Portfolio is the debut studio album by Grace Jones, released in 1977 by Island Records. It spawned her first big hit, "La Vie en rose". Having enjoyed a successful modelling career in Paris and New York in the early 1970s, Jones released a series of singles throughout 1975–1976. None of them, however, managed to succeed in mainstream charts. Jones secured a record deal with Island Records in 1977 and found wider recognition only with her debut Island album, Portfolio.

Grace Jones' debut album is a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the disco recordings sound formulaic and lack the unique quality for which she would become renowned. Saying that, it's all purely dependent on what era of Ms Jones you prefer. For me, the highlights of her music career were her trilogy of masterpieces she cut with reggae wizards Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespere. If, however, you love her disco period, then you'll probably love this album.

Portfolio is the debut album by Jamaican singer Grace Jones, released on September 6, 1977. It is the first of three disco albums produced by Tom Moulton. I Need A Man was released as Jones' debut single in 1975. It was re-mastered for the album in 1977 and later became a dance hit in the US. The biggest hit from the album, a cover of Édith Piaf’s La vie en rose, was released in 1977 as her first single for Island Records and the last from Portfolio.

The results are quite different: though polished, these tracks don't jump out at you. It's really a producer's album. Moulton probably had these tracks completed long before he knew who was going to sing them.
