Born in "The Bronx", NYC (1949) - (singer/songwriter/pianist) Billy Joel is a 6-time Grammy-award winner. He is the 6th best-selling recording artist in the USA with sales of his records exceeding 150 million copies, worldwide.
Greatly influenced in his songwriting by both the Beatles and the Four Seasons - Joel (at 68 years of age) has been in the music business for 5 decades now.
This "Greatest Hits" compilation is a 2-disc set that contains 25 tracks in all which were recorded by Joel (along with accompanying musicians) in the years between 1973-1993.
Two of my favourite tunes in this set are - "Uptown Girl" and "My Life".
This outstanding collection was my broader introduction to Billy Joel many years ago, and I am grateful for it. Prior to hearing it, I knew his '80s hits, but not all of his earlier ones. Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II and more by Billy Joel are also available to download and keep at a rate of five songs per week through Hennepin County Library's Freegal subscription; find Freegal under Online Resources.
Excellent and as always he brings it all to real life. Billy Joel is history.
2 cd set that proves that B.J. is and always will be an awesome writer, singer and a legend for all time!
Volume 3 has 3 "new" pieces which are are works just not up to the usual B.J. but the rest is GREAT!
