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."
Pull Up to this eclectic classic
The very funky "Pull Up to the Bumper" was an Urban radio staple on the mix shows on Saturday nights back in the day. That song and Grace's covers of "Love Is the Drug" and "La Vie en Rose" pretty much cover the spectrum of what she was all about- a gorgeous Jamaican model who was unique in character and personality and all the way off the beaten path. If you thought Grace Jones was just a woman with a man's haircut, or an actress, download a few of these tracks and prove yourself wrong.
