Grace Jones - Living My Life (1989) Retail CD
While probably not all will agree, this album is Grace's finest. It is also Sly and Robbie's greatest collaboration. It was the last in a string of three great albums ( Warm Leatherette, Nightclubbing and Living My Life ) which featured Jamaican rhythms and settings of rock songs from the likes of Sting, Roxy Music and Chrissie Hynde. While all three are good, this one was the most sophisticated and the most consistent with no weak tracks. I dont know if it was Chris Blackwell's idea to put together the band that featured throughout this trio of albums, but if it was, it was the best idea he evermore… had. In my opinion, it was and still is a peerless line-up of quality players. The unsung hero is Barry Reynolds ( Marianne Faithfull's musical director for a number of years ) whose driving guitar adds the dynamic which counterpoints the rock solid rhythm section. Grace talks her way through and doesnt do too much singing but where she does as on the album's highpoint "The Apple Stretching and Yawning", she is more than adequate. After this classic, she teamed up with Trevor horn and co for the flawed 12 inch single Slave to the Rhythm and the album of the same name which is effectively an album of remixes of the title track and then on to relative obscurity. This is a short album (compared to today's standards) but it is sheer quality throughout.
