Billy Joel fans: it’s time to celebrate the artist’s now-50-year career!
The famed New York songwriter has recently announced a new definitive 9-record collection chronicling the “Piano Man” singer’s growth and evolution as a songwriter, performer, and recording artist from his rise in the ‘70s to living legend status as he became a household name.
The collection, called, The Vinyl Collection, Vol. 1, which looks to be the first in a series, will be released November 5 on Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings.
Vol. 1 will focus on the 72-year-old Joel’s 1970s era, a press release said, from his album, Cold Spring Harbor to Songs in the Attic.
