About this album

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme is the third album by Simon & Garfunkel, released in the United States on October 10, 1966. Its name comes from the second line of the album’s first track, “Scarborough Fair/Canticle”, an English folk song from the 16th century, paired with a counter-melody and text about a soldier. It peaked on the U.S. charts at #4. The album was produced by Bob Johnston as Columbia Records LP CL 2563 (mono); CS 9363 (stereo); CD CK 9363; Remastered CD CK 66001. Rolling Stone magazine co-founder Ralph Gleason provided the liner notes.

“Homeward Bound” – appearing as the fourth song in the American version – was excluded from the album upon its release in the United Kingdom, since it had already appeared on the UK release of Sounds of Silence.

The closing track, “7 O’Clock News/Silent Night,” can be seen as a snap-shot of the era as it featured a simulated news bulletin recording mixed in with the music. The bulletin reported the death of Lenny Bruce, the indictment of mass-murderer Richard Speck, and the calling out of the National Guard in response to civil protests.

    Their best. [2] Pretty solid stuff, except for that whole Big Bright Green Pleasure Machine silliness.

    "released in the United States on October 10, 1966. ... It peaked on the U.S. charts at #4. .. "Homeward Bound" was excluded from the album in the UK...The album can be seen as having a protest element in it: the closing song, "7 O'Clock News/Silent Night," contained clips of a news broadcast about the Vietnam War. Based on the fact that the broadcast carries the news of the death of comedian Lenny Bruce that day, it can be dated from August 3, 1966". In 2003, the album was ranked number 201 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
