I was actually introduced to the Police in 1982 or so and they are one of the groups that really mark a specific time in my life along with a few other bands. This Police CD looks to be pretty good, and while it is previously released material everything on it is darn good and will make a nice addition to my music collection.

I can remember listening to Roxanne and Every Little Thing She Does is Magic constantly when I was 16 or so. Even though I was always into Heavy Metal there are a few bands that were not that just stick in my head and make me want to sing the words.

Roxanne…You don’t need to turn on the red light…

Well, you darn sure don’t need to hear my singing, that’s when the dogs start howling, but you get the idea.

Right now it looks like the closest they will be coming to Atlanta are two dates down in Tampa in July and the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester Tennessee next month, although that may change. I don’t get to go to too many concerts anymore, but it would be really cool to go see them this summer. It would certainly give me an excuse to go to Tennessee this summer. There are something like 100+ artists performing at the festival. That would be cool.

Also included in the new Police CD is a foldout poster from 1979.


Now I feel really old. I was thirteen in 1979. I may post more about it later. I haven’t checked to see if it’s going to be available on iTunes yet, but with the Poster this may be one hard copy that I want to add to my collection unopened and then buy the music itself online…
