Grace Jones: Warm Leatherette (Island ILPS9592)
Ira Robbins, Trouser Press, August 1980
THIS ALMOST defies weirdness. Grace Jones is an awfully tacky disco singer next to whom the B-52's women look tasteful. Warm Leatherette's musicians are reggae and session luminaries; recording was done in Nassau, with Island head Chris Blackwell co-producing.
