Blondie the jpoc Discography
Let's face it, Blondie were not around for that long and they did not record enough albums to satisfy the greed of the record companies. Because of this, the record companies have released a plethora of compilation albums, remix collections, compilations of remixes and remixes of the compilations.

That's fair enough. As any record company exec will tell you, a cocaine habit gets expensive when you approach middle age and find yourself having to score off the kind of dealer who drives an Audi and discretely accepts your corporate Amex. The suits have to make a living and that is how they do it.

That means that if you do a search for Blondie on one of the sites that sells CDs, you will discover three zillion items most of which are unavailable or of no real interest. (Who really wants the Tellytubbies remix of "Heart of Glass"? I don't but I bet that somebody is working on it right now.)

To help cut through the crap, here is my annotated discography of what is actually available. I'll try to keep on top of this by adding new stuff like the remastered CDs with bonus tracks as they come out.
