Private Life: The Compass Point Sessions is a two disc anthology released by Island Records in 1998.

Grace Jones recorded three albums with Sly & Robbie during the period of 1980-1982. Private Life: The Compass Point Sessions contains long and extended version of her hits, although the CD booklet claims that these haven't been issued before, most of them have in fact appeared on numerous CD re-issues around the world. Other tracks were very obviously remixed or re-edited by the PolyGram/Universal Music engineers in 1998 for this particular compilation - this instead of using the many existing long or extended versions by original producers Chris Blackwell and Alex Sadkin that were mixed and released on vinyl in 1980-1982. Also the track "Living My Life" appears as an edited remix by Paul "Groucho" Smykle - dating from 1987, which the liner notes fail to mention. To make matters worse and for one reason or another (read: sales) "Slave To The Rhytm" concludes the "Compass Point Sessions" album while the track actually, and to most Grace Jones fans' knowledge, was recorded in 1985, in London and with British producer Trevor Horn. Also the mix used, here renamed "Hot Blooded Version", is again an alternate 1998 re-mix/re-edit of the original 12" version entitled "Blooded".

On the other hand, this compilation does offer two previously unreleased songs from the "Living My Life" sessions: Man Around The House and a demo recording of Johnny Cash's classic Ring of Fire.

Hello, the first part is still dead. I am aware that you are on vacation right now. When you get back, and when you have time, would you repost the first part?
I would love that.
And your site is really great, thank you for everything!

Hello, I just wanted to ask wether you would come back to repair some of the broken links? I saw you are back from your vacation, since new entries are coming up.

I have the second half of this interesting album, but it is not complete without the first half!
Thanks so much!
