Blondie's songs and sultry swagger hit the tipping point in '78 and they leapt from hip new-wave band to full-fledged pop stars. Along with their all-time classics Heart of Glass and One Way or Another and the rest of the LP, this set includes a booklet with the album's photo session and a DVD with Heart of Glass; Picture This, and Hanging on the Telephone promo videos plus Sunday Girl from Top of the Pops !
Until 1978, Blondie was perceived mostly as a '60s-referencing, British-Invasion-meets-girl-groups band. With veteran producer Mike Chapman at the helm for their third album, though, everything changed for this group bred from the New York punk scene. Honing in on Blondie's strongest points--Deborah Harry's come-hither vocals and Clem Burke's powerhouse drumming--Chapman helped recast the band to the power pop side of new wave, and with impressive results. Driven by the punk-meets-disco chart-topping hit, "Heart of Glass," and the herky-jerky "One Way or Another," as well as a muscular cover of the Nerves' "Hanging on the Telephone," Parallel Lines established Blondie as major stars. --Billy Altman

Blondie - top artists list [#618]


Blondie is an American rock band, founded by singer Deborah Harry and guitarist Chris Stein.

The band was a pioneer in the early American New Wave and punk scenes of the mid-1970s.

Their first two albums contained strong elements of these genres, and although successful in the United Kingdom and Australia, Blondie was regarded as an underground band in the United States until the release of Parallel Lines in 1978. []
