EDITORS’ NOTES

Between 1976 and 1980, Blondie released a peerless string of singles that reshaped the pop mainstream with underground attitude. Debbie Harry’s sneering taunts on “Rip Her to Shreds” betray the group's punk past, but the starry-eyed “Dreaming” summoned the dawn of New Wave, while the synth-powered knockout “Heart of Glass” and the rap-infused funk of “Rapture” saw them bravely saunter into the discotheque. And their joyous cover of reggae standard “The Tide Is High” reinforced just how far Blondie had ventured from their CBGB roots.

Right before Blondie Greatest Hits Redux (2014 with Ghosts of Download) was released iTunes removed all original Blondie Best Of/Greatest Hits albums in order to give the forthcuming newly rerecorded album preferential treatment. Here is the original 1981 multi-platinum labum in all its Blondie goodness. Perfect tracks from a perfect Band.
