The Official Deborah Harry website
Debbie Harry was the lead singer for punk rock/pop band Blondie, and at the height of their success she went solo. Her solo work has never quite matched that success, but Deborah Harry continues to be a dynamic, creative singer with a powerful voice and presence. Blondie has reunited to create new work and perform live again.

Another personal favorite. This album has more variety than any album I know of. Ranging from rap, rock, 50s pop, to dance, and even some country twang, it has a little bit of everything. Unfortunately, it has a little too much. Sounds like she put everything she'd recorded on it rather than selecting the best. And at almost an hour, 3 or 4 of the worst could easily have been left off. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
