Ladysmith Black Mambazo: Live!

  Live! draws from all realms of LSMB's long career, including their most well known song, “Homeless”, which was co-written with Simon for Graceland.   It is quite simply the culmination of the dream Shabalala had so many years ago, and the perfect choir he envisioned.

Echo & the Bunnymen rose to prominence at the end of the punk era and had a lasting impact on the New Wave movement that followed.
