Wednesday Morning 3AM (1964) by Simon & Garfunkel (Genre: Folk):
This is the very first album released by Simon & Garfunkel in March of 1964 only a month after The Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and right in the middle of the sixties folk boom. This album is different from any other album S&G ever released because it truly is a folk album. By the time the duo released their next LP, The Sound of Silence, they had transitioned to play Folk Rock.
Songs on the LP include the original version of the Sound of Silence, Bleecker Street, He Was My Brother, Go Tell it On The Mountain, The Times They Are A-Changin’ and Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M.
