Oh Billy where did it all go wrong. The quality of his early work is incredible, Piano Man, Turnstiles, Streetlife Serenade and the Stranger, which was the album that made him a star. I felt though after the Stranger his work tailed off and it seemed like he was producing just radio friendly material, light years away from songs like Piano man and Captain Jack. I suppose people were buying it, so can't blame him, but i found it all very tepid. I have only just purchased this, which was his debut album and it stands up well amongst his earlier work. Early listenings have impressed me, and i reckon it will be on the player for a while yet.
