Simon and Garfunkel reunited on stage for a fundraising benefit for Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern (who lost by a wide margin to Richard Nixon). The set was basic, a perfect fit for a half-hour slot. The performance is fair - very routine, with little energy. However, it is unique. On "Bridge," Paul sings the second verse and harmonizes with Artie during the third verse. The medley of "Cecilia/Mother And Child Reunion/Bye Bye Love" allowed Paul a chance to play one of his new songs in a live venue.

The recording is not very good, with muffled sound and a lot of wow and flutter. This ROIO is only available on vinyl, and is very, very difficult to find.
