Description

Offered for sale is a limited edition clear vinyl pressing of Parallel Lines by Blondie, issued in the Netherlands in 1978.

About this copy: This copy of Parallel Lines is a 1978 pressing on the Chrysalis label.

This record is the original version of the album that plays the short version of “Heart of Glass,” rather than the longer “disco version” that later became a hit.

The cover is VG+ with slight corner wear, a bend near the mouth and light foxing on the back cover.

The original lyric inner sleeve is included and it has no splits.

The clear vinyl record is M- and may be unplayed.

A beautiful copy of a terrific album and the first copy we’ve had for sale in several years.

Background:  Parallel Lines was Blondie’s third album, and the one that turned them into stars.  With the help of the hit “Heart of Glass”, Parallel Lines reached #6 on the U.S. album charts and was certified platinum by the RIAA.

Allmusic.com gave Parallel Lines a rare 5 star review:

Blondie turned to British pop producer Mike Chapman for their third album, on which they abandoned any pretensions to new wave legitimacy (just in time, given the decline of the new wave) and emerged as a pure pop band. …The result is state-of-the-art pop/rock circa 1978, with Harry’s tough-girl glamour setting the pattern that would be exploited over the next decade by a host of successors led by Madonna.

In the late 1970s, record companies around the world discovered that collectors were interested in colored vinyl records (and would gladly pay a premium price for them), so they issued a number of then-new and older titles as limited editions on colored vinyl.

A number of these titles were issued in the Netherlands, where colored vinyl albums by David Bowie, the Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, the Alan Parsons Project, Blondie, and others were released.
