    Default Happy New Year Graceland Vinyl Karma

    I have an extra copy of Paul Simon's classic "Graceland" on vinyl, in very good shape. I have decided to offer it up for someone here to enjoy...

    The only "rules" I have is that I'd prefer you currently have a turntable in your setup, so the winner to be able enjoy it right away. Also, please don't ask in unless you don't have it in your collection already (or your copy is in need of replacing)...

    Please feel free to say something about Paul and/or his music if you desire...

    I will draw the winner next Friday, January 6th around 9:00 PM EST...

    Good luck and Happy New Year!!

    I've got a copy - it was pretty popular at a time when both vinyl and CD were still selling fairly strongly, I think.
    It's a great Karma, though - a very good album with some fabulous performances on it (the a cappella opening of Diamonds on Her Shoes sung by Ladysmith Black Mambazo with Paul Simon is just incredible, e.g.).

    If you have a nice turntable and a nice hifi and don't have this album... go "in" for this! :-)
    all the best,
    mrh

    Oh my! Definitely "in"! I have argued several times with friends that Graceleand may very well be the perfect album - it's just so timeless. And it's amazing how some lyrics have spoken to me 20 years ago... other lyrics finding their way to me a decade later... and the gravity of others finally dawning on me in the here and now. At times I might consider The Clash's - London Calling my favorite album. At others I might look to Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense. A lot of the time I'll go with The Cure's - Disintegration. But Graceland is always in the mix. So that's that.

    Always owned a copy on CD... never on vinyl,
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore
