Simon and Garfunkel - The Kraft Music Hall - 03.01.1968 Video

Simon and Garfunkel - The Kraft Music Hall - 03.01.1968 Video

I decided to post this because of its rarity for one thing but mainly because its such a treat to watch two talented musicians with just a guitar and voice performing what has become timeless songs. Its also amazing to watch Paul Simon and his brother playing an acoustic guitar duo together. Notes from the original uploader below:

Simon & Garfunkel
"The Kraft Music Hall"
broadcast January 3, 1968

NTSC DVD video
No released material here. In fact, there is apparently no released Simon & Garfunkel on video from the sixties at all and no live in studio Simon and Garfunkel as audio releases either.
16 mm. black & white Film > U-Matic video tape > VHS > Final Cut Pro (with Pro Tools audio improvements) > DVD Studio Pro > VIDEO_TS file set.
There was quite a bit of dust on the film when transferred and it shows some during playback. However, it is still very good to excellent black and white video. It's got monophonic TV audio - not spectacular sounding but quite listenable. I have never seen this material circulated before now.

1. A Poem On The Underground Wall
2. talk
3. For Emily Whenever I May Find Her
4. Overs
5. talk
6. Anji [instrumental - Paul accompanied by his brother Ed on 2nd acoustic guitar]

I may have lost this one...searching
