Please be aware that the above track listing is not correct. This is the 'Island Master' release, which has half of one song faded out, cuts to other tracks, the link sections removed, and the tracks in the wrong order.

The correct track listing should be (original track times in brackets)

1. "Jones the Rhythm" - 5:24 (6:26)
2. "The Fashion Show" - 4:05 (6:26)
3. "Operattack" - 2:16 (2:45)
4. "Slave to the Rhythm" - 6:12 (6:35)
5. "The Frog and the Princess" - 7:34 (7:04)
6. "The Crossing (Oohh the Action...)" - 4:51 (4:58)
7. "Don't Cry -- It's Only the Rhythm" - 2:53 (2:53)
8. "Ladies & Gentlemen: Miss Grace Jones" ("Slave to the Rhythm" 7" Edit) - 4:27 (5:56)

Why someone at Island decided that fans of this album would want such a travesty released on CD, I do not know. Were the original album available on CD, I would have given it four or five stars.

This is the complete version, exactly as it was originally released on vinyl back in `85. The sound is superb and reveals details which were totally lost on previous cd versions. The whole 'Slave To The Rhythm' musical-biography-concept was so far ahead of it's time that, thirty years on, it is STILL ahead of it's time. There will never be another album like this.
Also, I was fortunate enough to be sent a review copy of Grace's upcoming autobiography, 'I'll Never Write My Memoirs' - it is FABULOUS! Grace tells her story with warmth and humour, and her insight into her place in today's sterile music industry is as razor-sharp as her cheekbones, though never bitchy.

I completely agree with the reviewer who had the sense to point out that this is nowhere near the original vinyl version. The original L.P is fresh, exciting and an incredible soundscape of innovative musical style and production that has you on the edge of your seat, whilst Ms Jones screams, laughs, giggles, whispers and belts out variations on the "Slave" theme. It's a rollercoaster and my original vinyl version is practically worn out!
I cannot believe the mess that Island have made of the original on this CD by taking half the thing apart and sticky taping it back together with most of the highlights missing! Do they not understand that the whole point of music and art is presenting a piece of work that is complete and whole in everyway the artist made it to be. It's a bit like looking at the Mona Lisa with a moustache painted on it and a mohican hairstyle and passing it off as an original. I haven't bought another island record since this pile of halfcut rubbish was released. It's a travesty. Do island not realise that people actually LISTEN to music they buy or do they assume the record buying public are just plain stupid.
1. Island - reissue this record in it's original form, sleevenotes and all.
2. Put some extra tracks on from the same era (There must be some out-takes somewhere.)
3. Call it a special edition, or whatever, just get the original master tapes-listen to it and use your imagination!

A pity the reviews for the Island version of this CD are attached to the Culture Factory issue as this is the orignal album and not edited. The sound quality is excellent and if you are a Grace Jones fan you should definitely buy this version.

Amazing album like the original LP version with interviews. Amazon please do not couple this edition to the old CD version as this one from Factory is excellent!!

This is the 2015 Collector's Edition yet there are reviews on this same page from a few years ago. Ignore those reviews, they are for an older reissue that is rather disliked. How does this happen?

Grace Jones was without doubt one of the most memorable characters of the 80's. Her outrageous image, her legendary temper and of course the stunning trilogy of music she created at Island Records under the supervision of Island founder Chris Blackwell. Her appearances in blockbuster hits such as: "Conan the Destroyer" and "A View to a Kill" only further improved her already immense popularity, and even though her erratic behaviour eventually clouded her musical output, her music is still highly influential, even today. She "left" Island records after "Living My Life," and spend the next three years as a movie actress and being a TV personality. In 1985, Trever Horn approached Grace with the idea of making an autobiography, testing his new ideas about layering and juxtaposing instruments into one mass; he had already had success experimenting this new concept, producing Frankie Goes to Hollywood's first two albums. He called upon some big names such as: Steve Lipson (engineer) and Bruce Woolley (guitar, bass and keyboards), to create this new project. There's a lot of names behind this project (I actually counted around 40 musicians; producers and engineers), an awful a lot of names for one song. The album is built around one song, divided in 8 pieces; from the striking opening of "Jones the Rhythm" to the quiet hush of "The Crossing (Ooh the Action)." The album ranges from striking r'n'b grooves to soft New Age music, intertwined with interview cuts about Jones' highly fascinating life. In the end, Slave to the Rhythm isn't really that much about Jones. She provides the vocals, with her almost operatic voice, but one doesn't really notice her. The album is more a display of Trevor Horn's amazing capability as a producer.
