Reviews:

''Bookends'' is the name of an album and its title track, both recorded by Simon & Garfunkel, released April 3, 1968. It was produced by Paul Simon, Roy Halee and Art Garfunkel.

''Bookends'' was Simon & Garfunkel's concept album, with the first side following the views of age, while the second side contained unused songs intended for The Graduate soundtrack, the soundtrack from Mike Nichols' 1967 hit film ''The Graduate''.

''Bookends'' was a #1 hit on Billboard's (North America) Pop Albums chart, as well as in the UK. Four singles charted: "A Hazy Shade of Winter," "At the Zoo," "Fakin' It" and "Mrs. Robinson," which peaked at #13, #16 and #23 and #1, respectively.

In 2003, the TV network VH1 named ''Bookends'' the 93rd greatest album of all time. In 2003, the album was ranked number 233 on ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. - Wikipedia
