I have been a fan of Grace Jones since the early days.  ‘I need a man’ is from the first album Portfolio.  Vamp was not the best horror film, but Grace looked and sounded great.  The body painting is quite impressive. 

I really love this version of ‘Still Life’.  Thaat’s the romantic in me.  The concert footage in the ‘Williams Blood’ video is from the ‘comeback’ concert at the RFH in London.  I am pleased to say that Christie and I were there, and  it was a brilliant performance.  An amazing night.

It is a great pity that the record company did not see fit to release the 2 albums that Grace recorded in the 1990s.  I hope they eventually do get released, and there are plenty of other Grace Jones fans out there that would be as interested,
