Paul Simon releasing 25th anniversary edition of 'Graceland'
We've reported on many, many classic album reissues this spring, especially due to the impending Record Store Day retail holiday. Paul Simon's "Graceland" is getting the treatment of both for its 25th anniversary... a year late.
The delay of the 1986 album revisit may have to do in part with the fact that some reissues will be packaged with "Under African Skies," documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger's film on the making-of the album and its aftermath. The movie made its bow at Sundance earlier this year.
Legacy Recordings is putting out a standard CD, box set, CD/DVD, vinyl and other versions of "Graceland" on June 5, along with a Blu-Ray of "Under African Skies." Check out the Graceland25 website for more details on each.
"Under African Skies" will play in limited theaters in New York and Los Angeles on May 11; following that, its television premiere will be on A&E, date TBA.
