Weekly Vinyl – Grace Jones

18 Apr

 

Living My Life
Grace Jones
(1982)
SONY DSC
As I pulled this album out of the stack my eyes did a brief roll around in my skull.
Grace Jones. The image that flashed in my inverted eyes was her in that James Bond flick with Roger Moore and Christopher Walken. Not the image you want in your head.
But wow. What an album. The only way you would know that this album is over two decades old is because the beat is rather leisurely. Not as frenetic as you have it now.
This album is full of relevant and poignant songs.

The lyrics are great. The music is great.
After listening to both sides twice, I realised why I have it. It is a must have album.
