Paul Simon and Graceland


It is surreal for someone my age, but the first release of Paul Simon's landmark album Graceland, a candidate for one of the 10 best pop/rock records of all time as far as I am concerned, is already over 25 years ago. Lucy Jones of the Telegraph has writen a very interesting piece about this album, and the controversy that surrounded it due to the Apartheid in South Africa. Well worth reading. So is the even more critical piece at Pink Scare, by the way.
