Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe reissue of "Warm Leatherette" represents a watershed moment in the career of Grace Jones. The first of her much loved and critically-lauded 'Compass Point trilogy' it saw the star embrace contemporaneous new wave (The Normal's 'Warm Leatherette', The Pretenders' 'Private Life'), old soul (The Marvelettes' 'The Hunter Gets Captured By The Game' and leftfield rock (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' 'Breakdown', Roxy Music's 'Love Is The Drug'). All sounded like nothing you'd ever heard before once Grace had finished with them. This new Hi-Res reissue it's a perfect demonstration of players, writers and production team at the very top of their game, headed up by a singular performer reaching the apex of her career to that point.

Grace Jones released Warm Leatherette in 1980, greeting the new decade with an updated sound after a streak of disco hits in the 1970s. Produced by Sly and Robbie and other cutting edge producers, the album finds Jones covering Roxy Music, Smokey Robinson, Tom Petty and more in a musical hybrid described as a blend of rock, reggae and new wave. The Pretenders cover Private Life was a UK top 20 song for Jones, one of her most successful British singles.

Grace Jones fans have been well served by Universal Music in recent years with an excellent Nightclubbing reissue in 2014 and last year's Disco box set which brought together Portfolio, Fame, and Muse in one smart package. This trend continues in 2016 with deluxe editions of Jones' 1980 album "Warm Leatherette", her first album in her critically-lauded "Compass Point Trilogy" saw Jones working with an all-star session group (rhythm section Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare, plus percussionist Uziah Thompson, along with keyboardist Wally Badarou, and guitarists Mikey Chung and Barry Reynolds) and leave '70s disco well behind.
