December 28, 2017 Record of the Day

In 1979 Deborah Harry and Blondie went all the way to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Heart of Glass.” Rolling Stone magazine includes the single as part of their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The single was a disco version of a song Deborah Harry had been working on for years, first as a ballad and then as a reggae song but when the disco era hit; the perfect fit was found. Most 45’s with color picture sleeve are worth no more than $5.00 but a black and white hand-drawn picture sleeve is worth up to $400.00. Both versions are shown here.
