EDITORS’ NOTES

This recording of Paul Simon’s celebratory 2012 London concert is notable for including most of his landmark 1986 album, Graceland. Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s rousing harmonies light up “Homeless,” while many of the album’s original players from South Africa re-create the springy rhythms and exuberant instrumentation. On other career highlights, Simon is upbeat (“Kodachrome”) and playful (“50 Ways to Leave Your Lover”), while the crowd echoes his haunting acoustic rendition of “The Sound of Silence” until it sounds like a hymn.
