20th Century Masters – The Millennium Collection: The Best of Grace Jones is a compilation album by Grace Jones, released by Island Records in 2003.

Background[edit]

This compilation was released as a part of the 20th Century Masters series. It focused on Jones' early 1980s Compass Point era, therefore including mostly Chris Blackwell and Alex Sadkin-produced material, plus "La Vie en rose" as the only representative of the disco era, produced by Tom Moulton. The Best of Grace Jones notably omits Jones' biggest hit, "Slave to the Rhythm", and ignores her post-Island output. The album front artwork uses the picture from "My Jamaican Guy" single cover, while the back cover features a snapshot from "I've Seen That Face Before (Libertango)" music video. Only two months after this album's release, another compilation appeared on the market, The Universal Masters Collection.
