Grace Jones’ Warm Leatherette gets hotter with extensive deluxe sets

Grace Jones fans have been well served by Universal Music in recent years with an excellent Nightclubbing reissue in 2014 and last year’s Disco box set which brought together Portfolio, Fame, and Muse in one smart package. This trend continues in 2016 with deluxe editions of Jones’ 1980 album Warm Leatherette due in June…

The first album in her critically-lauded ‘Compass Point Trilogy’ saw Jones working with an all-star session group (rhythm section Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, plus percussionist Uziah Thompson, along with keyboardist Wally Badarou, and guitarists Mikey Chung and Barry Reynolds) and leave ’70s disco well behind.

  • • two-CD deluxe edition (27 tracks)
