Tripping Down The Alleyways
Amsterdam 1970 [GFR068, 1CD]
Live at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; May 2, 1970. Very good VPRO FM broadcast.

Thanks to hooligan3244 for sharing the show at Dime.

There’s a bunch of official live material out there from their 1960s heyday. But here’s one concert that’s different and worthy of having. This, admittedly, is similar to the official album “Live 1969.” But that was taken from a bunch of 1969 concerts. This is one 1970 concert presented in its entirety.

Their album “Bridge Over Troubled Water’ was released in January 1970, and was a massive critical and commercial success, going on to sell over 25 million copies. But the duo were on the verge of breaking up, and did so later that year. They only performed 10 concerts in 1970. Luckily, one of them, this one, was bootlegged as a soundboard, so the sound quality is top notch.[Note: This is the FM version.]

The only thing I didn’t like about the recording is that the duo were so popular that the applause after some songs went on and on and on! I edited some of that down, because I didn’t want to hear a minute or more of cheering and clapping, which was the case for some of the songs towards the end of the show.

This concert isn’t super vital, since the song list is quite similar to the “Live 1969″ one. But I prefer this one to that one, mostly because it’s a single concert instead of a selection.

This album is an hour and 13 minutes long. And, in case you missed the label on this post, it’s an acoustic performance, with just Simon and Garfunkel (plus a pianist for the song “Bridge Over Troubled Water”).
