    WOW!!! Two unknowns…Carol King & Paul Simon…together in 1959!!! I was 9 years old and in 5th grade….in a few short years he and Art Garfunkle wouild be superstars and by 1971 Carole would have the album (Tapestry) which would become the best selling album of all time by a female artist (up to that time)!!! Thanx for the memories!!!
