"Most Of All - The Best Of Deborah Harry" is a compilation album of recordings by Debbie Harry, released by Chrysalis Records/EMI shortly after the reformed Blondie had topped the charts all over the world with their comeback single "Maria".
The compilation gathers material from Harry's four solo albums for the Chrysalis label, "Koo Koo", "Rockbird", "Def, Dumb and Blonde" and "Debravation", and unlike 1998's "Deborah Harry Collection" it contains most of the singles issued between the years 1981 and 1993, including Harry's biggest solo hits "French Kissin' In The USA" and "I Want That Man". "Most of All" also includes non-album singles like "Rush Rush", "Feel The Spin" and her 1990 duet with Iggy Pop, "Well Did You Evah!" as well alternative single mixes not available on the regular studio albums.
With the new millennium only one month away EMI issued remixed dance versions of Harry's 1989 hit "I Want That Man" to promote the album, with the updated mixes by D-Bop and Almighty both cleverly accentuating the first line of the chorus: "...here comes the twenty-first century....". "Most Of All" concludes with two of these mixes.
