''Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme'' is an album by Simon & Garfunkel, released in the United States on October 10, 1966. Its name comes from the second line of the album's first track, "Scarborough Fair/Canticle", an English folk song from the 16th century, paired with a counter-melody and text about a soldier. It peaked on the U.S. charts at #4. The album was produced by Bob Johnston as Columbia Records LP CL 2563 (mono); CS 9363 (stereo); CD CK 9363; Remastered CD CK 66001.

"Homeward Bound"appearing as the fourth song in the American versionwas excluded from the album upon its release in the United Kingdom, since it had already appeared on the UK release of ''Sounds of Silence''.

The album can be seen as having a protest element in it: the closing song, "7 O'Clock News/Silent Night" featured an the overlaid sound of a news bulletin describing murders and the calling out of the National Guard in the United States, containing also clips from a news broadcast about the Vietnam War. Based on the fact that the broadcast carries the news of the death of comedian Lenny Bruce that day, it can be dated from August 3, 1966.

In 2003, the album was ranked number 201 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. - Wikipedia
