Blondie – Greatest Hits

Greatest Hits is a compilation album of recordings by the band Blondie released by EMI/Capitol Records in 2002. Following the re-issue of the six original Chrysalis studio albums in 2001, this was the first Blondie “Best of” compilation to be digitally remastered and also to include their comeback hit “Maria”, a UK #1 in February 1999. Greatest Hits also contains the four ‘special mixes’ by producer Mike Chapman that appeared on the band’s very first hits compilation, 1981′s The Best of Blondie.

The album charted at Number 38 on the UK’s Top 75 Album Chart and charted for 4 weeks. In New Zealand the album reached number 15 and charted for 8 weeks.

The album was accompanied by a DVD release, The Greatest Video Hits, which included the original 1981 Best of Blondie video album. The 2002 version added the videos for “The Hardest Part” (1979), “Island of Lost Souls” (1982) and the uncensored version of “Maria” (1999).
