  • BILLY JOEL: THE ESSENTIAL BILLY JOEL: 2001: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Joel released a dozen pop albums in his career and hasn’t released one in 24 years. He’s had 33 Top 40 hits- and wrote them all himself. He still tours and remains popular. Most of the hits are on this 2 CD set. My favorite Billy Joel song- “Angry Young Man” isn’t though- but I see there is a 3rd disc released in 2008 that has it on.

  • CAN YOU DIG IT? 70’S SOUL EXPERIENCE: 2001: DISC 1: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: 6 discs- 136 songs- nearly 7 hours and 50 minutes of music. Not much not to like. A great overview. Does it have every essential song? Of course not and the final disc is kind of weak but overall an outstanding overview of great 70’s soul music. Some of these songs are ones you don’t hear on the radio all the time nowadays so it was a nice listen– [not that I listen to the radio much at all these days }

  1. favourite Billy Joel? tough question!
    I might have to go with All for Leyna – but I’m sure I’d say scenes from an italian restaurant or sleeping with the television on if I was asked again tomorrow!
