This material is fascinating, as at least two of the tracks (from what I can tell) are Simon and Garfunkel recordings of tunes from the aborted Think Too Much reunion project. "Train In The Distance" and "Song About The Moon" both have Art doing his trademark harmonies, and the latter has him singing a verse solo ("The laughing boy..." middle eight). The other material is all very rough in comparison to Hearts And Bones (the official release), with different instrumentation and vocals. In the case of "Rene And Georgette Magritte With Their Dog After The War," there are no vocals at all. My guess is that this is where the album stood when Paul decided to pursue Hearts And Bones as a solo project.
