1979 Art Garfunkel – Fate For Breakfast

Garfunkel, Art 1979Fate for Breakfast is the fourth solo studio album by Art Garfunkel released in March 1979 on Columbia Records. It was his first album to miss the U.S. Billboard Top 40 and his first album containing no U.S. Top 40 singles. However, the European release of the album does include a different version of the song “Bright Eyes”, which was featured in the film version of the novel Watership Down, and reached the number-one spot in the United Kingdom, and became the biggest selling single of 1979 there. Likewise, the album itself garnered international success, reaching the top-ten in some European countries. The album was issued in five different sleeves, each with a different shot of Art Garfunkel at the breakfast table.
