Warm Leatherette is the fourth studio album by Grace Jones, released on 9 May 1980 by Island Records. The album features contributions from the reggae production duo Sly and Robbie and is a departure from Jones' earlier disco sound, moving towards a new wave-reggae direction. Although having established herself as a performer with a string of club hits in the US and a large gay following, Jones had only achieved very modest commercial success with her first three disco albums.
Box set compilation of Grace Jones first three albums for Island Records with bonus tracks: original 12", 7" and disco versions + unreleased instrumental versions. Tracks 1-12 to 1-14, 2-11 to 2-14 and 3-13 are previously unreleased. Track 2-9 is erroneously not the vocal version but a backing vocals only version. This error was corrected for new pressings of this box set (Grace Jones - Disco). Replacement discs were also issued by Universal. Track 3-2 Suffer is erroneously omitted from tracklistings printed on back of box and on disc 3 but is listed in the booklet. Front cover sticker says: "3 CD Grace Jones' Disco albums Portfolio, Fame & Muse Remastered for the first time Featuring unreleased tracks, rare mixes & an extended booklet 0600753546482".
Grace Adelaide Jones (7 December 1899 – 14 November 2013) was a British supercentenarian, who was the oldest verified living person in the United Kingdom and the world's seventh oldest living person until her death at the age of 113 years, 342 days. She was the last known living British person to have been born in the 1800s. The Ultimate Collection released: 2006. Rare 12" Mixes released: 2004. The Collection released: 2004. Bulletproof Heart released: 2004.
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.
Grace Jones was born in 1948 (though most sources say 1952) in Spanish Town, Jamaica, the daughter of Marjorie (née Williams) and Robert W. Jones, who was a local politician and Apostolic clergyman. The couple already had two. children, and would go on to have four more. Robert and Marjorie moved to the East Coast of the United States, where Robert worked as an agricultural labourer until a spiritual experience during a suicide attempt inspired him to become a Pentecostal minister. The set contains most of the 12" mixes of singles from that album, plus two previously unreleased tracks from the Nightclubbing sessions, including a cover of the Gary Numan track "Me! I Disconnect from You". In October 2014, Jones was announced as having contributed a song, "Original Beast", to the soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part . .
