1975 Art Garfunkel – Breakaway

Breakaway is the second solo studio album by Art Garfunkel. It was released in 1975 on Columbia Records. It was produced by Richard Perry who has produced albums for other artists such as Carly Simon. It includes three Top 40 singles: “I Only Have Eyes for You” (US #18, UK #1), “Break Away” (US #39) and the Simon And Garfunkel reunion duet, “My Little Town” which peaked at #9. “I Only Have Eyes For You” is noted also for being Garfunkel’s first #1 single in the UK. Breakaway has proven to be Garfunkel’s most successful solo album; although only peaking at number 9 in the United States, which was lower than his first album Angel Clare (US #5), it has been certified platinum by RIAA.
