The album was recorded in late 1988/early 1989, during the third year of Cher's relationship to Rob Camilletti. She dedicated the album to him. The record is still regarded by many fans as one of her best.
The album was originally released with cover artwork featuring Cher sitting in front of a heart made of stone, creating the illusion of a skull (see picture below). The artwork was changed shortly after its release, making copies with the original artwork collector's items.
Cher recorded two other songs for the album "Don't Come Cryin' to Me" and "Some Guys" but neither made the final cut. A remixed version of "Don't Come Cryin' to Me" was included on the Geffen compilation album If I Could Turn Back Time: Cher's Greatest Hits. The reissue of the album, however, does not include the song. A demo version of "Some Guys" was included on the "If I Could Turn Back Time" 7 and 12 inch single.
"Heart of Stone" and "If I Could Turn Back Time" were both slightly remixed and included those versions on the single. The "Heart of Stone" remix is available on CD on the compilation If I Could Turn Back Time: Cher's Greatest Hits issued by Geffen Records.
