Another wonderful performance from the end of the Simon and Garfunkel era, this disc surfaced in the past year after making the rounds through private trading circles for a number of years. The source is very, very clean, with nice stereo separation. The performance is quite spirited, given the era, and showcases the only know recorded performance of "Lightning Express," a cover of a 1950s rockabilly song.

Overall, this is a wonderful disc for the collector, and one of the best sounding recorded performances of Simon and Garfunkel.
