Featuring Jeff Engholm & the Collective Unconscious
Collective Unconscious presents Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” in its entirety to honor this groundbreaking album. We drop the needle on S&G’s last record as a duo. Complete with strings and horns, it’s a true sonic representation of the original arrangements down to the last meticulous detail. You do not want to miss this!
Past Jeff Engholm/Collective Unconscious tributes at CDT include those to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, Paul McCartney and Wings, the Beach Boys and more. Jeff is also a headliner in the popular Fleetwood Mac tribute, “Rumours & Dreams.”
“‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ generates a unique set of feelings in us. The lyrics are so visual: taking the album down and placing it on the record player (the only real way to listen to BOTW) is like paging through a childhood photo album long lost. The record is simultaneously somber and joyous, deep and light. It’s only now, looking back across some 50 years that we get a sense of the placeholder in time that was BOTW. Released as it was in 1970, BOTW truly served as a marker between the decades, a nod to the ideals and folksy simplicity of the ’60s mixed with the global complexities and inward thinking that was to dominate the decade to come. BOTW was a balm in a confusing time and remains so today.” -Collective Unconscious
