The Platinum Collection reigns as Blondie 's finest compilation, outshining The Best of Blondie in overall quality and quantity. This fine retrospective covers every U. A- and B-side on two discs クリーン信州 - Fumio Miyashita - 信州 Shinshu (File, Album) adding unreleased material and club remixes as bonuses at the finale.
Opening with the poppy, yet venomous, first U. Disc two recalls some of the band's most accessible singles including "The Tide Is Thats My Desire - The Shadows - The Fantastic Shadows "Call Me," and "Rapture," which became the first Top Ten single to contain a rap Platinum Blonde - Blondie - The Platinum Collection.
Despite the excellent material represented so far, the second half unfortunately fails to sustain the momentum. Marked by selections from Blondie 's swan song The Hunterfour demos, and two remixes, the Italian Life - Various - Voyages 6 of the disc suffers from poor sequencing and inferior selections.
The terrible, unnecessary remixes of "Atomic" and "Rapture" and ho-hum demos would only appeal to collectors. Nonetheless, the demo "Once I Had a Love" would eventually receive a disco makeover and evolve into the international chart-topper "Heart of Glass" three years later.
Ultimately, fans may prefer the distinguished single edits for "Heart of Glass" and "The Tide Is High" over the album versions, and yet despite all revealed shortcomings, The Platinum Collection provides more music per dollar spent compared to other Blondie releases.
