Although poorly received on its initial release in 1978, The Police’s 1978 debut delivered three smash hits for A&M with 'So Lonely', 'Can't Stand Losing You' and 'Roxanne', eventually making the UK Top 10 in 1979. With their trademark fusion of reggae and rock, shot through with a definite pop sensibility, their debut still carried traces of their punkier roots, spent trawling the London club circuit of the late 70s. Thus, the album “offers a little something for everyone” according to Rolling Stone magazine, and featured “Loud and energetic rock'n'roll but short and catchy tunes (remember tunes?) with great playing and tight, interesting arrangements” according to Smash Hits. A US club tour exposed them to a New Wave audience, and with airplay for ‘Roxanne’, helped establish the band’s fame across America, reaching its zenith in 1983 with the Police’s final studio album, Synchronicity.

Half speeding is an elaborate process whereby the source is played back at half its normal speed and the turntable on the disc cutting lathe is running at 16 2/3 R.P.M. Because both the source and the cut were running at half their “normal” speeds everything plays back at the right speed when the record is played at home.
