The Best of 1970 Folk Music

The Best of Simon and Garfunkel

Simon and Garfunkel were an American folk rock duo consisting of singer-songwriter Paul Simon and singer Art Garfunkel. One of the best-selling music groups of the 1960s, their greatest hits—including “The Sound of Silence” (1965), “Mrs. Robinson” (1968), “The Boxer” (1969), and “Bridge over Troubled Water” (1970)—reached number one on singles charts worldwide. Their lengthy folk rock ballad “The Sound of Silence” became one particular standout hit; upon its single release in January 1966, following Performances on The Ed Sullivan Show and at Carnegie Hall, radio station WTAC in Flint, Michigan began playing the song around the clock, and the song began receiving nationwide airplay within a matter of weeks.

The Best of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young

1970 was an important year for folk music, with many iconic artists releasing seminal albums. Among them were Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, whose album Déjà Vu is often considered one of the best of all time. The album featured some of the group’s most popular songs, including “Teach Your Children” and “Our House”.

The Best of James Taylor

After Simon & Garfunkel released Bridge over Troubled Water in early 1970, Paul Simon began working on his debut solo album while Art Garfunkel recorded his first solo LP, Angel Clare. The duo’s subsequent reunion yielded a hit single, “My Little Town,” but Simon’s first project outside of Simon & Garfunkel was his greatest success. His eponymous debut contained the chart-topping singles “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard,” “Mother and Child Reunion” and “Kodachrome.”
