After 1970 the collaboration between Art and Paul SimonAndGarfunkel had run its course. Creative differences was the official explanation, but the way I see it, they just couldn’t stand each other. Producers and record executives were pushing them together, because their voice blended so well. But what started in the Fifties couldn’t go on anymore. Angel Clare is the debut album of Art Garfunkel, released in 1973.
The title Angel Clare is a character in Thomas Hardy’s novel Tess of the d’Urbervilles. Angel Clare is a farmer who is the love interest of the main character of the novel, Tess. For the life of me, I cannot tell why the album is called like that.
