Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. (Columbia Records)

Released October 19, 1964

Recorded March 10 - 31, 1964

Initially overlooked, Simon and Garfunkel's debut album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., sold a mere 3,000 copies during its first pressing. However, a remarkable resurgence saw the record's sales surpass 500,000, highlighting the duo's unexpected ascent to popularity. Paul Simon's prowess as a songwriter, arranger, and guitarist, combined with the duo's distinctive vocal blend, became evident in this diverse album featuring folk classics, protest songs, a Renaissance piece, and Simon's originals. The balance of six Simon compositions and six cover songs demonstrated their versatility. This debut set the stage for Simon and Garfunkel's subsequent success, as they went on to release five more studio albums, solidifying their status as a pivotal act of the 1960s. Chart Position and Awards:  #30 U.S. Billboard Charts (in 1966), Gold Record.
