The Top of the Poppers Sing and Play Simon and Garfunkel’s Greatest Hits

Sleeve Notes:

Following the outstanding success of our Hallmark L.P., “The Top of the Poppers present the Beatles’ Golden Hits,” our brilliant London-Based group of session musicians and singers, “The Top of the Poppers” present another selection of all-time hits made famous by, perhaps, the greatest duo in Pop music to-day, Simon & Garfunkel.
Their “Bridge over Troubled Water” will remain a classic of its kind for ever; for in this soulful, plaintive, haunting melody is the distilled essence of Man’s tribulations.

Great composers automatically attract attention wherever and whenever their music is performed and in the case of Simon and Garfunkel there can scarc,’y be a territory in the world that hasn’t heard one at least of their classics. And classics they are, rightfully taking their place in the musical library of the day as songs that are a reflection of our times and the creation of two finely-tuned musical minds.

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel don’t write or appear together very much these days; like many teams they’ve separated in order to pursue other activities in show business. But their partnership, particularly during the late 1960’s gave us some superb songs and you’ll find most of them on this album.

“The Sound Of Silence’: “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, “The Boxer”, “Cecilia” are songs that future generations of entertainers will sing with the same delight that the Top of the Poppers give them. They’ll sing them and enjoy singing them simply because they contain just about every ingredient needed for a performer to feel confident; the lyrics make sense and have a feel that is lasting and the melody has real strength.

If that’s what success in popular music is all about then Simon and Garfunkel capture it – and capture it truly. All that’s needed then is an appreciative audience and you alone can provide that.
