Artist: BLONDIE; Title: ATOMIC; Label: TONPRESS; Format: 7"; Cat. No.: S-342; 
Year: 1980; Country: POLAND

Still sticking with the euro theme of the last few most - today's vinyl is the Polish issue of Blondie's 1980 "Atomic".  The label, Tonpress, was a division of the state owned KAW media company, and was used as the outlet for mainly non-Polish recordings - which includes this one from Debbie Harry and Co.

The single's flip side is as per the UK issue - "Die Young Stay Pretty" which like the A Side comes from the 'Eat To The Beat' LP, and one that I've always kind've liked - having pretty much grown up with the song.  The A Side's not bad either!  Valuewise worth about the same as the UK issue - ie only a couple of quid, but nice to have for the qurio value.

And a quick thanks to whoever posted the original info on Tonpress on Discogs - much appreciated!
