Blondie Share Previously Unreleased Home Recording Of ‘Mr. Sightseer’

Blondie recently shared a previously unreleased home recording of “Mr. Sightseer,” which is set to be included in their upcoming collection, Blondie: Against The Odds 1974-1982.

The “Mr. Sightseer” track, which has been remastered by Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Graves at Osiris Studio, serves as the B-side to another recently released rare gem “Moonlight Drive.”

The band originally recorded the song in 1978 on a TEAC TCA-43 four-track reel-to-reel at the residence of Chris Stein and Debbie Harry.

“The lyric is not good at all,” Harry joked in a press release. “The song’s not too bad. It’s just a little simplistic. It didn’t ever get really developed or finished.”

The Blondie: Against The Odds 1974-1982 collection, due out on August 26 via UMC and The Numero Group, will feature 124 tracks and 36 previously unissued recordings, including takes from the band’s first-ever basement studio session, alternate versions, outtakes, and demos.

The collection also delivers all of Blondie’s first six studio albums, with each being remastered from the original analog tapes and vinyl cut at Abbey Road Studios.
