    Blondie - named for the catcalls truck drivers made to lead singer Debra Harry - were pioneers of the new wave scene in the US, and were noted for their eclectic mix of musical styles, incorporating elements of disco, pop, reggae, and early rap music to their pop/punk sensibilities. The band used these stylings to catapult their way to several top hits and major record sales. The band was incredibly prolific through their initial eight years before disbanding. This collection features most of their classic songs, and is incredibly well mastered. The pressing is full of punch and the instrumentation is well separated across the soundscape. My only minor complaint is that the vocals may be pushed a little hot as there is some distortion, but otherwise, this is a warm, lively pressing that is very listenable and enjoyable.

      Go for the European version which has Union City Blue and Picture This m. Super essential compilation of their prime. Probably only track I feel they left out was X Offender. No brainer if you find a copy.

        Should be released on DVD as the VHS was back then.
        Clueless!

          it seems like this should be in the compilation category?

            Great memories from the 80's listening to this with headphones.

              So which is the semi-official - side one, or side two?
              And as for foot tapping - what tempo is it for 'In The Flesh'?
              Best answer can have for free the 100% official LP (just pay for the postage).

              ps. The issue with the poster + stickered sleeve should be a separate discogs
              entity / entry from the issue that retailed without. Yes.. but..
