Editorial Reviews

Emerging from the mid-seventies New York punk rock movement, Blondie's mix of punk ethos, glorious melodies and the iconic figure of Debbie Harry took them to global superstardom. Filmed at the time of their reunion in 1999, this addition to the acclaimed VH1 series Behind The Music tells the story of Blondie from their origins in CBGB's, through their superstar years, their breakup in the mid eighties, Chris Stein's illness, solo careers and on to their current reformation. The story is illustrated by interviews with band members Debbie Harry, Chris Stein, Jimmy Destri and Clem Burke, plus Joey Ramone, John Waters and Terry Ellis of Chrysalis Records. It features clips of many of their hits taken from TV shows, live performances and original promo videos. As a bonus the full video for Maria has also been added to the program.

Track Listing: 1. X Offender 2. Little Girl Lies 3. Look Good in Blue 4. Man Overboard 5. In the Flesh 6. I'm on E 7. Love at the Pier 8. I Didn't Have the Nerve 9. Bermuda Triangle Blues (Flight 45) 10. Kidnapper 11. Youth Nabbed as Sniper

4.0 out of 5 stars Second time around July 6, 2006
Format:DVD
If your an avid Blondie fan and/or DVD collector, then chances are you already own this DVD.

This is the same performance from the Beat Club (AKA. Musik Laden) that was released several years ago with a different cover and title: "The Best of the Beat Club live: Blondie"

Not the their best performance on DVD but great if your looking into early Blondie in their pre-hits era.

This DVD contains a few visually enternaining numbers...the music is pretty good considering Blondie weren't considered the best band live but they play it up in this one.

Very dated at almost 30 years ago but the sound and picture is exellent. From January 1978 supportign their Plastic Letters album that came out the next month.

So if your looking to fill your collection get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blondie Live is for Real March 8, 2007
Format:DVD
This terrific live footage of Blondie shows the band playing a collection of songs from their first two albums, Blondie & Plastic Letters - it pre-dates their big success of Parallel Lines. Some punkers would say it shows the band at their peak. The production is raw but clean, and appears to be one long take, like what you would see if you saw them at a club. This is the ticket to see them that you might have missed back in '78! If you dig the NY punk scene, and/or small-stage rock'n roll performances in general, you will appreciate the performances Deborah Harry and the group provide in this video. It is a must-have for fans of Blondie. Not only that, it also gives a good view of a real band in it's early stages - my daughter and her friends who are into the garage band scene both as a musical genre (e.g., White Stripes, etc.), and to play for themselves, learned a lot about how a band can perform well and have presence on a small stage. Deborah Harry shows how it's done right. The performance is something like a Saturday Night Live performance from the old days. It is something completely different, and more real, than they see in videos on MTV and big-time rock productions (e.g., Rolling stones, Aerosmith, and other huge venue deals) - it's a performance that is not just good, but they can see themselves being able to try for themselves. Put this DVD on and set up for a party for any age group.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This! August 26, 2007
By Chuck
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is absolutely the best video of any group I have ever seen, period! I have lent this DVD to young bands just to inspire them! This is the one video which shows Blondie at it's absolute best, and will be immortilized forever! The Video and Audio quality is also unbelieveble for it's time. "It doesn't get any better than this"!

Do not bother to buy this DVD if you already have a DVD copy of Blondie's concert for German Radio Bremen MusikLaden Live. If you can find the original: "Blondie: the best of MusikLaden Live" 1999, EME America/Pioneer Artists. It is just a repackaging of the same concert available on several DVD releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars YouTube Did It February 12, 2009
Format:DVD
I saw a lot of concerts in my younger days - front row at Springsteen's 1st tour, Dire Straits' 1st U.S. tour, etc. - and many others - and now I wish I had seen this band.

YouTube did it for me; when I saw the energy and excellence of the great Deborah Harry I realized that my negative view of Blondie in 1978-1982 was my own stupid mistake.

Oh well, I am now a Blondie junkie and this DVD, which is a complete "set" of 11 of their early songs with all the transitions - IOW, they play straight thru - is the real deal. Yeah, I guess you could say that they went on to bigger and better things but if you like to study the craft of rock 'n roll you will not beat this IMO.

And fellas, I gotta tell you, your wife or girlfriend probably won't like this... It's the shirt I think ;^)

Rock on Bad Girl, Rock on!

Nigel Harrison is one of the guitar players in the video- not Gary Valentine. The print on the back of the DVD box is wrong.
