While it’s taken a little bit to hit the scene, the new 30th Anniversary edition of seminal New York punk band Blondie’s crossover smash album Parallel Lines was released this summer. Containing smash hits like “Heart of Glass”, “Hanging on the Telephone” and “One Way or Another”, among others, this was the album that transformed Blondie from an underground fave to the top of the charts. Included in this rerelease are 4 brand new tracks, including remixes and French versions.
Blondie is an American rock band that first gained fame in the late 1970s and has so far sold over 60 million records. The band was a pioneer in the early American punk rock and new wave scenes. Its 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. Over the next three years, the band achieved several hit singles and was noted for its eclectic mix of musical styles incorporating elements of disco, pop and reggae, while retaining a basic style as a new-wave band.
