Rochmon Record Club – Paul Simon – Graceland
May 19, 2022 at 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
On Thursday May 19 at 7PM The Rochmon Record Club will converge to listen, learn about Paul Simon’s 7th solo album “Graceland” at The Linda.
Released in 1986 “Graceland” features some of Simon’s most beloved songs and includes performances by over 40 musicians, 13 of them drummers. Songs like “Boy In The Bubble”, “Graceland”, “Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes”, “You Can Call Me Al” and “Homeless” are framed as western music with an extremely heavy African feel.
The Listening Party begins at 7pm with a live audio & video presentation by Chuck Vosganian aka “Rochmon”. We’ll listen to “The Captain & Me” on The Linda’s state of the art sound system. A Rochmon Record Club Listening Party is meant to inform and deepen our understanding of the history of the individual performers, the songs and stories that went into the making this iconic album. By listening together, we hear the album again for the first time.
