A debut on this blog and the wonderful mishmash of sounds that came from Paul Simon’s famous “Gracelands” album. From 1986 and on first hearing it just sounds weird, a percussionist’s dream, with the accordion and fretless bass and stream of consciousness lyrics. It still brings a smile to my lips as I’ve not heard it for soooo long especially the 12″ version, the video is a great 80’s visual. B-side is a quieter title track of the album “Hearts And Bones” , Simon really knows how to do gentle and acoustic.
