A 'remix' version of his great 1986 Grammy award-winner 'Graceland' has just come out. It's absolute garbage, unnecessary and it sucks! Buy the original 'Graceland' instead.

Fabulous artist over many years, saw him in Melbourne at the time of his original 'Graceland' tour. I remember the criticism he copped at the time for recording in South Africa, even though it was almost entirely with black South African artists - at the concert I saw, we had a whole row of Australian Aboriginal people sitting behind us who didn't seem to care about that controversy one bit. Neither did great artists like Miriam Makeba and Ladysmith Black Mambazo, whose overseas profiles were raised or even created by their mutual association with PS.

Great artist - but age catches up with everyone. Thanks to Mr. Simon for a whole lot of good music.

I saw him playing in Glasgow just this week. He sang and played for over two hours. A great concert.

He was working with yMusic at Eaux Claires Festival last year also but those were better known songs so not sure if that is included or not. The latest Paul Simon bio is absolutely nonsense but I do still occasionally still listen to the recent albums.

The latest Paul Simon bio is absolutely nonsense but I do still occasionally still listen to the recent albums.

I generally don't read bios. They are often what someone else says and usually have stuff that isn't true. Remember 'The Many Lives of John Lennon' by Albert Goldman? Paul and Yoko said it was trash. If a bio book is not authorized by the star or it isn't an autobio then I probably won't bother to read it. Albert Goldman's books are all the same template, different names.
