Digitally remastered edition of this 1981 album. In a career of myriad highlights Nightclubbing remains the high water mark of Grace Jones's imperial years with Island Records. It is indisputably the album on which her musical legacy rests, and, justly, regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time. In keeping with it's reputation as one of the best sonically sounding albums of the '80s and for the first time since it's debut on CD in 1987, Nightclubbing has been comprehensively remastered using the latest studio technology. Contains 'Walking in the Rain', 'Demolition Man' and the all-time classic 'Pull Up to the Bumper'.
Legendary influential performer Grace Jones offers a revealing account of her spectacular career and turbulent life, charting the development of a persona that has made her one of the world’s most recognizable artists.As a singer, model, and actress—a deluxe triple threat—Grace has consistently been an extreme, challenging presence in the entertainment world since her emergence as an international model in the 1970s. Celebrated for her audacious talent and trailblazing style, Grace became one of the most unforgettable, free-spirited characters to emerge from the historic Studio 54, recording glittering disco classics such as “I Need a Man” and “La Vie en Rose.” Her provocative shows in underground New York nightclubs saw her hailed as a disco queen, gay icon, and gender defying iconoclast. In 1980, the always ambitious Grace escaped a crowded disco scene to pursue more experimental interests. Her music also broke free, blending house, reggae, and electronica into a timeless hybrid that led to classic hits such as “Pull Up to the Bumper” and “Slave to the Rhythm.” In the memoir she once promised never to write, Grace offers an intimate insight into her evolving style, personal philosophies, and varied career—including her roles in the 1984 fantasy-action film Conan the Destroyer alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and the James Bond movie A View to a Kill. Featuring sixteen pages of stunning full-color photographs, many from her own personal archive, I’ll Never Write My Memoirs follows this ageless creative nomad as she rejects her strict religious upbringing in Jamaica; conquers New York, Paris, and the 1980s; answers to no-one; and lives to fight again and again.
These songs brings so many wonderful memories back from the 80's. Grace's music has always been top notch, the production as well as the choice of songs she's performed. Her cover of "La Vie en Rose"...

Out-of-print in the US! A comprehensive collection of Jones' post-disco work, most of it recorded between 1980 and 1982 in Nassau, Bahamas, with a truly remarkable studio band, including the legendary reggae rhythm team of Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, alongwith Marianne Faithful collaborator Barry Reynolds on guitar. The songs--which run the gamut from Smokey Robinson to Chrissie Hynde to Johnny Cash--are generally arranged in an innovative, ahead-of-their-time way (echoey yet spare, with lots of deep bass) that owes a bit to dub and in any case provides a perfect backdrop for Jones' Queen of the Undead vocals.
Acclaimed singer, songwriter and actress, Grace Jones brings you HURRICANE, a new album of original material, being released in the U.S. via PIAS America. Produced by Jones and Ivor Guest, her first release in 20 years, HURRICANE has received widespread praise in the U.K. and Europe where it was released in 2009. Includes the hits "Williams' Blood" and "Corporate Cannibal."
Three CD edition. 2015 release from the Pop icon containing a trio of albums plus rarities and unheard tracks. Signed to Chris Blackwell's Island Records, Jones' three albums Portfolio, Fame and Muse were produced by none other than Tom Moulton, 'the father of the disco mix,' who earned his title by assembling the first continuous mix side of an album in 1974 with Gloria Gaynor's Never Can Say Goodbye. After working with the Three Degrees, MFSB and Trammps, he was hot property, and Jones seemed a natural choice for him to work with. Disco a beguiling time capsule. Exciting, vibrant, camp, showy, it is the intro-to-coda of this early flowering of Grace Jones. It's a look back to another time, one that seems much further removed than the constantly evolving modernism of her Compass Point trilogy. This is the music that established Jones; glossily theatrical, toughly camp party pieces with portentous overtones. This beautiful newly-remastered collection brings together the three albums and unreleased tracks, in-era mixes and instrumental versions.
