Much as I enjoyed Paul's solo career, I still miss Artie in the vocal mix.     at least on most songs.    they could have gone on as an act, mixing harmony songs with individual vocal performances on other songs.  Although I don' t think Artie would have "fit" on Graceland.

Hearts and Bones which is probably my favorite Paul Simon solo album was originally intended to be a Simon & Garfunkel album to coincide with their 1983 reunion tour.  There are bootlegs out there of Train in the Distance and Song About the Moon with Garfunkel studio vocals.  Think Too Much, Cars Are Cars, and The Late Great Johnny Ace were also included in their setlists on the tour.  But in the end, it just didn't work out.  Simon decided to wipe Garfunkel's vocals from the album.  Honestly, I can see why it didn't work but I still would love to hear what it would have sounded like.  Think Too Much in particular, the fast version, sounds like it could have made a great Simon & Garfunkel song.  You can read more about it here.

I thought I'd post here that art Garfunkel has a new book out. I heard this interview with him and thought I'd post the link:

Simon's definitely better singer than Garfunkel.

I think Paul himself might differ with you on that assertion.
