5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a back catalogue of unseen material 1 Jan 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you have been a Joel fan for years, B sides, demo's and alt versions of songs have been impossible to come by. As the man has not released a new album since'93, I thought this selection would never come to press.
If you are a fan from the early days this collection is a must. It gives an insight into early song developments and also covers previous bands Joel was in before his solo career. (Will there ever be a new album?, or another UK tour)

I really love this collection of music. I have listened to it all over and over again! I have been a Billy Joel fan for years, and it's great to be able to hear so much top quality, but previously unreleased stuff. The demo's seem almost personal - listen to Christie Lee - they seem to be having such a good time you just want to be there too! It just proves what an incredible musician he is. Definitely one of, if not the best singer/songwriters of all time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 23 Dec 2005
By D. Tuck
Format:Audio CD
This is an absolute must for any Billy Joel fan! The vast majority of the songs in this collection were either never available, or very hard to find. It's fun listening to previously unreleased versions of classics such as Piano Man, and Billy's original reggae version of Only The Good Die Young (!!!) Superb value for 4 CDs and a DVD. Wonderful must-have boxset.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Master Of All Time - Confirmed! 7 Jan 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you are a fan of Billy Joel, then you will already know the following fact: Despite Billy's main influences (e.g. Beethoven, The Beatles) rising to fame before him with extraordinary catalogues of work, he is the number one artist of all time.
Agreed, he may be an unlikely looking rock star, but his repertoire is the finest and most consistent in terms of quality, variety, lyrically, musically, and educationally.
'My Lives' is a box set which amazed me - there are at least 5 songs on it that should have been released! 'Money or love' is a song of real quality and would have fitted in the 'Bridge' album perfectly. 'End of the World' could quite easily be a number one hit for a band like Franz Ferdinand with some adjustments to the arrangement. The list goes on...
If you are a fan of Billy - buy it. If you are a song-writer - buy it. If you want to learn about a living legend and how he writes - buy it. If you have ears that work - buy it!
