Editorial Reviews

Philip Glass co-wrote the album closer The Late Great Johnny Ace and Nile Rodgers brought a fresh sound to this 1983 Top 40 LP-but the centerpiece is a set of reflective, deeply moving Simon songs. The hit Allergies ; the beguiling title cut, and the rest of the LP join bonus acoustic demos and the unissued work-in-progress Shelter of Your Arms !

This is one of my favorite solo albums from Paul Simon, and is pretty much his last album before he abandoned traditional folk-pop song structures and started exploring African and Latin rhythms full-time. It was meant to be a Simon and Garfunkel album at one point, and the songs have moments that cry for Garfunkel's sweet, high voice, but Simon pulls it off without Garfunkel just fine. The lyrics are great, the melodies are interesting and the album even rocks once in awhile (Think Too Much in particular). Listen to three masterpieces in "Rene and Georgette Magritte," "Train in the Distance" and "The Late Great Johnny Ace" which pays homage to all fallen rock stars, John Lennon in particular. This album also documents the demise of Simon's marriage to Carrie Fisher in deep and meaningful ways. He's really in top form here even if he didn't have a hit single or a platinum album come out of it. This album is more personal and emotional and polished than either the forgotten One Trick Pony which precedes it (also worth buying) or the mega-hit "Graceland" which came next. Truly underrated and deserved much, much better. I think its lack of sales so dismayed him and the success of Graceland so influenced him, that he hasn't written a song in the old folk-pop format since. Too bad.

This is one of those Cds I've had but never really listened to .I finally got around to giving it a good listen and it's been in my Cd player for about a month . It's a great Cd . It was recorded in 1983 somewhere in between One Trick Pony and Graceland . All the songs are really good and impeccably recorded .
From the opening track " Allergies " to the closing track " The Late Great Johnny Ace " the album shows why Paul Simon is near the top of any list of singer/songwriters or lyricists of any genre . Like I said all the songs are really good from the acousticy title track and Rene And George Magritte...to Song About Moon and Train In The Distance ..great stuff . And I never realized what a great song The Late Great Johnny Ace was with it's poignant lyrics and tempo changes .
The thing that really makes this album is the sound quality . This Cd is an audiophile's dream ..lots of detail , the acoustic guitars and percussion sound great and Paul Simon's voice is as smooth as it gets .
A very , very good album .

Almost unbelievably, at this writing there are only 13 reviews written for this incredible album. Recently, critics and fans (including myself) have been falling all over themselves to heap accolades aplenty upon SURPRISE and SO BEAUTIFUL/SO WHAT as if an aging poet laureate of the folk/rock would have been finished by now and is significantly adding to their body of work with always fresh and new creative genius. They call the new stuff “the best since Graceland” as if that monument alone is/was his testament to the world of music history. Well history has been more kind to HEARTS & BONES than the initial sales were and it is actually selling better as a back-catalogue item. Too bad for the miscreants who either missed or dismissed it in ’83. One fool has written their 2-star review here and I see no one deems it helpful at all, and that is because those who really know this album have nothing but greatness to say about it and those who haven’t listened to it…ever…well you get the picture. The main thrust of my initial point is that some Simon fans are probably way too hard-nosed and narrow-minded in their vision of what Paul Simon really is. If you grew up with him, as I did, from Wednesday Morning 3 AM in “the year of the Beatles, the year of the Stones” you can literally watch his accelerated Darwinian evolution take place. The sounds on 1970’s Bridge Over Troubled Water”, songs like Keep The Customer Satisfied, Baby Driver, The Only Living Boy In New York, etc.Read more ›

Close to perfect. About to give away my age here, but I remember the impact of the first (3 AM) album and have followed Simon (with and post-Garfunkle) ever since. This has always been one of my favorites. The musicianship, innovation, and poetry are remarkable - one of his extra-intelligent efforts. I never get tired of it and if The Late Great Johnny Ace doesn't break your heart a little, you may not have one. May be the end of his so-called "pop" phase, as other reviewers have said, but sure paved the way to Graceland, where we all must go.

"Hearts and Bones" is one of Paul Simon's best solo albums. The title song is wonderful -- among his very best -- but most of the other songs are treasures as well. I particularly like "Allergies", "Train in the Distance", and "Rene and Georgette Magritte with their Dog After the War". Although the album was not that commercially successful, Paul's songwriting is strong and polished -- this was really the best of his solo albums before "Graceland". My only negative reaction to this particular release is that Sony tacked on four "bonus tracks" that are unreleased demo or in-progress versions of the songs on the album. They are interesting for seeing how Simon develops his songs, but hearing them at the end of the well-crafted album detracts from the impact of listening to the whole album.
