Besides the luminously re-mastered original Graceland, the deluxe edition includes a treasure trove of details that shed light on the entire project that became Graceland.
The controversy that surrounded Simon following the release of this album is included in a fascinating DVD documentary Under African Skies.
The deluxe edition has a second CD which contains outtakes, one of which ‘Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes’ is jaw-droppingly beautiful with just a bass guitar and Simon’s voice. And finally another DVD contains a concert in Zimbabwe from 1987.
