965. It would be the duo's first of three #1 singles.
