Concerts in Cinema: THE HARMONY GAME-The Making of Bridge Over Troubled Water
THE HARMONY GAME tells the story behind Simon and Garfunkel’s last studio album – Bridge Over Troubled Water – which has its legacy shrouded in rock n’ roll mythology with legendary tales of inspiration, innovation and separation. Paul Simon and Art
Garfunkel share the journey in their own words and reflect back on its impact 40 years later. Also featured in the documentary are several of the duo’s collaborators from the period: Roy Halee (co-producer/engineer), Hal Blaine (drums), Joe Osborn (bass guitar), Jimmie Haskell (arranger), Mort Lewis (manager), and actor Charles Grodin, director of Songs Of America.
THE HARMONY GAME includes scenes from the controversial CBS television special Songs Of America, the candid, behind-the-scenes look at Simon & Garfunkel at work on Bridge Over Troubled Water, which aired on CBS in November 1969 and has not been available on VHS or DVD since.
A rarely seen time-capsule of Simon & Garfunkel’s writing process and of the late-1960s, THE HARMONY GAME will be included on the forthcoming Bridge Over Troubled Water: 40th Anniversary CD+DVD and is available for a limited time in select theatres.
