I got hooked on Billy Joel in 1993 after the release of 'River of Dreams'. The vocals and lyrics of that particular song sent me on 4 month research into the man and his music. Fantastic stuff. Unrivalled in all respects. Most importantly though; UNIQUE(unlike most music around today).
I thought 'River of Dreams' was beautiful then i listened to his collaberation with Ray Charles and that blew me away. The mix of those two voices; UNIMAGINEABLE.
The compilation obviously deserves a 5-star going back to his early and humble beginnings and gradually and progressively bringing you 30years down the line to the Present. Generations of recent wil say 'BILLY JOEL BLOWS!!' and the man truly does.
