In a career of myriad highlights ‘Nightclubbing’ remains the high water mark of Grace Jones’s imperial years with Island Records. It is indisputably the album on which her musical legacy rests, and rightly considered one of the greatest albums of all time. Jones was dispatched to Island Records' Nassau studio Compass Point in 1981 accompanied by resident sessioners Sly & Robbie, Barry Reynolds, Michael Chung, Wally Badarou and 'Sticky' Thompson. Together they created a sophisticated mêlée of sound, blending post-punk cool with a killer JA reggae vibe and a Studio 54 disco catwalk sensibility. It’s a perfect example of artist and musicians working in complete accord. The album contains the all-time Grace classics in ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’, ‘Walking In The Rain’, ‘Demolition Man’, 'I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)' and of course the Bowie / Iggy Pop-penned title track. There is magic in its every groove. In keeping with its reputation as one of the best sonically sounding albums of the ‘80s and for the first time since its debut on CD in 1987, ‘Nightclubbing’ has been comprehensively remastered using the latest studio technology. It comes in a variety of formats including a 2CD version with bonus tracks and an irresistible gatefold 2LP package on 180gm vinyl. Not only are the deluxe CD and gatefold vinyl formats supplemented with a host of extended mixes, some of them rare, they also come with two completely unreleased tracks from the ‘Nightclubbing’ sessions. The first of these is ‘Me? I Disconnect From You’, a cover of the Gary Numan / Tubeway Army classic from 1979 and the second an entirely new song, ‘If You Wanna Be My Lover’.
