Reggatta de Blanc is the second studio album by English rock band The Police, released on the second of October, 1979. It features the band's first two UK No. 1 hits: "Message in a Bottle" and "Walking on the Moon". It was their first album to reach No. 1 on the UK Album Charts.
By 1979's Reggatta de Blanc (translation: White Reggae), nonstop touring had sharpened the Police's original blend of reggae-rock to perfection, resulting in breakthrough success. Containing a pair of massive hit singles - the inspirational anthem "Message in a Bottle" and the spacious "Walking on the Moon" - the album also signaled a change in the band's sound. Whereas their debut got its point across with raw, energetic performances, Reggatta de Blanc was much more polished production-wise and fully developed from a songwriting standpoint.

'Reggatta de Blanc' was actually a stage jam from the middle of 'Can't Stand Losing You' that eventually solidified into a new piece. Stewart Copeland: Revolver, 4/00. Those people who indicted the Police's debut album - citing the trio's arch exploitation of the New Wave - will find plenty on 'Reggatta de Blanc' to justify charges of recidivism. The group once again exhibits the same high-standard, crafty superciliousness that marred 'Outlandos d'Amour'. The other ones are complete bullshit," announces drummer Stewart Copeland, introducing the new record's 'On Any Other Day', his mocking chronicle of suburban miseries.

The first three Police albums, Outlandos d'Amour, Reggatta de Blanc, and Zenyatta Mondatta, were named by their manager, Miles Copeland (Police drummer Stewart Copeland's brother), using words he made up. "Reggatta de Blanc" is the only one that is also the name of a song. The fourth and fifth Police albums got away from this naming convention and were titled by Sting: Ghost in the Machine and Synchronicity. When it came time to record their second album, they turned this jam into its own song and made it the title track. More songs from The Police. More songs that start with a count-in.
