Editors’ Notes The Police rose from the fading embers of UK punk, but they were hardly defined by it. Schooled in prog and jazz fusion, they drew heavily from classic British rock 'n' roll, pop, and reggae. Hear how The Stooges' spare riffage, The Hollies' bluesy jangle, and Desmond Dekker's soulful rocksteady helped shape the trio's deceptively expansive hit sound.
