Paul Simon “Under African Skies”

Earlier this year Paul Simon re released his classic solo album “Graceland” in a variety of packages that include bonus tracks and new information about the recording and reception of this great LP.  The centerpiece to this campaign is the great, feature length documentary “Under African Skies”.  The film is directed by Joe Berlinger, the documentarian who filmed the Metallica “Some Kind of Monster” movie.  A must have on Blu Ray, Paul Simon is shown making the album, dealing with the aftermath of Graceland’s success and criticism and reuniting with the original musicians in South Africa in the summer of 2011.  I have included links to the LP release and the Blu Ray documentary as well as the official trailer.
