About this album

“Fame” is the second studio album by Grace Jones. It was released on July 14, 1978. Just like on her debut album, Portfolio, side A is a continuous Tom Moulton-disco medley, with a total running time of 18:47. As Portfolio opened with “La Vie en rose”, side B on “Fame” also opens with a French language cover, Jacques Prévert’s “Autumn Leaves (Les Feuilles Mortes)”.

The Canadian edition of the original vinyl album included another French language track, “Comme Un Oiseau Qui S’envole”, which, in most other territories, was issued as the B-side of the single “Do or Die”. In Italy, the song “Anema E Core” was included on the album.

The album was a hit on the American dance scene, rocketing into the top 10 on the dance charts. The “Do or Die”/”Pride”/”Fame” side reached #3 on the U.S. Billboard dance club play chart.

Gold Legion, a record company that specializes in reissuing classic disco albums on CD, re-released it on the format in November 2011, remastered and with no bonus tracks.

    I finally purchased and received a copy of the "Fame" album on Amazon.com for a little under $20.00. It is a fabulous album!

    You know what's weird, is that I can get this album on vinyl for under $10 (which i did), but to get it on CD you have to dish out $150 for a used copy and almost $500 for a new copy. I didn't know this was such a rarity.

    I remember this album from my college days and really wanted it - especially the excellent cover of Autumn Leaves. I cannot believe I cannot get hold of it!
