Blondie
Autoamerican

  (Item #: blondautoa_1812_1907) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • DEMO DISC Triple Plus (A+++) sound on both sides of this poppy New Waver - The Tide Is High sounds amazing here
  • This one was doing it all -- cleaner, clearer, more full-bodied, more energy, and the list goes on
  • Mostly quiet vinyl throughout with one issue - we've dropped the price considerably
  • "... they continued to expand their stylistic range, with greater success, at least on certain tracks, than they had on Eat to the Beat."

Super Hot Stamper

Blondie
Eat To The Beat

  (Item #: blondeatto_1812_1903) 

Our Price: $74.99

  • Here's a superb early pressing of the band's followup to Parallel Lines with both sides earning outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades for their big, lively sound - pressed on exceptionally quiet vinyl too
  • Turn it up as loud as you want - the top end and vocals are balanced, smooth and tonally correct, not gritty or edgy
  • The drums and bass of Die Young Stay Pretty are as real sounding as if you were standing five feet from the band
  • 4 1/2 stars: "The British... made Eat to the Beat another chart-topper, with three major hits, including a number one ranking for Atomic and almost the same success for Dreaming."

Blondie - Eat To The Beat

Our Shootout Winner from 2018

  (Item #: blondeatto_2018) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock Hall of Fame and another in the long list of recordings that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

This is Mike Chapman's Big Beat Sonic Masterpiece -- yes, the sound is actually bigger and better than the sound on Parallel Lines -- akin to the debuts of The Knack and The Cars, and every bit as huge and punchy as either.

Eat to the Beat lives and dies by its energy, its bass and above all by its transient snap.

Blondie - Autoamerican

Our Shootout Winner from 2009

  (Item #: blondautoa_2009) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

DEMO DISC SOUND on this A+++ Hot Stamper Side One! This is one KILLER New Wave Pop Record. All the Blondie magic you could ever want is in these grooves! The truly POWERFUL sound of this Power Pop Band really comes through on this Bad Boy, or should we say Bad Girl? Whatever. This was the Hands Down Hot Stamper Winner of our latest shootout. Man, we had a ball with this one.

Blondie - Parallel Lines

Our Shootout Winner from 2016

  (Item #: blondparal_2016) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Can this kind of music get any better? This album is a MASTERPIECE of Pure Pop, ranking right up there with The Cars first album. I can't think of many albums from the era with the perfect blend of writing, production and musicianship Blondie achieved with Parallel Lines.

Blondie - Parallel Lines

Simply Vinyl & EMI 180 Debunked

  (Item #: blondparal_debunk_180) 



Sonic Grade: D

Both Hall of Shame Pressings

EMI and Simply Vinyl both released Heavy Vinyl versions of the album with little sonic success. I remember being underwhelmed by the Simply Vinyl version, the perfect example of the smeary sub-gen sound you get when a record is made from a dub tape. The EMI 180 was brighter and thinner and every bit as wrong in its own way. Choosing among them would have been difficult. The best choice: none of the above.

Blondie - Parallel Lines

MoFi Debunked

  (Item #: blondparal_debunk) 



Audiophile Versions of This Album Suck (The Life Right Out of the Music)

As previously noted, the MoFi, one of those Jack Hunt turgid muckfests (check out City to City #058 for the ulitimate in murky MOFI sound), is incapable of conveying anything resembling the kind of clear, radio-friendly pop rock sound that Chris Thomas and the band were aiming for. The recording has copious amounts of Analog Richness and Fullness to start with. Adding more is not an improvement; in fact it’s positively ruinous.
