The Graduate is an album of songs from the soundtrack of Mike Nichol's movie The Graduate , featuring many songs from the folk-rock duo Simon & Garfunkel. Released on January 21, 1968.
Although the album features two versions of the acclaimed "Mrs. Robinson", neither is the full version as featured on Bookends. The first is an instrumental, while the second is abbreviated, tapering off as it does in the film. However, the other major song of the album, "The Sound Of Silence " is used three times in the film.
