It generated three hit singles and it kept Paul Simon and the Graceland tour on the road for five years. It's music was heard across the globe. Today, it's music and it's reputation still reach generations of music enthusiasts yet so many are unaware of how pivotal that one album was during the 1980 s, how it helped birth the idea of World Music and revived the career of one of America's most important songwriters. How it influenced the political progress of South Africa a country divided by institutionalized racism, causing and then transcending years of controversy. How in fact the album came to be in the first place.
