Well this never happened did it?

ACR and Grace Jones covering the Talking Heads song 'Houses In Motion'. From the article it sounds like they'd started recording it, so maybe there's a rough mix somewhere?

I'm told two tracks were laid down during this session, "Houses in Motion" & "And Then Again".

That looks like a composite photo to me.

@Big Block 454: I agree, it's a bit strange there's no shadow behind Grace Jones. BUT there are plenty of other (real) photos of GJ and ACR together; in the booklet accompanying ACR's "Early" compilation, for example.

I've heard it from the horse's mouth that they did 'Houses in Motion'. Also had an undergound label owner tell me recently that he's trying to put it out on a seven!
