#RSD14 Preview / Grace Jones: “Me! I Disconnect From You” / twelve-inch

front

Universal Music release a previously unreleased track from their forthcoming Grace Jones Nightclubbing reissue for Record Store Day 2014.

Me! I Disconnect From You is a cover of the opening track on the 1979 Tubeway Army album Replicas. It is one of two unreleased songs on CD 2 of the deluxe edition, the other being If You Wanna Be My Lover. Both tracks along with all the other bonus material are also available on the hi-res blu-ray audio edition of Nightclubbing.

Me! I Disconnect From You plays at 33RPM and sounds pretty much as you would expect it to (although Jones’ vocal is low-ish in the mix).  The track was produced by Chris Blackwell and Alex Sadkin. The B-side is the extended version of Feel Up which is also on the forthcoming Nightclubbing deluxe. This twelve inch record was mastered and cut at Abbey Road Studios and is pressed on very thick vinyl with some stylish design/typography for the labels. It also comes with a decent anti-static sleeve and a promo sheet for the new reissue, which if you’ve gone to the effort to see out this RSD release, you have probably already pre-ordered anyway!

Me! I Disconnect From You is available on twelve-inch vinyl ONLY on 19 April 2014 at independent record stores as part of Record Store Day. The reissue of Nightclubbing is released on 29 April 2014. Full track listing and details here.

  1. This, along with Dirk Wears White Sox on white vinyl and AoN’s 12″ are top of my RSD shopping list :-)

      Can we please keep all withering, sarcastic, or “ironic” comments directed towards music reissues, rather than other people leaving comments? :) thanks, Paul (Editor).

    The back of the sleeve seems to suggest that both tracks are Numan songs, whereas of course ‘Feel Up’ was written by Gracie herself :-)

    The back sleeve also credits both tracks as being mixed by Danny Tenaglia. While he did in fact do a remix for “Feel Up” in 1994, it’s very unlikely that he had anything to do with the mix of “Me! I Disconnect From You” back in ’81.

    Yay! Just got my copy (in a record store all the way over here in new Zealand)!
