Actual miniaturized version of the 12" LP in 4" CD version. Britain's POLICE got its start in the late 70s days of punk, but the trio's background in jazz, fusion, and rock belied the punky image suggested by the bands dyed-blond hair. Indeed, where many punks were inspired amateurs, the Police (Sting on bass and vocals, Andy Summers on guitar, and Stewart Copeland on drums) were accomplished players who quickly developed a sophisticated approach to the power-trio format. The material constructed with guitar, bass and drums often at tempos that would never be matched in their later studio recordings, stands apart. Andy Summers guitar textures are here more traditional and without their later ethereal quality, but his chord choices on ROXANNE for example, or his expansive solo lines on SO LONELY would have baffled most of the burgeoning punk guitar school. Stewart Copelands drumming, enriched as it is by a multinational upbringing and stage experience in the last gasps of the progressive-rock movement. The rhythms of reggae are woven into the music and Sting's vocals pay conscious tribute to Bob Marley. The songs are mostly about love, or a lack of personal connection and the hits alone are worth the price of the album. Track Listings 1. Next to You 2. So Lonely 3. Roxanne 4. Hole in My Life 5.
