Simon--Garfunkel-Bridge-Over-Troub-539635 SIMON & GARFUNKEL Bridge Over Troubled Water

2011 issue Japanese 40th Anniversary Limited Edition 3-disc [2CD/1DVD] set – Having sold over 25-million copies worldwide [15 million since 1991], 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' was one of the biggest-selling albumsof its decade, topping the charts world-wide including 33 weeks at #1 and 6 YEARS in the chart in the UK alone! Perhaps the most delicately textured album to close out the 1960s from any major rock act, 'Bridge Over TroubledWater', at its most ambitious and bold, was a quietly reassuring album; at other times, it was personal yet soothing; and at other times still, it was just plain fun. It was certainly their most musically ambitious, with 'Bridge Over Troubled Water' and 'The Boxer' employing thundering drums and tasteful orchestration, and 'Cecilia' marking one of Simon's first forays into world music rhythms. It also caught the confused, reflective tenor of the times better than almost any other popular release of 1970. This 3-disc set comprises the 11-track CD album, alongside a Bonus CD [previously unreleased in the UK] featuring 17 tracks recorded live in North America, Australia & Japan; plus a Bonus Region 0 NTSC DVD containing the 'Songs Of America' documentary [originally broadcast on CBS] with footage of the 1969 tour, and a brand new documentary about the making of 'Bridge', with 2010 interviews with Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Roy Halee and more key principles involved with making of the album. Presented in a fold-out digipak picture sleeve with Japanese lyric and biography booklet and large obi-strip.
