Alison Krauss and Co - The Boxer / Graceland (Remastered Soundtrack)

Download videos:


This is from: Paul Simon & Friends, Gershwin Prize For Popular Song. I have to say this is a wonderful DVD. These two performances are very special. "The Boxer" is charming and "Graceland", Such a great groove, makes me do something That I haven't felt in years, it makes me want to DANCE. I guess that's because I'm a Human Being and not a Robot. And of course these are great Musicians. enjoy!

Where are the scant costumes, the heavy make up, the teased up hair and the barely dressed dancers?.\nOh wait Allison doesn't need all that she has the one thing that really matters TALENT.\n\nWhen they say a voice of an angel this is what they are talking about.
Alson Cole
Alison Krauss has an other-worldly ability to take really great songs to an even greater level. Her covers are interesting and fresh, and yet they all have her stamp. I love what she does with \

Butch McGrath
Other than the original by Simon and Garfunkel, Absolutely SUPERB! The quality of musicianship, a beautiful arrangement and top notch vocals, brought me to tears by the end of the song. Always felt that this song was, if any, the equal to Bridge over Troubled Water.
Charles Bird
I'd pay to hear Alison Krause sing the Denny's menu.

Hans Rosenthal
Independent of any particular song or appearance on stage, Alison Krauss has become a role model for all musicians around the globe: She is helpful, humble, and generous when it comes to singing live on stage with a world of fans in front of you. She is a great violonist, a fine singer, and a beautiful lady and band leader. Hans Rosenthal (A.H.R.D.) PS: I do not mention her numerous awards here... (Thanks to reddragonready for correcting my use of the English language.)

J dub
My God, Alison can sing! Such a pure voice.
J. W.
beautiful
James Bockenstette
Jerry Douglas is beyond the best. He is powerful and subtle at the same time. The song should have been originally recorded with him playing the dobro. It is better than Simon and Garfunkel.
James Welsh
Most awesome arrangement I've ever heard. Bass is terrific addition.
Jeri James Music
Absolutely Beautiful!!! In awe!!!!

i dont particularly like the dobro that much, but when jerry plays its like heaven , gosh he is the master. everything he does fits in perfectly and adds another demention to the tune. he is a genius .
Olson2u
It's a shame that not more people listen to Allison Krauss. I say that because the amount of hits this video got. It has been up since 2015. I find it hard to believe that only 500,000 people tuned in to this great video. Makes one wonder. What are people listening to today? Well it ain't classic country.

Alison's renditions are perfect - as always - thanks for posting !

Graceland on slide resonator guitar works so well - what a brilliant idea.

Scott Lewis
I had never thought that this Simon and Garfunkle classic could sound well in the bluegrass idiom, but it does! What a beautiful recording.\nJerry Douglas is a master of the dobro.\nShawn Colvin and Allison Krauss sing like angels.\nThank you so much for posting this song.
Steve Reed
I think the best thing that ever happened is Jerry Douglas being in or being a part of this wonderful band with Alison Krauss. I think he attracts other musicians that fit no who or what they play. I just love how this whole thing is working. Alison and Jerry keep getting better and better.
Susan Storm
Simply love her voice. She always has top notch musicians. I've never heard one of her songs that I didn't like.
Thomas Gaume
Great music, musicians, and Jerry Douglas absolutely ties all these great sounds together on his magical dobro.

I've now watched this at least a half dozen times and there's not a positive comment here that I don't 100% agree with. This is the artistry that truly makes America standout.... Can anyone helpout with a list of the supporting players?
