Some Enchanted Evening

Genre: Pop; Lead Performer: Art Garfunkel; Producer (group): Atco

Rod Stewart may have paused in his lucrative march through the great American songbook, but Garfunkel has picked up the slack with Some Enchanted Evening, his classics-covering 12th solo album. Garfunkel’s style is more ethereal than Rockin’ Rod’s, and his keening version of ”Someone to Watch Over Me” is genuinely enchanting, as is a nicely swinging ”Let’s Fall in Love.” However, the singer’s lifeless reworking of ”I’m Glad There Is a You” merely proves that the line between delightful mood music and dreary elevator Muzak is a thin one.
