Biography

The feisty ambition of ex-Playboy Bunny Deborah Harry and her mop topped male colleagues has paid off. A quarter of a century after their debut, Blondie are rightly acclaimed as one of the most influential bands of their generation. They also became the most commercially successful act of the entire Punk and New Wave scene. Though it didn’t exactly happen overnight.

I grew up listening to Blondie and to find this album on CD, thus replacing my old vinyl copy, was a real treat. Each track on here is a gift in its own right. From disco-driven "Heart of Glass" to heart-thumping "Union City Blues", sneering (yet insecure) "Rip Her To Shreds" and timeless, erotic "Atomic" this Best Of ... album is a masterpiece. It is much better than the later released "Atomic - Best of Blondie" because it has the full versions of "The Tide is High", "Rapture" and "Atomic" and dispenses with the pointless 3 remixes of the latter track.
You will not need to use the "skip" button on your CD player when playing this timeless album.

When I was young, I loved Blondie but never owned any Blondie records. This CD contains all the classics I remember from years ago along with some great songs I was unfamiliar with. I'm no Blondie expert, so I can't comment on what should and should not have been included in a greatest hits CD. All I know is that each of these songs works quite well for me. The whole album has a terrific flow to it, alternating between several different styles of music--new wave, punk, disco, reggae, rap, you name it. Blondie was a trailblazer who redeemed the music of the 70s and paved the way for the great music of the 80s, 90s, present, and future. The variety and freshness of Blondie's musical stylings ensure the group's longevity and influence indefinitely.
"The Tide is High" has a reggae-type sound and evokes a real "island" feel; this song actually ranks as my favorite song on the CD. Of course, "Heart of Glass," "Rapture," "One Way or Another," and "Call Me" are terrific songs I never forgot over the years. "Rapture" actually introduced rap music to my ears--that ending rap was like nothing I had ever heard before; everyone I knew loved that bit about the man from Mars and the great guitar riffs at the end. The "Rapture" video is also one of the very first videos I ever remember seeing. "Hanging on the Telephone" has a driving rhythm that makes it impossible for you to sit still as you listen. "Sunday Girl" is a fast-paced, fun song with a strong beat and great vocals (including the French verse), as is "Dreaming." "(I'm Always Touched By Your) Presence Dear" is another surprisingly good gem, featuring a slightly softer side of Blondie. I basically love every single song on this album; Blondie's music has not lost a bit of originality, brashness, or power over the years, nor has the enjoyment I receive from listening to it diminished one single bit.

The Best of Blondie (released in the mid-80s) is still the finest Blondie compilation currently on the market (although now tricky to get hold of)and is certainly better than the tacky Atomic Blondie collection released in the late-90s. All Blondie's classics are present and correct in their original form, including Heart Of Glass, Hanging On The Telephone, Sunday Girl and the brilliantly innovative Rapture, surely their finest moment, which features the first ever rap by a female artist.
It sensibly sticks to their best songs whilst avoiding any filler-fodder or annoying remixes and the track order, while not chronological, is a fluid and well-blended balance of their material.
Perhaps an up to date and chronologically correct collection inclusive of their 1999 No.1 Maria and Island Of Lost Souls (their last interesting single prior to this), free of needless remixes, would be a worthy testimonial to one of the greatest and most prolific bands of the New Wave era. Until this appears, your best bet is this excellent compilation.

Debbie Harry whether you like it or not is what makes Blondie Tick, shame because the boys in the band do an excellent job but none of us punters can ever seem to remember their names.
Fact of life that and often the way, when ever I mention Mick Ronson to anyone rarely do they even know who he was but without him David Bowie and Lour Reed could have sank without a trace.
Meanwhile this is a must have album that documents and era well worth remembering.
We Men all fell in love with Debbie Harry but she never married any of us, perhaps she is much wiser than anyone knew?

I bought this album on vinyl when it came out, and it was one of my favourites throughout my early teenage years. Unlike many "greatest hits" packages, it hangs together as an album; it doesn't feel like just a load of singles.
In my opinion it's still the defnitive Blondie "best of". There are plenty of others on the market, some with many more tracks, but The Best of Blondie is the perfect overview of what the band was about. It came out before their final album, but none of those tracks is essential.
If you only own one album by Blondie, make it this one.

If the number of times I listen to it each year means anything, "The Best of Blondie" is the best greatest hits CD in my collection. Yes, the New Wave classics like "Dreaming," "Hanging on the Telephone," "One Way Or Another" and "Call Me" are here, but like with most artists the songs I really seem to enjoy are those great songs that never got a lot of air play, like "Atomic," "Sunday Girl" and my personal favorite, "(I'm Always Touched By Your) Presence Dear." Yes, it would be nice to have a bit more representation from the punk stage of vocalist Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein (e.g., "I'm Not Living in the Real World"), but you do get the proto-rap hit "Rapture." What else can I say, except that pretty much everybody I know has this CD and loves it.
