Grace Jones – I Need A Man (Disco Mix)
Otherwise I get so angry I throw things. It seems hard to believe that anything but heartbreak—not to mention psychoses—could emerge from such a mix of temperaments. That may indeed be the vision of the end. But for the past 20 months the relationship between avant-garde chanteuse Grace Jones, 27, and French artist Jean-Paul Goude, 38, has been a kind of organic miracle.
Under his influence as lover, director and producer, Grace has improved her disco act and scored at Studio 54, Roseland and gay haunts like Les Mouches. That very success ironically has meant problems for Jean-Paul. Their affair began in August , when Grace, a Jamaica-born former model, called on acquaintance Jean-Paul for esthetic advice on her act.
The sexual dalliance begun during their collaboration later blossomed into romance. Goude discovered that midway in the ensuing tour when he offered a suggestion she took as personal criticism.
He told Grace to forget it and pushed her. Humiliated, she raked her fingernails across his face, and Goude grabbed her by the throat. Perhaps their unusual domestic arrangement is partly responsible. There both also work on their separate projects—Grace on song lyrics and her third album and Jean-Paul on a book of his photographs as well as on her act.
They regularly eat out. Jean-Paul has been fascinated with women like Grace since his youth. The son of a French engineer and an American-born dancer, he grew up in a Paris suburb. I had jungle fever. When he first saw Grace in performance, he admits he was bowled over by her close-cropped androgynous look. For her part, Grace has always had an affinity for European men. Raised in Jamaica and Syracuse, N. The alliance she and Jean-Paul have formed may be a bit one-sided.
I love the contacts, and an artist needs a woman with him. He feels that if her new album is a success, there will be less need for elaborate sets and gimmicks for her disco act—and thus less need for him.

Of course, the usefulness of this slightly hidebound allergy to compilation albums crumbles the further one travels from the core of the rock canon. Certainly, if you want to hear Grace Jones , a singer who rose to international prominence in discotheques, soaring at the height of her powers, you need to understand how she ruled over discerning dance floors. It makes complete sense then, that a well-curated anthology including extended, nightclub-facing mixes would beat any studio record. This double album, complete with outtakes and hard-to-find single versions, provides an unbeatable introduction to the work she recorded during an imperial phase spanning to , when she made the albums Warm Leatherette, Nightclubbing and Living My Life.

Disco a beguiling time capsule. Exciting, vibrant, camp, showy, it is the intro-to-coda of this early flowering of Grace Jones. It's a look back to another time, one that seems much further removed than the constantly evolving modernism of her Compass Point trilogy. This is the music that established Jones; glossily theatrical, toughly camp party pieces with portentous overtones.
