A good representation of the modern Blondie, Live By Request provides a nice performance. The band sounds solid and the concert mixes a variety of eras cleanly. The DVD offers excellent picture with positive audio and a minor mix of extras.
Back during the punk/New Wave revolution in the mid to late Seventies, Blondie stood as one of the genre’s biggest acts. That didn’t pan out into continued popularity over the years. The band enjoyed a few hits but split after 1982 and didn’t come up all that much in discussions of the era’s greats. Compared to legends like the Police, Elvis Costello and Talking Heads, Blondie got relegated to secondary status.
But that doesn’t mean Blondie didn’t put out some good pop punk material, and they maintained enough of a following to make a late Nineties reunion viable. Shot in the spring of 2004, Live By Request represents the resuscitated Blondie as they promoted their 2003 album The Curse of Blondie.
