The Essential 3.0 Review

by Steve Leggett

The 3.0 series collects the biggest hits and songs from major pop artists along with select album tracks and live performances on two discs with a third, shorter bonus disc of additional tracks added in, which means, in the case here, one gets a pretty fair survey of Simon & Garfunkel's recording career. All the duo’s biggest songs are here, including “The Sound of Silence,” “A Hazy Shade of Winter,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “Fakin’ It,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “The Boxer,” and “My Little Town,” along with album tracks like “Punky’s Dilemma,” although a handful of these are live versions. Ardent fans will no doubt have everything included here, but as an overview, this set really isn’t a bad purchase.
