Muze PNote Most devoted Blondie fans will already have the majority of the songs included on the first disc of this double-disc set. Alongside the band's biggest hits--"Heart of Glass," "Tide is High," "Call Me," and "Rapture"--GREATEST HITS also includes favorites like "One Way or Another" and "Sunday Girl" and lesser-known gems like "Picture This" and "Union City Blue."
Muze PNote But the real benefit of this package comes with disc number two, which features 15 videos of the band in its prime. For fans who never got to see Blondie back in the day, the "vision" portion of this SOUND & VISION set is invaluable, lending a filmic dimension to the band's glamorous blend of punk, new wave, disco, and irresistible pop.

Artist Overview

Although the press and public were initially focused on singer Debbie Harry's model-like good looks, Blondie was one of the first new wave bands of the 1970s to experiment with other musical styles. Beginning as part of the '70s CBGB scene in New York, the band experienced massive commercial success when they merged their '60s girl-group-influenced punky pop with disco, reggae, and rap. After the group disbanded in the early '80s, Harry went on to a solo career and acted in numerous films. Blondie had a successful reunion in the late '90s, touring and releasing an album of new material that showed they were far from done.
