"Warm Leatherette" is the fourth studio album by Grace Jones. Released in 1980, "Warm Leatherette" was the first of three albums produced by Chris Blackwell at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas. The album included covers of songs by the Normal, the Pretenders, Roxy Music, Smokey Robinson, Tom Petty and Jacques Higelin.
After the commercial success of "Nightclubbing" Island Records re-released the "Warm Leatherette" album with new artwork, replacing Jean-Paul Goude's original black-and-white studio portrait with pictures of Grace in performance taken from her groundbreaking 1981/82 tour "A One Man Show".
Most current Compact Disc editions include the longer or extended 12" mixes of selected tracks that originally appeared on the so-called "1+1" chrome audio cassette; side one consisting of the regular album and side two of five alternate versions.
