Performer Notes
  • Legacy's 2017 double-CD/single-DVD/single-Blu-ray set The Concert in Hyde Park captures a celebratory concert Paul Simon gave in London's Hyde Park on July 15, 2012. For that show, he reconvened many of the musicians who played on 1986's Graceland, including Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Hugh Masekela, and invited Jimmy Cliff to play an extended mini-set early in the show, while bringing Jerry Douglas on-stage to play on "The Boxer" near the close. Simon runs through almost all of Graceland but not in order ("All Around the World or the Myth of Fingerprints" is MIA). He punctuates the album with lively versions of his classic hits -- mainly from his solo career, although "The Sound of Silence" is here -- but the focus remains on the elasticity of Graceland, since this band plays lively, somewhat unpredictable arrangements of these familiar numbers. More than the Graceland material itself, these versions show how the album continues to inspire Simon, pushing him to try new things even on old tunes. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
