No. 50 – Slave to the Rhythm

Prog 836’s Bad Company cover by Brett Ewins (1955–2015) v Jamaican-born Grace [Beverly] Jones’ OJ[1] 1985 album Slave to the Rhythm, designed by Jean-Paul Goude, Jones’ partner at that time

Her seventh studio album – considered a concept album by Jones and subtitled a biography in the liner notes – Slave to the Rhythm contains her biggest hit to date; the song itself and the album were written by Bruce Woolley, Simon Darlow, Stephen Lipson and Trevor Horn CBE[2] and produced by Horn.

Sounds like a stretch, if you’ll pardon the pun, but this is a real homage, the source of which is 2000 AD editor (progs 873914 (1994)) and writer Alan McKenzie’s blog.

Notes:

  1. Order of Jamaica
  2. British order of chivalry: Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire
