White Hot Stamper

Blondie
Parallel Lines

  (Item #: blondparal_2003) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • With a Triple Plus (A+++) Shootout Winning side one and a Double Plus (A++) side two, this copy had some of the best sound we have ever heard for Parallel Lines
  • The energy and enthusiasm of the band on this Retro Power Pop Classic really comes through here, and that's not a claim you can make about very many copies
  • There's not a bad song to be found anywhere, and lots of great ones: One Way Or Another, Heart Of Glass, Hanging On The Telephone, etc.
  • 5 stars on Allmusic: "Blondie's best album," which is actually a bit of an understatement - it's by far their best album

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.

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.

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.
