Bridge Over Troubled Water (Live, 1969)

I discovered this song as a seventeen year old but have only just come across this live version from 1969 and recorded after the completion of the Bridge album. As a sixth former I think I found the combination of Paul Simon's thoughtful lyrics, Art's vocal, the whole folk rock thing, and the harmonies, captivating.

I once heard Paul Simon moaning about Art getting all the cheers. He thought they should have cried out "author, author" and cheered him - like they do at rock concerts??!! Just hope that when you preach well, they're saying "Author, Author" in their hearts I guess.

Mark Steyn has written a terrific essay about this song just recently. It's here:

I recommend it.
