A unique time-capsule of Simon & Garfunkel’s writing process and of the late-1960s, “The Harmony Game” will be included on the forthcoming “Bridge Over Troubled Water: 40th Anniversary CD+DVD,” which will be released on March 8. Advanced copies of the 40th anniversary CD/DVD set will be given away at each screening.
