Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Blondie: Deborah Harry (vocals); Chris Stein (guitar, 12-string guitar, E-bow); Frank Infante (guitar); Jimmy Destri (keyboards); Nigel Harrison (bass); Clem Burke (drums).
  • Producer: Mike Chapman.
  • Reissue producer: Kevin Flaherty.
  • Recorded at The Record Plant, New York, New York in June & July, 1978. Originally released on Chrysalis (1192). Includes liner notes by Mike Chapman.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered using 24-bit technology.
  • Blondie: Chris Stein (guitar, 12-string guitar, E-bow).
  • Personnel: Debbie Harry (vocals); Frank Infante, Robert Fripp (guitar); Jimmy Destri (keyboards); Nigel Harrison (bass guitar); Clem Burke (drums).
  • Recording information: The Record Plant, New York, NY.
  • Authors: Chris Stein; Clem Burke; Debbie Harry.
  • Madonna and Michael Jackson aside, this is supreme pop music and as good as the genre can ever get. Everybody loved Blondie; fans, children, critics, other musicians and senior citizens - and not just because Debbie Harry was its frontperson. This is an unintentional greatest hits record that doesn't let up until the last note of 'Just Go Away' has died. If one wanted to carp, you could have asked for 'Denis' and 'Call Me' to have been included, but that would be just plain greedy. One of the greatest 'up' records of all time.
