Blondie "Eat To The Beat"

Posted 01 Jul 2010 in 70s, Albums of 1979, Albums of the 70s, Rock + Roll

Today’s Cool Album of The Day (#81 in The Series) is Blondie, “Eat To The Beat.”

I wasn’t sure what to do today. Then I heard it was Debbie Harry’s 65 birthday. I looked at her solo album “Rockbird” since I’m a big fan of that release. But I decided to go with Blondie’s “Eat to The Beat.”

Why, well it has what may by my two favorite Blondie tracks, ‘Dreaming’ and ‘Union City Blue.’

“Eat to the Beat” was produced by Mike Chapman and reached #17 on the Billboard US chart.

Happy Birthday DH
