More Info:This 2-CD Legacy Edition marks the album's 30th anniversary with a new remaster of the original album as well as his previously unreleased 6/3/77 Carnegie Hall concert. This is the album that truly launched his career.
You may know all the lyrics to "We Didn't Start the Fire" (and if you do, honestly, what's wrong with you?), but the Piano Man's most memorable singles came from his fifth LP, which is fully deserving of its deluxe reissue treatment. Producer Phil Ramone re-mastered the 1977 classic, which boasts "Only the Good Die Young," "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)," "She's Always a Woman" and "Just the Way You Are." Hell, we could recite the entire tracklist'"c'mon, "Scenes From an Italian Restaurant"!'"and you'd be nodding happily. What projects like these are really about are the bonuses, of course, and Joel and Columbia didn't skimp. In addition to the album, you get previously unreleased concert CD "Live at Carnegie Hall 1977," and a live DVD with a rare BBC gig from the same era. If that doesn't do it for you'"and we can't imagine how it couldn't'"make a pilgrimage to Shea Stadium this summer and watch Joel perform the last ever concert(s) at the decaying Queens institution.
