"The Grace Jones Story" is the 2006 anthology of Grace Jones' career spanning from 1977 to 1993. "The Grace Jones Story" is Island Records/Universal Music's first attempt to create a comprehensive documentation of Jones' recording career; starting in 1977 with her debut album "Portfolio", and ending with the one-off Island Records single "Sex Drive" in 1993. The compilation however omits her biggest commercial hit, 1985's "Slave To The Rhythm", as well as other standout tracks like "Demolition Man", "Victor Should Have Been A Jazz Musician" and "Amado Mio".

Overview

Disc one gathers tracks from her first four albums: Portfolio, Fame, Muse and Warm Leatherette.

Disc two gathers tracks from five albums, an EP and a B-side single: "Warm Leatherette", "Nightclubbing", "Living My Life", "Inside Story", "Bulletproof Heart", "Sex Drive" and a B-side of the single "Private Life", but is sorely missing out on her 1985 collaboration with Trevor Horn, "Slave to the Rhythm".
