Grace Jones at wilderness festival 2017 was literally amazing, she now owns my soul. Living My Life' (1982) opens with the six minute delight 'My Jamaican Guy' (written solely by Grace Jones and based on a member of Bob Marley's group The Wailers whom she had fallen in love with), a sparse but sprightly arranged reggae/funk/new wave/soul mid-tempo ballad. And just listen to that glorious opening on the track - way ahead of its time and still sounds cool today, a fact reflected in the number of times it has been sampled by others.

1982’s Living My Life was the last in Grace Jones’ unofficial Compass Point Trilogy : the string of albums she recorded in the Bahamian studio of Island Records, alongside a predominantly Jamaican backing band led by bassist Sly Dunbar and drummer Robbie Shakespeare. Up to this point, Jones had been known mostly for her radical reinterpretations of other artists’ songs, but Living My Life contains only one cover- The Apple Stretching, a glorious poetic tribute to New York City written by Melvin Van Peebles. The rest of the album consists of Jones’ originals

The album followed her definitive Nightclubbing and was a commercial disappointment, although it had some nice material and excellent production and arrangements. But she often sounded distant and detached, and not even the great support could totally overcome Jones' less than enthusiastic performances.
