Product Overview

The Police will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their recording debut with their first double-disc CD 'Best of' collection entitled, The Police, to be released June 5, 2007. The 28 songs bring together the biggest hits from the band's five original studio albums and includes their very first single, 1977's Fall Out.

From that rarity to one of the most-remembered and most performed rock ballads of the '80s, 1983's Every Breath You Take, The Police spans the group's six-year journey from sweaty clubs to sold-out stadiums - establishing them as one of the definitive and most popular rock groups in the world.

Now, 30 years after the group's first recording - and as the band announced opening the Grammys - "We are The Police, and we are back!"

Released to coincide with the Police's long-awaited 2007 reunion tour, this self-titled two-disc anthology neatly chronicles the band's progression from faux punks to New Wave avatars to pop superstars. Reconfiguring the notion of the power trio by playing less instead of more, the Police hid their technical prowess at first, clothing their pop smarts in simple, punky riffs on "Fall Out" and "Next to You." At the same time, they were pioneering the fusion of rock and reggae with such tracks as "I Can't Stand Losing You" and the mega-hit "Roxanne."
As the collection moves along, we hear the band opening up their approach to allow in horns, keyboards, and a sophisticated pop sensibility. The Police of the smoothly textured "Wrapped Around Your Finger" are nearly unrecognizable as the same band that came raging out of the gate on "Truth Hits Everybody." This capable distillation of the Police oeuvre is a testament to their legacy-- a distinctive style that, as popular as they were, few even attempted to imitate.
