They released their first album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. on Columbia Records in October 1964.  It was not a critical or commercial success….and the duo split…..when during the next year, producer Tom Wilson lifted the song “The Sound of Silence” from the record, dubbed an electric backing onto it….and released it as a single that went to # 1 on the Billboard pop charts. 

In this video herewith, Art Garfunkel shows off his incredible voice….while being beautifully accompanied by a cello and a guitar….as he sings “I Love You And That’s All I Konw” and Scarborough Fair.
