Album Description
Available in: Country Icon
Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. is the debut album by folk duo Simon & Garfunkel, released October 19, 1964. It was produced by Tom Wilson and engineered by Roy Halee. On its cover sleeve the album bears the subtitle: "Exciting new sounds in the folk tradition".
The album was initially unsuccessful, having been released in the shadow of The Beatles' arrival on the scene. This resulted in Paul Simon's move to England and Art Garfunkel's resumption of his university studies at Columbia University in New York City.
Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. was re-released in January 1966 to capitalize on their newly found radio success with a later re-mixed electric/acoustic version of The Sounds of Silence, and so the album reached #30 on the Billboard pop charts. It is perhaps best known for the acoustic version of "The Sound of Silence".
In several concerts, Art Garfunkel related that during the photo sessions for the album cover, several hundred pictures were taken that were unusable due to the "old familiar suggestion" on the wall in the background, which inspired the song "A Poem on the Underground Wall".
The album cover photo was shot at the Fifth Avenue and 53rd Street Subway Station in New York City.
