This chronological discography is intended to complement the two biographical writeups already present in this node.

Both Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel have been active in the recording industry for the better part of fifty years, but my focus here is on a specific six-year portion of that time - October 1964 to October 1970. Simon and Garfunkel's best known work was released through the Columbia record label during this period.

In the first year or so after The Sounds Of Silence took Simon and Garfunkel to #1 on the US singles chart, a handful of other record labels took measures to capitalise on the duo's success, releasing recordings they had acquired the rights to during Simon and Garfunkel's pre-Columbia years.

Simon and Garfunkel also enjoyed success in the UK and throughout the rest of the world, but I have decided to record only the US releases, as they accurately reflect the actual growth of the duo's talents. This discography, therefore, is purely concerned with Simon and Garfunkel's official Columbia album and single releases in their heyday, and their respective US chart peaks.
