SIMON AND GARFUNKEL
Medford 1967 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Cousens Gymnasium, Tufts University, Medford, MA; March 11, 1967. Fairly to very good soundboard.

Thanks to hooligan3244 for sharing the show at Dime.

hooligan3244 noted:

Soundboard recording from reel - probably 2nd or 3rd gen. reel. More dynamic range and less hissy sounding than the previous seed. Also includes an extra minute and a half of a partial “Leaves They Are Green” that’s missing from the previous copy and from most lists of this show on the web.

This copy was gone through carefully to seamlessly remove many clicks and other minor flaws, and has not been circulated from this source before.

There is still quite a bit of tape hiss, but not as loud or in the way of the music as on the other copy.

This show has been traded as various dates and places but most call it Tufts University ‘66 or March 11, 1967. My reel was labeled “Tufts University Fall 1966″ but evidence found on the web shows the date as March 11, 1967. There is an article and ad from the MIT University newspaper that mentions that they are playing that week but does not say that they also played at Tufts in 1966, so I am assuming that March 11, 1967 is the likely date of this recording.

My reel was recorded right around the time that this tape first circulated widely in the late ’70’s. I think it was originally given out by someone who worked at the show. It was not supposed to be traded, but was soon leaked by someone and then bootlegged extensively after that.

  2. Simon and Garfinkle are two jews with lil uns and big noses and deep pockets.Simon comes from a Jewish background. SIMON: I was raised to a degree, enough to be, you know, bar-mitzvahed and have that much Jewish education, although I had no interest.
    As Simon and Garfunkel were Jews, that The Sound of Silence contains hundreds of Christian images implies a bias in the story, given that they each practiced Judaism

  23. Walter : I think at Bigo they don’t care at all about those riddiculously disgusting comments, some immature characters started posting 2 or three years ago. If they don’t care, there is nothing we can do, except ignore the silly trolls. Not much of a problem I guess.

    By HHH on Aug 8, 2022

  53. I’m struck by how fast they’re playing everything. Is it nerves, or are they trying to fit as much in as they can? The music doesn’t breathe, but the arrangements are intriguing.

    By Blair Frodelius on Aug 8, 2022

  54. So sad that the pre-pubescents haven’t found another site to pollute with their inane comments. Sadder still that the Big O doesn’t have the balls to ban them all.
