Billy Joel Greatest Hits Giveaway/Review

My husband is a HUGE BILLY JOEL FAN! So when I got the opportunity to do a review of BILLY JOEL THE HITS CD! He was super excited! So I asked him to write his own review, my hubby's perspective:

I've always enjoyed the music of Billy Joel. He is a master at telling stories through music and this album showcases the best of his work. From "Piano Man" through "River of Dreams," we get a glimpse into the life of Billy Joel from his identity as an entertainer to his search for meaning. I was a bit disappointed that his song, "Downeastern Alexa" was not included since the maritime environment of Long Island Sound is a part of his identity. Having seen him in concert twice, this album includes all of the songs that thrill his fans.

Can you believe that 2011 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Billy Joel's first solo album, Cold Spring Harbor? Columbia/Legacy Recordings will celebrate the occasion with a definitive re-issue project of newly restored and expanded Legacy editions of the complete Billy Joel catalog, newly curated collections of rarities from the vaults, previously unavailable studio tracks and live performances, home video releases and more.

Among the upcoming releases in the Columbia/Legacy Billy Joel 40th anniversary commemoration will be Billy Joel - Live At Shea Stadium, a 2CD/DVD and stand-alone Blu-ray edition of Billy's historic 2008 Shea Stadium concerts, a Legacy Edition of the 1973 Piano Man album, a Complete Albums Collection featuring 14 of Billy's original albums with a bonus disc collecting 16 non-album tracks and more.

One lucky Memphis Mommy reader will win a copy of the newest Billy Joel CD THE HITS!

Definitely Piano Man. It brings back high school memories -- oh does that date me?

I used the quote "Only the Good Die Young" under my senior portrait when I was in high school. I've loved Billy Joel music since I was a young girl - I like many of his songs - especially "Just the Way You Are."
