Classic Album Sundays Jazz, Classical & World presents the album that helped introduce the music of South Africa to the Western pop world. Paul Simon’s “Graceland” was somewhat controversial in that Simon ignored a ban on working in South Africa due to the country’s apartheid regime. However, it did help bring attention to the country’s rich artistry and political plight. The excellent documentary “Under African Skies” investigates this debate. The album did win a Grammy for “Record of the Year” and the gorgeous songs were beautifully recorded by Roy Halee. Come along to the session for a vinyl replay on our audiophile hi-fi preceded by a presentation from Philip Bergman.
