Kodachrome....by GF-1
 
Well, it was the first track played at a very memorable Paul Simon gig in Hyde Park last weekend. Really a one-off, with appearances by Jimmy Cliff and Hugh Masekela, plus Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the band who played on the original Gracelands tour.

This gig included every track from Gracelands, as it's 25 years since it was released - and a rarity in that there isn't a single weak track on it - plus a whole pile of other Paul Simon classics.

I took the GF-1 and Voigtlander 75mm Color Heliar with me - nice and small especially compared to the monster lenses the press photographers were using just behind me (they needed the magnification as Paul Simon is not exactly huge!). A few shots from my combo, which I reckon did quite well considering:

Jimmy Cliff is the cool dude (with a great voice) in the red T-shirt:

The video backdrop gives the clue that the title track was being played here:
