About this album

Bridge over Troubled Water is the fifth and final studio album by Simon & Garfunkel. Released on January 26, 1970, it reached No. 1 on Billboard Music Charts pop albums list. It won a Grammy Award for Album of the Year, as well as for Best Engineered Recording, while its title track won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year and Song of the Year in the Grammy Awards of 1971. It has since sold over 25 million copies worldwide.

The album attained a great success in the United Kingdom, enjoying several runs at number one, spending some years in the charts and eventually becoming the country’s biggest-selling album of 1970 and 1971. In August 2006, the continued popularity of the album was proven when it charted 7th place in The BBC Radio 2 Music Club Top 100 Albums. In 2003, it was ranked at #51 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list. The album won Best International Album at the first Brit Awards in 1977.

The songs “Cuba Si, Nixon No,” “Groundhog,” and the demo “Feuilles-O” (later Garfunkel released “Feuilles-Oh/Do Space Men Pass Dead Souls on Their Way to the Moon?” as the flip to his “I Shall Sing”) were recorded during sessions but not released on the album. “Cuba Si, Nixon No” was later released on a bootleg copy of a November 11, 1969 concert by Simon and Garfunkel at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, while the demo recording of “Feuilles-O” was later released on the Old Friends and The Columbia Studio Recordings (1964–1970) box sets.

    Perfection takes the form of a 55 minute album

    My family -- including my father, who openly expressed his disdain for "modern" music -- burned through our original cassette from multiple playings. An all-time favorite.

    Puentes sobre aguas turbulentas de 1970,fue el ultimo trabajo del duo de nueva york.este albun quedó con once temas .porque se suprimio,supuestamente uno que era relacionado con una critica a la politica norteamericana,al parecer el tema era cuba si ,nixon no.,y uno de los dos se nego a grabarla,.....Es el mejor albun que hicieron y temas como,cecilia , el condol pasa,the boxer. y el tema que da titulo al albun .son todo un clasico,.ademas fue uno de los albunes mas vendidos de los 70....paul simon era el compositor mayoritario de los temas ,pero art,era la gran voz,uno tenia lo que le faltaba al otro,perfecta conexion.

    I have this on vinyl, too. One of the albums I found in storage. It's a good thing my family kept good care of it, because it sounds great even now. It keeps the same emotion throughout the entire album, and never falters. It's difficult to do that. Paul Simon is a brilliant songwriter.

    Garfunkel's mustache is epic on the cover. Shame about Paul Simon's balding though...

    NEWS FLASH: if you have the picture of the cover in front of you, put your hand over paul simon's face, but not his hair. it looks like art garfunkel has a huge mustache.
