Simon & Garfunke's First Studio Album (1964)

From Wikpedia

Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M. is the debut album by folk duo Simon and Garfunkel, released October 19, 1964. It was produced by Tom Wilson and engineered by Roy Halee. It initially flopped, but was re-released in January 1966 to capitalize on their newfound radio success and reached #30 on the Billboard pop charts. It is perhaps best known for the acoustic version of "The Sound of Silence" (then titled "The Sounds of Silence").
