The rhythm of the saints by Paul Simon( Recording )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Graceland by Paul Simon( )

13 editions published between 1986 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1986, Graceland sold 14 million copies worldwide and garnered both the Album and Song of the Year Grammy in 1987. Simon and the members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo performed on Saturday Night Live and appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone. It generated three hit singles and it kept Paul Simon and the Graceland tour on the road for five years. Its music was heard across the globe. Today, its music and its reputation still reach generations of music enthusiasts yet so many are unaware of how pivotal that one album was during the 1980s, 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. Graceland's 25th anniversary CD features the original album with bonus tracks including a unreleased tracks audio documentary produced in 2012 with Paul Simon discussing the writing, inspiration and recording of the song 'Graceland'
Jars of Clay by Jars of Clay (Musical group)( Recording )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The downward spiral by Nine Inch Nails (Musical group)( Recording )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine Inch Nails: Trent Reznor (vocals, various instruments). Additional personnel: Danny Lohner, Adrian Belew (guitar); Flood (synthesizer, programming); Andy Kubiszewski, Chris Vrenna, Stephen Perkins (drums). Engineers: Sean Beavan, Chris Vrenna, Alan Moulder. Recorded at Le Pig, Beverly Hills, California; The Record Plant A&M Studios, Los Angeles, California. THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL was nominated for a 1995 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Performance. "Hurt" was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Rock Song. Beginning with a barrage of gunshots and then exploding into a furious sonic onslaught, this record is like taking a hellride on the back of a bullet. Blistering recklessly toward its target on a wave of guitar, synthesizer, treated vocal, and beat Beat BEAT, THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL is like a virtual reality version of ATOMIZER (see Big Black) or even CONSUMER REVOLT (see also Cop Shoot Cop). It thrashes, it roars, it even retreats on occasion--pausing to reflect on its destruction (perhaps this bullet has a conscience). But it keeps pushing forward, toward its target, curdling into your ears and exploding inside your head. Dig the pain
