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'

Weekend in L.A. by George Benson( Recording )

11 editions published between 1978 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late '60s and early '70s, George Benson bounced back and forth between recording as a featured soloist in an orchestrated ensemble, and as a bandleader who seemed to really enjoy both interacting with his sidemen, and hearing them cut loose. By 1978 he was a star, on the strength of the hit album BREEZIN', release two years before. WEEKEND IN L.A. is definitely one of Benson's pop albums{u2014} he pretty much sticks to vocals on "Down Here on the Ground," for example, not touching his guitar until the final 30 seconds of the tune. Where he does play, he plays well, reprising "Ode to a Kudu" from BEYOND THE BLUE HORIZON, for example, and tossing in a quote from the Gershwins' "I Got Rhythm" during the title cut. The liner notes imply that the live tapes, recorded over two nights at the Roxy, were later enhanced in the studio
