Win Paul Simon’s 25th Anniversary ‘Graceland’ Box Set
It was one of the greatest albums of the ’80s, and arguably right up there with any of Paul Simon‘s solo work. This year, ‘Graceland’ celebrates its 25th anniversary and we here at Ultimate Classic Rock have teamed up with Sony Legacy to provide you with the chance to win a copy of Paul Simon’s 25th Anniversary Edition ‘Graceland’ box set.
It also Simon heavily inspired by the music of South Africa, employing many of the musicians he came across on a mix tape (remember those?) to perform on the set. It made Ladysmith Black Mambazo internationally known after the success of ‘Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes.’ Plus, the title track enjoyed some significant play.
The album was also notable for its breakout single, ‘You Can Call Me Al,’ which featured a hilarious video with Simon sitting mostly silent while Chevy Chase mimicked all his parts to the camera.
Simon was rewarded with his efforts with the 1986 Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and he won the Record of the Year Grammy in 1987 for the title cut.
The box set comes with demo versions, alternate takes, and a documentary titled ‘Under African Skies.’
