So let's take a look at your new album, Uncovered. Years ago, you recorded Cover Girl on which you took on other songwriters' material. I think it was a little more than twenty years ago. What are your thoughts about having such a long career?

If 'Rock For Grown-Ups' Existed, Josh Ritter's 'Sermon On The Rocks' Would Be the Album of the Year

"Sermon on the Rocks" is just out, but I've had it for a few months, and every time I listen to it -- and I listen to it often -- I feel glad to be breathing the same oxygen as the musician who made it. And this is odd. "Sermon" should take me months to accept and adore. Why doesn't it?

Reuben, you've built part of your story by engineering for acts like Basement Jaxx, Courtney Barnett and even The London Symphony Orchestra. Where does performing and recording as an artist yourself fit into your bigger creative picture?

On a humid Martha's Vineyard night, I drove across the street to our Performing Arts Center to see Art Garfunkel's concert. What I could not know is that short journey that I made would lead me into Mr. Garfunkel's profound encounter with what propels him into this world.

I' m 60. I could pass for younger. But why should I? I'd rather be honest than coy about my age. But while I'd never claim to be younger than I am, in my little AARP-aged heart I don't FEEL that old.

Regardless, Simon & Garfunkel's The Complete Albums Collection is an absolute essential. Each of these albums -- even the folk-drenched Wednesday Morning, 3am -- paint a picture of their era and suggest what we've lost spiritually and intellectually since then.
