    NO WAY!!! Paul — you told me that the original copy you had of this rarity was badly-damaged and that you were going to replace it. I had absolutely no idea that another copy, much less in near-mint condition, would be so easy to find. You must have great sources! Anyway, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Another donation’s headed your way. All the best, J.

    Thank you Jbird I managed to find a still sealed copy which was mint condition until I opened it then it became Near Mint (lol). Glad that you like it 🙂

    Always keen to hear an early Grace Jones single such as this. Thanks very much for posting it.


  6. jbirdp Says:

    How about “Feel Up” next? Please, please, please with sugar on it?



  7. Gina Says:

    This mix of That’s the trouble is incredible.

    Thanks Paul!
    I have her Compass Point Sessions 2 CD but the two songs are nowhere to be found there.

    I know this is released in 1976, but listening to it now again, it is really THE Sound of ’76! And you feel like you’re back in 1976 again!
    Do I make any sense here?
    Not to mean that it sounds aged, but more like a representative sound for that disco era.
    The lyrics of disco may often be of heartbreak or betrayal or even survival, but its music is always brimming with hope and joy!

    I love this single. Do you agree that both tracks have a country flavor to them? especially “That’s The Trouble”. Glad to see you again Ric.


    Jermajesty Reply:

    I thought the same sort of thing, though couldn’t put such a precise year on it. 🙂


    ric Reply:

    Yes, there’s indeed a country slant to That’s My Trouble.
    Sorry, however, brings to mind the themes to Charlie’s Angels and Loveboat! LOL!
    These also strike me as a purer and more “normal” Grace Jones, before she started going all nightclubby and fierce!

    This sort of music isn’t made anymore. Such a great production.

    Hello again Paul, I hope you got my email and my apologies if it was too long. I really appreciate the 12″ Mixes of Grace Jones on here. Is there any chance the 12″ of On Your Knees / Don’t Mess With The Messer will appear anytime soon?

    The original 12″ disc of ‘That’s The Trouble’ is a collector’s item – but it has to say BEAM JUNCTION
