The Police - Reggatta De Blanc album FLAC

Reggatta De Blanc - Remastered 2003. 'Reggatta de Blanc' was actually a stage jam from the middle of 'Can't Stand Losing You' that eventually solidified into a new piece. Stewart Copeland: Revolver, 4/00. I think this is far more of a good dance album than the first one.

By 1979's Reggatta de Blanc (translation: White Reggae), nonstop touring had sharpened the Police's original blend of reggae-rock to perfection, resulting in breakthrough success. Containing a pair of massive hit singles - the inspirational anthem "Message in a Bottle" and the spacious "Walking on the Moon" - the album also signaled a change in the band's sound.

This version has no distribution code or label code printed on the sleeve rear.

About Reggatta de Blanc. The title track on 1979’s Reggatta de Blanc, elements of jazz improvisation and scat singing, reggae rhythm and bass, and punk attitude are infused into a three minute rocker. People would tend to want their money back after that. So we had to extend the songs ad nauseum so we could get paid at the end of the night.

Reggatta de Blanc is the second album by The Police, released in 1979. Message in a Bottle", a Sting-penned song about alienation, opens the album. It is followed by the mostly instrumental "Reggatta de Blanc", (the title being a pseudo-French translation referring to the album's style of "white reggae") one of the few songs written by all members of the Police.

The final verdict is Reggatta De Blanc is the most skip worthy Police album, a quintessential case to relish the singles and forget the rest, the only time in their history when mandatory. Although the overtly positive moments of Reggatta De Blanc are few, the times when focus supplants pretension prove The Police had enough chops to carry out a substantial, landmark career.

The first three Police albums, Outlandos d'Amour, Reggatta de Blanc, and Zenyatta Mondatta, were named by their manager, Miles Copeland (Police drummer Stewart Copeland's brother), using words he made up. "Reggatta de Blanc" is the only one that is also the name of a song. When it came time to record their second album, they turned this jam into its own song and made it the title track.
