Art Garfunkel 2-Disc Retrospect Coming in April

Art Garfunkel has hand-picked 40 songs for a new career spanning retrospect called The Singer which is being release on April 10th.

The two-CD collection will cover the years from the first Simon & Garfunkel album of 1964 (Wednesday Morning, 3AM) up through 2007's Great American Songbook album (Some Enchanted Evening.

In addition to curating The Singer, Garfunkel provides his own personal track-by-track annotations, which appear in the booklet in his handwritten form. The notes are as unique as Garfunkel himself. He writes of "Cecilia," the S&G hit single from 1970: "'Car!' we called in Queens. Then we stopped the game and stepped aside. I grew up where the brick houses were semi-attached with driveways in between. Punchball was king. Somehow the yelling we did as street kids found its way to 'Cecilia.' We shouted the song over a track we made from a tape loop of rhythmic hand clapping onto our blue jeans."
