Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Billy Joel's Piano Man #Giveaway

Monday, November 21, 2011 Posted by Dina N

It's hard to believe that Billy Joel began his recording career 40 years ago. This fall, Sony Music /Legacy Recordings is commemorating this talented musician with a special release of Piano Man (2 CD Legacy Edition).

Piano Man is Billy Joel's debut album with Columbia Records. The new release includes the remastered 10-song original album. A second disc presents for the first time Billy's live performance at Philadelphia's Sigma Sound Studio on April 15, 1972. I enjoy Billy Joel's music and loved listening to the new release. My favorite is the second CD in the Piano Man set because of the magic and palpable energy of his live performance. Even at that early stage in his musical career, it's clear that Billy Joel's talent will go a long way.

Here is a complete list of the songs included in the new Piano Man edition:

Disc One: The Original Album
1. Travelin' Prayer
2. Piano Man
3. Ain't No Crime
4. You're My Home
5. The Ballad Of Billy The Kid
6. Worse Comes To Worse
7. Stop In Nevada
8. If I Only Had The Words (To Tell You)
9. Somewhere Along The Line
10. Captain Jack

Disc Two: The Sigma Sound Studios Performance
Travelin' Prayer
The Ballad of Billy the Kid
She's Got A Way
Everybody Loves You Now
Long, Long Time
Captain Jack
Tomorrow is Today

Piano Man was released on November 8, the same day that Billy Joel - The Complete Albums Collection came out. This remarkable edition has the complete catalog of 14 Billy Joel albums, from 1971's ColdSpring Harbor through 1979's Grammy-winning Album of The Year 52nd Street and 1981's live Songs In The Attic to 2001's Fantasies & Delusions, the first album of Billy's classical compositions. Each album has been remastered in 24 bit audio and comes in cardboard jackets replicating the original album covers and sleeves.

Both of these editions would make wonderful gifts for Billy Joel fans and for music buffs.
