Biography

The cover of Blondie’s Panic Of Girls, the band’s ninth studio album, features the surreal hand-painted imagery of Dutch cult artist Chris Berens, whom guitarist Chris Stein sought out and commissioned to create the work. Its depiction of a kind of warped wonderland metaphorically suits Blondie at this juncture in its remarkable, 37 year-old career. The New York City-based sextet ...

Editorial Reviews

This is the one that started it all. Blondie's self-titled debut (originally on the independent Private Stock label) laid the foundation of the pop bridge that would lead from punk to new wave. It wasn't a major hit upon its initial 1976 release, however the years have been kind and the now classic 11 original tracks including X Offender; Rip Her to Shreds , and Look Good in Blue have been remastered and are joined by five bonus cuts, two of them being the rare Private Stock single versions of X Offender and In the Sun !

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick-Ass Debut From BLONDIE! November 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Mix together some punk, rock and roll, bluegrass, 50's girl group, a surf board, a sci-fi drive-in movie and funnel them through the sexiest little cartoon blonde bombshell you've ever seen and you've got the album titled simply BLONDIE! Straight from their CBGB's punk haydays, BLONDIE shoots 11 bullets at the "Rifle Range" dead-on. Debbie Harry spurts out smart sassy extremely clever lyrics as her delivery goes from sweet and tender to tough and terrorizing without batting a heavy-lidded eye. When you've got that kind of style, that kind of performance, backed up by a tight band and catchy addictive rhythms - you've got one ass-kicking LP! I won't even try to pinpoint highlights because every track is great and the CD also includes rare demos as extras. There is only one Debbie Harry, only one BLONDIE and they started off their long music career with a raw linear-induction rocket that has catapulted them to a decades long career as one of the most admired rock bands in the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Platinum Blondie! September 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Oh, this record is absolutely marvellous! Yes, even better than "Parallel Lines" - their usually most celebrated album. Nonetheless, I like "Blondie" better, because the songs aren't as over-familiar as those on "P.L.".
The only beef I have with this reissue is the inclusion of below par extra tracks a la "Platinum Blonde" and "The Thin Line" --- not prima Blondie material that. The cover of the Shangri-Las "Out in the Street" is OK, although they bettered that one on "No Exit".
From the original album I only ever disliked the very silly closing "The Attack of the Giant Ants". The almost-equally-stupidly-titled yet finger-snapping "A Shark in Jets Clothing" is one of the best cuts here/there, though, and deserves a belated and celebrated recognition (retro movie music supervisors out there take note!)
"X Offender", "In the Flesh", "Kung Fu Girls", "In the Sun", "Rifle Range", and ALL the (at least) first 10 songs on this CD are amongst some of the (still) freshest and best pure pop music recorded (as Homer Simpson would say) during those turbulent times that were the 1970's.
Stay in the sun and don't fall overboard --- buy this CD today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably, Blondie's Best November 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album sounds like 1966--that blissful year in which so many eclectic sounds, from Motown to Go-Go Beat and British Invasion, to early Mod and pre Psychadelic, co-existed on the airwaves. "X Offender", "Little Girl Lies" and "in The Flesh", which open the album, all sound like Phil Spectorish girl-group recordings, albeit with spicier lyrics. On "Look Good In Blue" the band has the good humor to perform a rock song with a tango beat in dead earnest, as well as the memorable line "I could give you some head....and shoulders to lie on". "In The Sun" in my opinion is the most exhilerating Blondie song ever; the simple melodic hook is breathtakingly catchy, and the instrument playing the main riff sounds like something between a foghorn and a vacuum cleaner! (It is probably a synthesizer). Whatever it is, it is emblematic of the inspired innovation apparent throughout this album. "A Shark In Jets Clothing" is Blondie's homage to "West Side Story", and that closes Side 1 (or it did in the days of vinyl anyway).

Side 2 begins with the Latin-flavored "Man Overboard" which again revisits the girl group sound, and boasts background vocals by legendary 60's songstress Ellie Greenwhich herself. Beautiful keyboard solo by Jimmy Destri has a Doors-y feel. Then, "Rip Her To Shreds" reminds the listener that the Blondie of this album was initially a "punk" band from the CBGBs circuit. But unlike most punk rock, the song's aggressiveness is mostly satire--a comic book treatment of viciousness and female backbiting. Debbie is at her vampy best in the spoken parts "Hey! Pss Pss! Here she comes now!....Bye Bye Sugar! And not a minute too soon!" And the arrangement is perfect. "Rifle Range" follows, again with a slightly Doors-y feel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Begging To Be Rediscovered July 1, 2010
By Kasey G
Format:Audio CD
It took me 30 years to discover that Blondie's self-titled debut album from 1976, along with it's follow-up "Plastic Letters" are arguably as good as their critically-acclaimed "Parallel Lines" which sold 20 million copies.

Thankfully, I took another Amazon reviewer's recommendations seriously and picked both these CDs up and instantly fell in love with them.

Blondie's first album is an amazing mix of '60s girl group pop, new wave, and rock and sounds nothing like what was being played on Top-40 radio in 1976. The material has a built-in retro kitsch factor that doesn't really date it.

Tongue-in-cheek lyrics prove that Blondie, (like another of my favorite bands, The B-52's) never took themselves too seriously and were always in on the joke.

"X-Offender" (the record company was scared of the original title "Sex Offender") is a great opener and has Debbie assuming the role of a hooker being attracted to her arresting police officer. The spoken intro is quite reminiscent of The Angels' "My Boyfriend's Back" with Clem Burke's drumming subsituting for handclaps. Prominent organ and tambourine make this track sound very much like it was recorded for a 1966-67 period piece film.

The girl-group sound continues in the uptempo "Little Girl Lies" (in which handclaps DO make an effective appearance), then in the slow number "In the Flesh".

"Look Good in Blue" has Debbie singing "I could give you some head and shoulders to lie on" and features memorable piano and synth backup.

Debbie shouts "Surf's up!" to open "In the Sun", which could have been at home on any beach-party movie soundtrack (if it had been directed by John Waters maybe). Clem Burke's drumming makes this track one of the better offerings.

There's nothing I can add to the compendium of professional opinion on Blondie, so I'll just say that if you don't know what I mean by that then you should buy and listen, often.
