ALBUM TITLE: The Very Best Of Art Garfunkel - Across America [Disc One] (perhaps surprisingly, this first volume in the pair was released seperately to the second)
BACKGROUND INFO: This is Part One of a two CD set - the second CD (Part Two) is listed separately. It was produced to promote Art Garfunkel's tour (which included performaces at the London Palladium) and to boost sales of Art's back catalogue including the DVD/movie release of Across America (with which it should not be confused!).
According to the publisher this is “A stunning double CD - ‘Across America: The Very Best of Art Garfunkel’ is a brilliant collection featuring the legendary tenor voice of an enduring twentieth century icon.” ‘Across America’ itself has a double meaning which refers not just to Art’s extensive touring, but also the cross-continental walks he has undertaken, writing poetry along the way. (Japan in the 1980s; America in incremental steps from 1983 to 1997, and most recently Europe). This promo was accompanied by an interview for which the webpage no longer exists. A more recent, yet extremely similar interview can be read here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012/jan/01/art-garfunkel-interview
