The album "Koo Koo" is Debbie's "disco" album, a collaboration with Nile Rogers of Chic, and was not popular with die-hard Blondie fans when originally released as her first solo album, though I quite liked it personally. By the time "Def, Dumb & Blonde" was released, Debbie's solo work had matured into a sound not dissimilar from Blondie, and this set is worth buying for that album alone, which includes the excellent single "I want that man".

I had the album Koo Koo on audio tape since it came out in 1980. I enjoyed the songs and wanted to get the album on CD for many years and couldnt get it until i found it recently on Amazon. I also enjoyed the album Def, Dumb and BLond that comes with it

Blondie's works come in peaks and troughs...
They claimed to be (and sometimes were acclaimed as) a punk band
which they never were...
The truth of the pudding is they just tried anything -erratically most of the time-
sometimes it sold sometimes it didn't.
They did yield some pleasant stuff at times
(parallel lines is a Blondie classic and eat to the beat can be pleasant in parts)
yet for me they remain inconsistently poor.
Even Blondie compilations (dozenfolds) can really manage to show them to their best effect.
My best advice is do like me make your own.
This two-set is hardly better in its remastered version
and really has a couple of good songs...
