Debut Album on 180g Vinyl Import LP Includes Smash
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 428/500!
The Police’s 1978 debut delivered three smash hits for A&M with "So Lonely,"
"Can't Stand Losing You" and "Roxanne." With their trademark fusion of reggae
and rock, shot through with a definite pop sensibility, their debut still
carried traces of their punkier roots, spent trawling the London club circuit of
the late 70s. Thus, the album “offers a little something for everyone” according
to Rolling Stone magazine, and featured “Loud and energetic rock'n'roll but
short and catchy tunes (remember tunes?) with great playing and tight,
interesting arrangements” according to Smash Hits. A US club tour exposed them
to a New Wave audience, and with airplay for ‘Roxanne’, helped establish the
band’s fame across America, reaching its zenith in 1983 with the Police’s final
studio album, Synchronicity.
