Grace Jones - She's Lost Control

In 1980, Grace Jones released Warm Leatherette, the first of three albums recorded with Sly & Robbie at their Compass Point Studio in Nassau, Bahamas. "She's Lost Control", her exquisite version of the Joy Division track, wasn't on any of these albums, but ended up on the B-side of the "Private Life" single from Warm Leatherette, the Pretenders song that actually sounds better in Jones' version. I can't say the same for "She's Lost Control", but it's not far off either, and the eight minute plus 12" version is killer stuff. It's of course more thanks to Sly & Robbie than Grace Jones and her questionable "talent", but her voice and the dub arrangement and studio wizardry of the Jamaican musicians work wonders for the overall result. Fabulous!
