Live From New York City, 1967

Simon & Garfunkel

Like Woody Allen, Lou Reed and thin-crust pizza, Simon and Garfunkel — both natives of Forest Hill, Queens — are inexorably linked to New York City and this show, recorded at Lincoln Center's Philharmonic Hall on January 22, 1967 (it wasn't officially released until 2002), is the first in a string of noteworthy hometown performances. It also captures the duo mid-career (pre-The Graduate, post-"The Sounds of Silence"), before the tension that eventually spurred their breakup seeped into their live performances.
