Capitol's three-disc Blondie Holiday Gift Pack
combines Greatest Hits: Sound & Vision (both audio and DVD) with the remastered Parallel Lines
album, which was originally released in 1978. The first disc rounds up the most obvious and popular songs in their original versions, spoiled only by the unnecessary remix of "Rapture Riders" (Blondie
vs. the Doors
), which combines "Rapture" with "Riders on the Storm" -- for reasons unknown! Parallel Lines
includes four previously released bonus tracks: "Once I Had a Love (aka The Disco Song)" and live versions of "Bang a Gong (Get It On)," "I Know But I Don't Know," and "Hanging on the Telephone."
