"The Boxer" is a song written by Paul Simon and recorded by the American music duo Simon & Garfunkel from their fifth studio album, Bridge over Troubled Water (1970). Produced by the duo and Roy Halee, it was released as a standalone single on March 21, 1969, but included on the album nine months later. The song is a folk rock ballad that variously takes the form of a first-person lament as well as a third-person sketch of a boxer. The lyrics are largely autobiographical and partially inspired by the Bible, and were written during a time when Simon felt he was being unfairly criticized. The song's lyrics discuss poverty and loneliness. It is particularly known for its plaintive refrain, in which they sing 'lie-la-lie', accompanied by a heavily reverbed snare drum.
"I Am a Rock" is a song written by Paul Simon. It was first performed by Simon alone as the opening track on his album The Paul Simon Songbook which he originally recorded and released in August 1965, only in the United Kingdom.

The Hit Sounds of Simon and Garfunkel was a "Cash-In" Simon and Garfunkel album released in 1967 by Pickwick Records. The label decided that it would capitalize on the duo's newfound fame by releasing this album, consisting of ten tracks recorded from the late 1950s and early 1960s while the duo still called themselves Tom and Jerry. Simon and Garfunkel sued Pickwick because the company was presenting the music as recently recorded material. Pickwick eventually withdrew the album from the market.

It was produced by long-time Simon & Garfunkel producer Roy Halee, alongside Art Garfunkel.

The songs "Watermark" and "Paper Chase" had previously been performed by Richard Harris on his albums A Tramp Shining and The Yard Went On Forever. Watermark is also noted as being the final recording sessions of legendary saxophonist Paul Desmond who died of lung cancer shortly thereafter. Actress Laurie Bird, Garfunkel's girlfriend, made the album cover's photograph.
