Great work from Grace Jones - still riding high on a disco wave here, but also finding her own space and sound too! The mighty Tom Moulton produced, ensuring some great sound for the set - and arrangements are by Thor Baldursson and John Davis, both of whom bring in nice sense of fullness, but never smother Grace too much - a key factor, given that her vocal approach is often a bit more restrained than some of the other disco divas of the time. There's less covers here than before, and Grace herself even penned some of the tunes. First time CD reissue contains 12 page booklet with liner notes written by Christian John Wikane

GoldLegion did an excellent job of reissuing Muse on CD. Side 1 is a medley and just like it was on the original vinyl flows from one track tot he next with no breaks whatsoever. Sound quality is excellent, especially considering the original masters are analog from the late 70's.
Thank you for finally bringing this classic to CD! It's back in my collection as one of my favorites!
