Blondie – Autoamerican VG+/VG+

$30.00

Autoamerican is the fifth studio album by American rock band Blondie. It was released in November 1980 and reached No. 3 in the UK charts, No. 7 in the US, and No. 8 in Australia.

The album was a radical departure for the band, with the opening track “Europa” setting the pace. The track is a dramatic instrumental overture featuring orchestral arrangements and ending with vocalist Debbie Harry declaiming a passage about automobile culture over an electronic soundtrack. Besides rock and pop tracks, the band explored a wide range of other musical genres: “Here’s Looking at You” and “Faces” show jazz and blues influences, “The Tide Is High” was a cover of the Paragons’ 1967 Jamaican ska song, whereas “Rapture” combined funk, rock, jazz, and even saw them embracing the then-emerging genre of rap. The closing track, “Follow Me”, was a cover of a torch song from Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s 1960 Broadway musical Camelot.
