The Ultimate Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
It's not quite ultimate, but it is pretty close, containing three discs of prime Grace Jones, from her 1977 debut through the number one 1993 club single "Sex Drive." Unsurprisingly, since it is so extensive, The Ultimate Collection a European release from Universal goes too deep for casual Jones fans. It contains two versions of some cuts, like "My Jamaican Guy," included in its album and extended 12" mixes, and it does include quite a bit of material from her straightforward disco albums released in the '70s, when she had to be given much mainstream attention. Nothing of great significance is missing here.
