Overview

Originally released in 1985, Island Life compiles highlights from Grace Jones' 1977 debut through 1985's Slave to the Rhythm. It's a concise overview that features four Top Ten U.S. club hits ("I Need a Man," "Do or Die," "Pull Up to the Bumper," "Slave to the Rhythm"), as well as an additional smattering of choice cuts from her late-'70s collaborations with Tom Moulton and her stellar '80s work with Sly & Robbie. It's a decent introduction for casual fans but lacks crucial material like "Warm Leatherette" and "Nipple to the Bottle." A later edition, dubbed Island Life 2, adds "Pars," "Feel Up," and two remixes of "Sex Drive."

The propulsive singles "My Jamaican Guy" and "Slave to the Rhythm" introduced this gender-bending beauty to the music scene. Decades later there is still no female artist as avant garde as Grace Jones in terms of her fashion statements, musical deliveray, and fondness for avant garde performance theatrics. Ms. Jones is fierce, I tell you. Fierce!
