"Graceland" is an exemplary slice of Anglophile pop, rife with lilting folky textures a la Aztec Camera and Justin Hayward's post-Haircut One Hundred solo forays. The single would be released several times over in multiple formats in the years to follow. The flip, "Sweetness" is considerably more chilled-out, gravitating toward the AOR realm.
