“Rochmon Record Club: Paul Simon – Graceland”
On Tuesday September 21 Rochmon Record Club will converge Live in Caffe’ Lena to listen and learn about Paul Simon’s 7th solo album “Graceland”. Released in 1986 “Graceland” features some of Simon’s most beloved songs and includes performances by over 40 musicians, 13 of them drummers. Songs like “Boy In The Bubble”, “Graceland”, “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes”, “You Can Call Me Al” and “Homeless” are framed as western music with an extremely heavy African feel.
A Rochmon Record Club Listening Party is meant to inform and deepen our understanding of the history of the individual performers, songs and the stories that went into the making of this classic album. By listening together, we get to hear the music again for the first time.
