“Simon and Garfunkel [Revisited] Live in Central Park” uses visual media, a terrific band and vocalists’ beautiful voices to bring to life an accurate and honest recreation of the concert’s original 21-song set list, including two songs not included on the 1982 concert album. The recreation pays homage to the folk-rock legends with Lee Lessack’s and Johnny Rodgers’ own voices and musicianship rather than impersonations or “tribute band” antics.
