Als The Police 1977 mit ihrem Debut-Album <<Outlandos d'Amour>> aufhorchen liessen, fielen sie im damaligen Trend zunächst in die Schublade Punk-Rock. Zwar hatten ihre Musik und die ersten Hits <<Roxanne>> und <<So lonely>> in der Tat eine nervöse und kantige Rauheit, doch waren Sänger und Bassist Sting, Gitarrist Andy Summers und Schlagzeuger Stewart Copeland damals bereits sehr viel versiertere Musiker als die meisten ihrer Punk-Kollegen. Zum einen hatten sie ein Flair für knackige Pop-Songs, zum andern zunehmend Lust auf vertrackte Rhythmen - allem voran auf Reggae. -- <<Reggatta de Blanc>> - der Titel ihres zweiten Albums - meinte in Pseudo-Französisch genau das: weisser Reggae - aber unüberhörbar inspiriert von Bob Marley und seinen Wailers. Dank ihrer ersten Non-Stop-Tournee standen The Police vor den Aufnahmen zu <<Reggatta de Blanc>> am idealen Schnittpunkt von Perfektion und ungestümer Kraft. -- Mit <<Message in a Bottle>> und <<Walking on the Moon>> feierten sie in England ihre ersten beiden Nummer eins Hits. Und schafften sich als super-coole, wasserstoff-blondierte Jungs die Basis für den Super-Star-Durchbruch auch in den USA mit dem Album <<Zenyatta Mondatta>> im Jahr darauf.
