“Warm Leatherette” by Grace Jones - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1980Album Chart of the Decade: 1980s

TJR says

A big improvement here, although these are mostly all cover versions. Sly and Robbie’s slight push to reggae dub production style helps to give Ms Jones some much needed credibility. Having said that, it’s only her version of Chrissie Hyndes’ “Private Life” (7.9) that really stands out.
