I have a reason to believe we all will be received in Graceland

Just after the release of Paul Simon’s latest album, So Beautiful or So What, in April, Simon announced a 25th anniversary tour of his number-one album, and my absolute favorite, Graceland. I can remember being 8 years old in the back of my dad’s old Camry singing each track lyric for lyric.

 I don’t know if it’s the poetic genius of Simon’s  lyrics, the beautiful harmonies provided by  Ladysmith Black Mombazo, or the meld of  American folk and African rhythms, but this  album is stuck in my soul.

The album is spiritual, seamless, and vibrant.  The 25th anniversary tour is slated to begin  sometime in 2012. I don’t think I would miss it  for the world.

Paul Simon will be performing in  Bloomington, Indiana on November 20 at I  Indiana University and in Highland Heights,  Kentucky at the Bank of Kentucky Center on  November 22.
