Grace Jones' iconic Nightclubbing gets deluxe reissue including 12" mixes and unreleased tracks

The Studio 54 icon sees her classic album remastered and expanded for the first time.

Island Records has announced a bumper reissue package for Grace Jones’ 1981 LP Nightclubbing, which has been remastered from the original analogue tapes and expanded with a raft of bonus 12″ mixes and B-sides.

The expanded versions also include two freshly unearthed tracks from the original sessions, including a cover of Tubeway Army’s ‘Me! I Disconnect From You’, while the double LP comes in a gatefold package with the original album paired with a selection of 12″ mixes.

Fans should also look out for a special 12” for Record Store Day 2014 featuring the Tubeway Army cover plus ‘Feel Up’ (Long Version). Wade through the tracklists of the deluxe versions below.

The 65-year-old Jones is currently writing her memoirs after agreeing a deal with Gallery Books last year.
