iTunes Editors’ Notes

Nightclubbing marks the point where Grace Jones really became Grace Jones. The computer-driven futurism and stylistic combinations of the early '80s fit Jones, who always seemed—both physically and artistically—like a creature from another dimension. These recordings exude confidence and personal style, and like the great cabaret matriarchs before her, she became a high stylist for the times in which she lived. Nightclubbing touches on the complete panorama of her musical interests, from Brian Eno-esque art rock to funk, punk, and new wave. Most importantly, however, the album united Jones with the legendary session group The Compass Point All-Stars, who were founded by the Jamaican duo of Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. The group’s innovative spin on Jamaican rhythms reconnected Jones with her roots, and collectively, they were all able to inject new wave with a much-needed dose of earthy Kingston grit. Bizarre but utterly danceable, “Pull Up to the Bumper,” “Nightclubbing,” and “I’ve Seen That Face Before (Libertango)” are brilliant and refreshing music amalgamations of the '80s.

Customer Reviews

Put some Grace in yo face

One of the very first artists i remember listening to back when i was about 14 was Grace Jones, My Uncle from Manhattan always played the Nightclubbing record and some of her others (yes only vinyl back then). Nightclubbing started my love for her music so i got just about everything she put out to present day. Grace has such an exotic, mysterious and cutting edge sound. Her music was always ahead of its time and will always be funky. I'm glad its part of iTunes so younger generations can experience her!

One of My Favorite Albums

I have been a fan of Grace Jones' music for years. This album is easily her best. It marks a clean breakway from earlier disco past with a rather ahead-of-its-time introduciton of (what most would consider) "World Music". Sure, she does the dance thing on "Pull Up to the Bumper" & "Feel Up", but Jones' unusual style is the perfect match for "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)" & "Walking In the Rain". Both "Use Me" and her rendition of "Demolition Man" are rock like only Ms Jones can do. If you decide to pick up this album, or a few tracks, be certain to also check out "Warm Leatherette", which is another Grace Jones must-have. Few people realise that Grace Jones even had albums or sang, thinking her more of a model or just famous for fame's sake, but her late 70's early 80's albums' influences are still there today.

Trip the Light Fantastic!!

Grace is as cool as they come. PLAY IT LOUD and shine in the night. Love it.

Grace Jones was one of the more unforgettable characters to emerge from New York City's hedonistic Studio 54 disco scene during the late '70s. Born May 19, 1952, in Kingston, Jamaica, Jones studied theater at Syracuse University before launching a career as a model. Jones' statuesque and flamboyant look proved to be a hit in the New York City nightclub scene, which led to a recording contract with Island Records in 1977. While such disco-based albums as 1977's Portfolio, 1978's Fame, and 1979's Muse...
