Blondie

I've recently discovered that I really like Blondie. But, the only album I have of theirs is the Back to Back Hits one with Pat Benatar (who is also really good). So, what's a good first album to get of theirs? And, on a slightly different note, is there anyway to get all of their albums for one cheap price?

They even recently remastered their albums with bonus tracks.

For me anyway, Blondie IS, and always will be, "Eat To The Beat"

If you are on a fixed income, I'd start the one below and go from there. I have not upgraded my Best of Blondie CD yet (which has 12 of the 19 tracks) but I plan on it. A friend has Greatest Hits and it's awesome.

This cd features 7 number one hits:
Heart Of Glass (US & UK)
Sunday Girl (UK)
Atomic (UK & US dance chart in 1995)
Call Me (US & UK)
The Tide Is High (US & UK)
Rapture (US)
Maria (UK, only # 82 in the US)

Also get these 12:
Dreaming
One Way or Another
X Offender
Hanging on the Telephone
Rip Her to Shreds
Picture This
In the Flesh
Denis
(I'm Always Touched by Your) Prescence, Dear
Union City Blue
Hardest Part
Island of Lost Souls

I want to stay away from best ofs, so I think I'm going to get Parallel Lines. This is kind of off-topic, but are there any other CD clubs besides Columbia House and BMG? I want to get the reissues (for Blondie and The Ramones, to be specific), but neither club offers all the cds.
