Blondie: Images 1976-1980 (2007)
This stunning visual memoir portrays a unique period in music and fashion. Shot by Roberta Bayley, one of the New York punk scene's most prominent photographers, the photographs chronicle the band from its earliest days, performing before hard-to-please crowds at Max's Kansas City and CBGB's, to global superstardom at the end of the 1970s. At every stage, Bayley was present to record Blondie's swift, dramatic rise to the top. Featuring 235 candid photographs, many previously unpublished, Blondie: Images 1976-1980 offers a fly-on-the-wall visual perspective of life with the band during these tumultuous years. Bayley's talent for being in the right place at the right time ensures that her photographs capture the truth of the moment in a dramatic and revealing manner. The images, enhanced and complemented by Bayley's own first-hand descriptions, provide an inimitable evocation of one of pop culture's most creative and exciting periods.
