Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Grace Jones – Megamix (France 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 23rd, 2011



This 1990 ultra scarce Grace Jones Megamix was released only in France on Island Records as both a 7″ and 12″ promo single. Bothe the 7″ and 12″ include the 5:10 version of “Private Life” as the b-side. Instead of posting both singles seperately I have included the 7″ Version of the Megamix as a bonus track. The singles are both housed in a yellow and blue Island Records sleeve.

    I thot we’ve seen the last of her official megamix with that musclemix one…you’ve proven me wrong again!

    Hey Paul,
    I wonder if you’d be interested in a donation of a few Grace Jones 12” singles I recently acquired. I was going to try to rip and digitize them myself, but it was an epic fail with the equipment I have–And you do such an excellent job with all your rips, just thought I’d make the offer. The ones I have are ‘Love Is The Drug – Paul Smykle Remix’ ‘Cry Now, Laugh Later/Nipple To The Bottle – Dubs’ and a DMC compilation with the Sanny X remix of ‘La Vie En Rose’ –Please let me know if you’re interested.


  9. jbird Says:

    Hey Paul — We’d love to hear a clean copy of the “Feel Up” 12″ mix (never released on CD). Since you’re in a Grace Jones mood…Thanks much!


  10. Disco D Says:

    Thanks, Paul 🙂 I wonder who created this megamix?


  11. Jean-Michel Says:

    I Think maybe it’s Alan Couthlard done this megamix for DMC


  12. Disco D Says:

    HI Paul, can you check to see if these links are still working. It’s just timing out for me (on FLAC). Much appreciated, Thank you 🙂


  13. Disco D Says:

    Hi Paul. It’s working now. Must be the server. Fleetwood Mac Big Love FLAC is not working though. Could you possibly fix this, please? Thank you 🙂


  14. Disco D Says:

    Haha… Big Love is working now too. Sorry 🙂


  15. Joseph Says:

    The link isn’t working. 🙁


  16. DjPaulT Says:

    Links are working now!


  17. Junior Says:

    Thanks for this Grace treat!
