In homage to Grace Jones, whose birthday was on 19 May.
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,
