Is it in 5.1?

David

Strange for the blu-ray to be more than £10 cheaper than the DVD

Andrew M

Let’s hope so. But i think some press releases (or amazon listings) can be a bit previous too. I remember that Billy Joel Greatest Hits Vinyl from a few months ago. It’s still not confirmed its even being worked on let alone due to be released!

That said – I would much rather get early notification from you and get a preorder in than be late and end up possibly paying higher or not getting one. So happy with my preorder on this…….

Cheers, as always, for the heads up!

Andrew Mogford

Just got an email from Amazon saying no confirmed release date for this. Has it been cancelled?

Ralph MacGillivray

I was at this concert and it was a fine performance. While I enjoyed Graceland the real highlights were the performances of The Boxer with Jerry Douglas (from Alison Krauss’ band) on slide and Sound of Silence performed solo which was simply stunning.

Dave McAllister

I was there as well. The concert was incredible, and the atmosphere in the crowd was great. People singing to the Graceland tracks who couldnt have been born when it was released. Sound of Silence, with the crowd gently singing along, was magical and it looked like even Paul Simon was moved.

Mark Hanson

So, two DVD tracks with Jimmy Cliff not on the CDs. I get tired of artists doing that – unless it’s a time limit issue.

Gisabun

Ya. The Who, Bryan Adams and the Rolling Bones [among others] have done it before or variations. Most of the time, pull from the DVD main show and use as an “extra”.
Maybe there are reasons? Lack of room? Copyright issues?
Wait for a re-issue in 5 years. :-)

Saar Freedman

Amazing news:) me happy

DaveM

Do you know whether the bluray is packaged in a card tall card sleeve like the Live in New York City from 2012 and is the CD/DVD in a multi panel ‘Leonard Cohen’ live style box? Sounds anal but the LINYC looks really nice on the shelf:)

Robert

I am looking forward to this release. The live album from Simon & Garfunkel “Live At Central Park”, is one of my favorite live albums.

Ed HOSKIN

Superb! I was there and it was fantastic

Klaus

Possibly an interesting album/film, but: Paul Simon at Hard Rock Calling? What next – Laura Marling at One Love? ;-))

Urs

LOL!

Bassel Hassouna

Unrelated to Paul Simon but related to live albums, does anybody know anything about the who live at the isle of wight 2004?

Heinz

Thank you Paul.
