4LP Blondie Box Set Featuring Outtakes & Rarities!
Remastered from the Original Analog Tapes!
Cut at Abbey Road Studios!
The First Band-Authorized Rarities Collection in Blondie's History!

2023 Grammy Award Nominee:
• Best Historical Album: Against The Odds: 1974-1982

TAS Rated 5/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics in the January 2023 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

From the first-ever authorized and in-depth archive in Blondie's history, this 4LP black vinyl set features the very best of the outtakes and rarities from the Super Deluxe Collectors Edition, remastered from the original analog tapes and cut at Abbey Road Studios. Included is a 112-page book featuring an exhaustive look at Blondie's international notoriety via picture sleeves and regional pressings.

What I particularly like about the Against the Odds collection is that it gives a previously unavailable opportunity to trace the evolution of Blondie's unique sound, which incorporated influences from early 60s music, pop, funk, and reggae to (later) rap, disco, and new wave, and the collection also follows the path of their songs from their rough home versions to polished best-selling products. Personally, I always enjoy observing work in progress, and my favorites in this set are all previously unreleased demo versions. These are ideas in statu nascendi, and one can connect with 'X Offender,' 'Mr. Sightseer,' 'Sunday Girl,' or 'Call Me' on a more personal level, before any of these became the best-selling hits... I highly recommend picking the Against the Odds set up and enjoying the journey 'in the flesh.'
