Description


In May 2007 the Library of Congress gathered an unprecedented group of musicians together in Washington, D.C., to honor Paul Simon as the first recipient of the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Marc Anthony, Shawn Colvin, Art Garfunkel, Alison Krauss, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Lyle Lovett, James Taylor, Stevie Wonder and a host of others joined Paul onstage in a multicultural tribute to the music of a great American artist—and a great American art form.
This gala event, called "the greatest night of popular music ever presented in our nation's capital", was beautifully filmed and
captured with stunning 5.1 Surround Sound for a truly pure concert experience, and serves as a capstone on one of the most
celebrated musical careers of all time.

At nearly two hours, this DVD spans the entire body of work of one of America's greatest songwriters. Features live interpretations of nearly 20 Paul Simon classics—including "Graceland", "Bridge Over Troubled Water", "Me And Julio Down By The Schoolyard", "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover", "Late In the Evening" - plus archival performances with George Harrison and Miriam Makeba, as well as a tribute to Joe DiMaggio taped at Yankee Stadium.
Presented in 16:9 widescreen and featuring Dolby 5.1, DTS 5.1 and PCM stereo (uncompressed) audio mixes.
Includes a 24-page booklet based on the original Library of Congress event program.
