On September 19, 1981, Simon & Garfunkel held a free public concert on Central Park’s Great Lawn in New York City, raising money to restore to the world’s most famous urban park. The duo had rarely performed since their breakup in 1970, but their music continued to resonate with the city from which they came. “These nice Jewish boys from Queens didn't run off to Malibu to live happily ever after, once they were millionaires,” Stephen Holden wrote in a review for Rolling Stone. “They stayed around the city, continuing to assimilate its cultural resources, recycle them and give them back.” The Concert In Central Park was Simon & Garfunkel’s biggest gift to their hometown: more than 500,000 people were in attendance, one of the largest concert audiences of all time. This unforgettable performance features all of Simon & Garfunkel’s greatest hits as well as selections from their solo catalogs, newly arranged with an expanded 11-man band.
