This week (4 June) Paul Simon's Graceland celebrates its 25th birthday with the release of a new edition featuring the record, a documentary about the album's making, Under African Skies, and more. To mark this anniversary for the first album ever to receive five stars from Q (way back in our first ever issue), each day this week Paul Simon himself introduces a different song from the album.
Diamonds On The Soles of Her Shoes
Paul Simon: "The record was supposed to come out in the spring of 86 and uh, we were booked to do Saturday Night Live but Warner Bros decided to postpone the record till the fall. We were still booked for Saturday Night Live so I said well we're all here we might as well try to do another track so we did what became Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes."
