SIMON & GARFUNKEL ‘RECOLLECTIONS’ (aka ‘Tom & Jerry’) (CBM)

 

Matrix: SGTJ-A / B

Based on the label I would date this to 1973 but it may exist with other labels and in different insert/cover variations.

I could not list this one when I tried to cover all of the Contraband releases, as it’s one of the rarer ones and I only had a small image of it taken from a sales list of the Warehouse record store in Tokyo (now closed in that location).

This is mostly a pirate release.

Track list (taken from HW, so likely incorrect in places):

S1: Not Yet / She’s Gone (But Morning Lives On) / Tear Jerker / Teenage Fool / High School Dance Instrumental / Dancing Wild
S2: Pretty Boy / Two Teenagers / Please Answer / High School Dance Instrumental 2 / 59th St. Bridge Song* / Feeling Groovy* / Cloudy*

The first 10 tracks were supposedly recorded by Simon & Garfunkel in the second half of the 1950’s when they called themselves Tom & Jerry. I looked hard and was only able to confirm three of the titles on compilations released decades later. The tracks marked ‘* ‘ were taken from their appearances on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour TV show in 1967 (in season 1, episode 14 – taped in May – and season two, episode 107, taped in October ’67).
