Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Blondie - Rated 401/500!

The first-ever authorized and in-depth archive in Blondie's history, a rarity for a band almost 50 years into their career with 40 million records sold. Featuring 124 songs - including 36 previously unreleased - Blondie Against the Odds: 1974-1982 features tracks remastered from the original analog tapes and cut at Abbey Road Studios. Includes their first six albums, expanded to include over four dozen demos, alternate versions + outtakes, a 120-page discography book & 144-page hardback book.

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.'
