AllMusic Review by

The contents of Star-Club Präsentiert Grace Jones, released in Germany through Universal, are the same as the more widely distributed Classic Grace Jones, issued the same year. It contains most of Jones' highlights through 1982's Living My Life. Since it doesn't include 1985's "Slave to the Rhythm" or the 1977 number one club single "I Need a Man," it is not definitive, but it's a handy overview of her earlier work, containing lots of classic material -- "My Jamaican Guy," "Nipple to the Bottle," and "Pull Up to the Bumper," along with inspired covers of the Pretenders' "Private Life," Roxy Music's "Love Is the Drug," and the Normal's "Warm Leatherette" -- recorded at Compass Point in the Bahamas with the studio's all-star backing cast, anchored by Sly & Robbie. Only "La Vie en Rose" dates from her '70s releases.
