iTunes Review

Released during the tense final years of apartheid, Paul Simon's Graceland introduced the buoyant textures of South African township music to vast international audiences. Simon’s collaborative genius—which calls on Los Lobos, Zydeco legend Good Rockin’ Dopsie and Ladysmith Black Mambazo—invented a new musical language and earned a 1987 GRAMMY® for Album of the Year. The fractured narratives and emotionally fragile characters are unforgettable—whether it's the divorcé and his kid en route to Graceland, the unattainable girl with diamonds on the soles of her shoes or the soft-in-the-middle hero of “You Can Call Me Al".

Got the original vynal, thank you my wee brother, and onSunday 15th July going to see and hear Paul Simon again. Best album ever.

Stunning

An incredible album made by so many incredible artists alongside Paul Simon. Happy Memories of listening to my Mum's vinyl copy many years ago. A beautiful album that is best listened to in its entirety. 🌟

My favourite album

Nothing quite like it, a resurrection of sorts, after the relative commercial failure of his "Hearts and Bones" album (H&B) It was in my personal opinion a very good album, but the title of one the tracks train in the distance foretold a greater prize in the form of the Graceland album, which contrary to popular opinion has little to do with the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, but nonetheless provides a backdrop to great music, a collaborative masterpiece which clearly defined Paul as a great artist beyond his great partnership with Art Garfunkel. PS had nothing to prove with this album, but even the harshest critics of his debut solo album H&B - I am led to believe where cementing its place in music folklore within days of its release. One reviewer here said its the best album ever. An understatement, I am sure was it not even better than that!!!

Paul Simon was one of the most successful and respected songwriters of the second half of the 20th century. Rising to fame in the mid-'60s, Simon's songs were mature and literate, but also melodically engaging, and spoke to the concerns and uncertainties of a generation. As the 1960s gave way to the '70s and '80s, Simon's work tended to focus on the personal rather than the larger world, but he also expanded his musical palette, and helped introduce many rock and pop fans to world music.
