Debbie Harry – French Kissin’ In The USA (12″)

Debbie Does It On Her Own

She did like to release some solo stuff as her band Blondie struggled to have the same impact as the late 70’s. A handful of albums were released during the 80’s, this being off the “Rockbird” album. The track is a bit of a synth fest and was quite a big hit for her. The Latin Rascals were on the mix over the production of Seth Justman (keyboardist with the J Geils Band) It sounds something that Malcolm Mclaren could have put out, an extended version of the 7″, so quite unspoilt for fans familiar with the radio version.

The B-side is a contrast, rock, as it says in the title, with a weird honky-tonk piano and was written with Chris Stein.
