About this album

Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (exciting new sounds in the folk tradition) is the debut album by folk duo Simon & Garfunkel, released October 19, 1964. It was produced by Tom Wilson and engineered by Roy Halee.

It initially flopped, in the shadow of The Beatles having just landed with their music, and caused Paul Simon to go to England and Art Garfunkel to resume his university studies at Columbia University in New York City, each going different directions.

But it was re-released in January 1966 to capitalize on their newly found radio success with a later re-mixed electric/acoustic version of The Sounds Of Silence, and so the album reached #30 on the Billboard pop charts.

It is perhaps best known for the acoustic version of “The Sounds of Silence”.

In several concerts, Art Garfunkel related that during the photo sessions for the album cover, several hundred pictures were taken that were unusable due to the “all-familiar suggestion” on the wall in the background, which inspired the song “A Poem on the Underground Wall”.
