To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Simon & Garfunkel's first release on Columbia Records in 1964, The Complete Albums Collection provides a fascinating career-spanning overview of the iconic folk-rock duo. Here for the first time in one package is Simon & Garfunkel's complete discography: their five studio albums for Columbia released between 1964 and 1970; the multiplatinum albums The Graduate (the soundtrack to the 1967 film of the same name which first featured the duo's classic –Mrs. Robinson") and Simon & Garfunkel's Greatest Hits (the 1972 compilation that, with 14 million albums shipped, remains the duo's most popular); and four live albums recorded between 1967 and 2004, including 1982's The Concert In Central Park (the group's first activity since their dissolution in 1970), Old Friends: Live On Stage, a double disc account of their acclaimed 2003-2004 reunion tour, and two archival live sets: Live From New York City, 1967 (recorded at Lincoln Center and featuring the duo performing an intimate acoustic set) and Live 1969 (featuring recordings from Simon & Garfunkel's final tour).
