A fine portrait of Simon and Garfunkel in one of their most creative periods. The show features both old and new material, including two songs which weren't officially recorded by the duo ("Red Rubber Ball" and "A Church Is Burning") and one which only appeared as a B-side ("You Don't Know..."). The performance is quite good, and the spoken intros are some of Paul's finest. The recording is sourced from an old analogue tape, likely an audience recording, and suffers from a lot of wow and flutter. This is but a minor problem, and doesn't detract from the total listening experience. However, it is certainly the lowest-quality of the available Simon and Garfunkel ROIOs.
