Dancing Bear

These guys are storytellers and noteshiths.  I love two part harmony and nobody, ever did it better.


[this is good] Sometimes it makes me sad what my kids have had available to call music.  Nice to have this around - thanks, m!!!


[this is good] It is a lovely, lovely song. I have it on CD and vinyl. we saw them on their last tour a few years back and they can still harmonize so well altho Art can't hit all the high notes any more. 


[this is good] Pure artistry.

We heard this a lot growing up. Any song with a Michigan reference was played on the radios quite a bit. Of course, we talked about all the other towns that would have been nicer than Saginaw to pass through.

Flamingo Dancer

I adored Simon and Garfunkel - I still have all their albums on vinyl. Beautiful music.

[this is good] I listened to that album all through junior high school.  Also recommended:  Paul Simon's "American Tune".

Like the Dancer, I have all their albums on vinyl.


[this is good] Oh YES.
I was in 7th and 8th grade. I was totally and completely in love with Paul. My best friend loved Art.
I have every song. Vinyl and otherwise. So beautiful. Interwoven melodies and harmonies. They are imprinted on my soul.

My hubby took me to see them in their last tour through Michigan maybe 10 years ago. Still incredible. That was another one of those concerts where I would have happily died in the parking lot afterward so I didn't have to come back to reality.

 Music is one thing that reaches beyond human idiocy. "We've all come to look for America."
