Paul Simon "Hearts And Bones" Gold Promo Stamp QUIEX II pressing WB 23942-1, You can really hear the beginnings of "Graceland" on this album.Underrated.
The title track is about Simon and his then-girlfriend, Carrie Fisher, traveling through New Mexico ("one and one-half wandering Jews"), and also about love in general. (It is often wrongly assumed that Fisher was his wife at the time of this composition; however, the song is copyrighted 1982 and the couple did not marry until August 1983). The album also contains one of the few songs about numbers — "When Numbers Get Serious", which evokes the beginnings of the Information Age. Also unusual is "Think Too Much", actually two different songs with the same title and chorus line, dealing generally with thinking (and love).Although in 1983 the album was considered a commercial failure and signaled a low point in Simon's career, the passage of time has been kind to the album. It has been re-examined and considered to be one of Simon's more important records and a lyrically strong one. Robert Christgau later referred to the album as being "a finely wrought dead end."
There were two songs from this album released as singles. The first single with "Allergies" as the A-side and "Think Too Much (b)" as the B-side peaked at #44 in the U.S. Hot 100. The second single failed to chart, this being "Think Too Much (a)" (A-side) and "Song About the Moon" (B-side). (Also, the title track was released as the flipside to "Graceland" in the U.S. in 1986, and as the B-side of "The Boy in the Bubble" elsewhere in the world).
