Zenyatta Mondatta is the third album by The Police, released in 1980. It features the two mega hit singles: "Don't Stand So Close to Me" and "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da". It was their third and final album to bear a Foreign language title. The album won The Police two Grammy Awards including Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "Don't Stand So Close to Me" and The Police's second consecutive win for Best Rock Instrumental Performance for "Behind My Camel". The album was well received.

The album is the last of the Police's early era, influenced by reggae and punk and featuring few musical elements on top of the core guitar, bass, and drums. The record has two instrumentals, "The Other Way of Stopping" and the Grammy-winning "Behind My Camel" (a third song, "Voices Inside My Head", is instrumental except for the words "Voices inside my head/Echoes of things that you said", which are repeated three times in the middle of the song). "Behind My Camel" was guitarist Andy Summers' first entirely self-penned composition. As with many of Summers and Copeland's compositions, Sting refused to play on it, an act of protest which usually resulted in the song in question being scrapped. Convinced of the song's quality, however, Summers recorded the bass line himself, overdubbing the guitar parts. The song would go on to win the 1982 Grammy for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.

"Zenyatta Mondatta remains one of the finest rock albums of all time." -Greg Prato, allmusic.com

SHM-SACD (Super High Material SACD) is the ultimate Super Audio CD that utilizes the materials and technologies that were developed for the SHM-CD to further enhance the audio-resolution. These discs are made with polycarbonate developed for the screen of the liquid crystal display. As it has a higher transparency, players can read the signal more faithfully. Also, it excels in fluidity, which enables you to cast a more accurate pit. What works wonders for a low resolution format such as CD should offer even greater sonic improvements in a real high resolution format such as SACD.

Housed in a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1/2" hinged-lid box which includes inside a full color mini insert LP sleeve and booklet with Japanese/English lyrics. The obi surrounding the album replicates the one included in the Japanese first pressing LP.

Features:
• Super High Material Super Audio CD
• SHM-SACD Stereo SACD Layer
• Single-Layer Stereo SHM-SACD, to secure enough reflectance and not to compress DSD file.
• Label of the disc is printed with a special green ink called 'Onsho Shiyou,' which minimizes diffuse reflection.
• Carefully selected master audio is used, from existing DSD files to newly converted from analog tapes.
• This Single-Layer SHM-SACD can only be played on a Super Audio CD Player! It will NOT play on conventional CD Players!

Selections:
1. Don't Stand So Close To Me
2. Driven To Tears
3. When The World Is Running Down, You Make The Best Of What's Still Around
4. Canary In A Coalmine
5. Voices Inside My Head
6. Bombs Away
7. De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da
8. Behind My Camel
9. Man In A Suitcase
10. Shadows In The Rain
11. The One Way Of Stopping
