Billy Joel's "River of Dreams" tour in 2010 was his last
of the Pop/Rock genre tours. Billy now 62, is concentrating
on a more classical style of composition without words, a
piano man, composing purely for piano rather than for vocals.
That being the case, a DVD which creates the atmosphere
of Billy's concerts and comprises some of the best videos
of his major hits seems an ideal way to remember this great
singer, balladeer and piano man extraordinaire.
Billy Joel - The Ultimate Collection gives us 26 tracks of
great songs, Piano Man, The River of Dreams, We Didn't Start
The Fire, The Longest Time, Honesty, Uptown Girl, Goodnight
Saigon, Leningrad, New York State of Mind and many more
favourites are there.
If you already have The Ultimate Collection on CD, then this
DVD, whilst not as inclusive as the CD, (the CD has 36 tracks
the DVD 26)will bring back the atmosphere of Billy's unique
tour concerts several of which I enjoyed.
This DVD is well worth buying, my copy cost under a Fiver !
