Got to be great...friends / 5
I had Collected works in tape format and it made me a fan of Simon & Garfunkel's music. It has been quite some time I was thinking of upgrading my Simon & garfunkel collection to CD format. I had the following options :-

1) Getting 3 CD Collected Works which has all 5 albums entirely and tracks are ordered like original albums.
2) Getting each album separately or getting best 3 of their 5 studio albums.
3) Getting Old friends which have most of the studio album tracks (42 out of 57 or something) but the tracks are not in order, but with some previously unreleased tracks.
4) Getting Complete Columbia Recordings, which has all 5 studio albums with bonus tracks.

None of the above options are bad really. I do not think "Collected works" will be available except from used music store. If you want some tracks which were not there in their studio albums then get "Old Friends" or "Complete Columbia Recordings". Even the single albums are now available with bonus tracks, so you can individually get them too but if you want most of the tracks from the albums but also want to hear some bonus tracks but do not want to spend much, get this.

There is nothing new that can be said about the music, its great music as you expect from world's best folk-rock duo. The collection starts wonderfully with a demo version of "Bleaker Street", the version is better than the original version to me. After that you get the remastered version of the known studio tracks and good live or demo or alternate versions of tracks. I like the 5 subsequent tracks from a live show in CD #2.

To sum up...evergreen music with remastered sound and the package also comes with a good booklet. Still if you a pure album collector you have to go for the other options. I am quite strictly album listener but still I do not regret buying this because I have all the albums in tape format and it is still good to listen the tracks in some other order than usual. This is one of the few compilation in my Cd collection. Essential buy!!!

Song "You Can Call Me Al"

(paul simon)

A man walks down the street
He says why am i soft in the middle now
Why am i soft in the middle
The rest of my life is so hard
I need a photo-opportunity
I want a shot at redemption
Don't want to end up a cartoon
In a cartoon graveyard
Bonedigger bonedigger
Dogs in the moonlight
Far away my well-lit door
Mr. beerbelly beerbelly
Get these mutts away from me
You know i don't find this stuff amusing anymore

If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you betty
And betty when you call me
You can call me al

A man walks down the street
He says why am i short of attention
Got a short little span of attention
And wo my nights are so long
Where's my wife and family
What if i die here
Who'll be my role-model
Now that my role-model is
Gone gone
He ducked back down the alley

With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl
All along along
There were incidents and accidents
There were hints and allegations

If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you betty
And betty when you call me
You can call me al
Call me al

A man walks down the street
It's a street in a strange world
Maybe it's the third world
Maybe it's his first time around
He doesn't speak the language
He holds no currency
He is a foreign man
He is surrounded by the sound
The sound
Cattle in the marketplace
Scatterlings and orphanages
He looks around, around
He sees angels in the architecture
Spinning in infinity
He says amen! and hallelujah!

If you'll be my bodyguard
I can be your long lost pal
I can call you betty
And betty when you call me
You can call me al

The idea, it seems, was to avoid wearing costumes and wigs. The two-year-old ensemble known as the Jersey Shore Rock-N-Soul Revue ? a "tribute" band made up of Shore musicians led by guitarist Bobby Bandiera ? is the brainchild of Numa Saisselin, CEO of the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank (where the revue performs).

Excerpt: 'What a Party!' (NPR)
I remember walking home from Bellevue Country Club in Syracuse late one afternoon when I was fourteen years old, and with each step I was more depressed. I had just spent five hours caddying, lugging two heavy golf bags up and down hills for a grand total of eight bucks. I didn't mind the work.
