Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Billy Joel Piano Man Legacy Edition Giveaway and word on the Complete Albums Collection.
Billy Joel fans will rejoice in knowing that on November 8th that the Complete Albums Collection is being released for the first time! The Complete Albums Collection brings together for the first time, in one elegantly designed box, the artist’s complete catalog of 14 essential titles, from 1971′s Cold Spring Harbor through 1979′s Grammy-winning Album of The Year 52nd Street and 1981′s live Songs In The Attic to 2001′s Fantasies & Delusions, the first album of Billy’s classical compositions. Each album has been recently remastered in 24 bit audio for this edition and comes in cardboard jackets replicating the original album covers and sleeves. There are so many extras included in this set and what’s pretty cool is that Random copies of The Complete Albums Collection ordered through the Official Billy Joel store (www.CompleteBillyJoel.com) will be autographed by Billy Joel, so big fans will want to be sure to order their copy there. My two cents is that if you haven’t already finished all your Christmas shopping, this collection would make the perfect gift for fans of the Piano Man!
I’ve been listening to Billy Joel’s new released two-disc Legacy edition of “Piano Man” and have been enjoying it quite a bit. The Legacy Edition is of the 1973′s Piano Man album which exclusively features a long-lost fabled radio concert from 1972 which has never before been released. The concert includes three Billy Joel songs–”Long, Long Time,” “Josephine,” and “Rosalinda”–which do not appear on any other albums by the artist and, of course, the performance of “Captain Jack” which launched one of the most remarkable careers in show business. The legendary Sigma Sound performance is available exclusively on the new Legacy Edition of Piano Man (and is not included on The Complete Albums Collection). Billy Joel’s music is full of captivating tunes, thought provoking lyrics, and inspiration to take you through your day.
In celebration of this upcoming release, I’ll be giving away a copy of Billy Joel’s “Piano Man” Legacy Edition to one lucky reader.
