"... with Smokey Robinson and Chrissie Hynde scripting adventures in dominance and fellow Jamaicans Shakespeare and Dunbar adding cyborgian oomph, the theoretical allure of her persona is finally made flesh ... B+."
- Robert Christgau

"... Jones essentially shed the skin of disco diva and became an icon of androgyny in the new wave era. Producers Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare guided Jones’s stylistic transformation ... melding rock, reggae and new wave with a glossy production sheen, Sly and Robbie cannily matched Jones with material ripe for reinterpretation ..."
- PopMatters.com

Grace Jones released Warm Leatherette in 1980, greeting the new decade with an updated sound after a streak of disco hits in the 1970s. Produced by Sly and Robbie and other cutting edge producers, the album finds Jones covering Roxy Music, Smokey Robinson, Tom Petty and more in a musical hybrid described as a blend of rock, reggae and new wave. The Pretenders cover Private Life was a UK top 20 song for Jones, one of her most successful British singles.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
