The Police – Reggatta de Blanc

Non-stop touring by The Police can be thanked for sharpening their original blend of reggae-rock to perfection. When ‘Reggatta de Blanc’ (translation: White Reggae) was released, it resulted in breakthrough success.

Where ‘Outlandos D’Amour’ introduced the world to the trio of Sting, Stuart Copeland and Andy Summers – 1979’s ‘Regatta de Blanc’ helped confirm The Police as stars. ‘Reggatta’ was polished and fully developed, containing massive hits like ‘Message in a Bottle’ and ‘Walking on the Moon’.

Incorporating world music and jazz influences as well as reggae and roots, The Police synthesized their influences into something unique, becoming one of the biggest bands on the planet.
