    Billy Joel’s Vocal Expressions

    Posted

    The Essential Billy Joel is a thirty six song set that displays many of his hits from different stages of his career such as; Uptown Girl, You May Be Right and We Didn’t Start The Fire. Many songs touch on various aspects of his soul such as his side dealing with being in love in the Always A Woman side and what appears to be a spiritual theme with River of Dreams. As with many others, I was first exposed to Billy Joel’s music growing up (my first song that I remember hearing on the radio that was by Billy Joel was around the time I was 8 or 9 years old with the song We Didn’t Start The Fire. Nonetheless, The Essential Billy Joel Collection is great for those who are familiar with 80’s music with a calming rock vibe in many songs and an upbeat pop vibe in others.

    The only Billy Joel CD set you'll need

    This is a great collection of songs. After looking through lots of Billy Joel albums and collections, I couldn't find ONE that had everything I was looking for. There was always one song missing here or there. Then I found this set. It has every song I was looking for and more. NOTE: The round center clips that hold the CDs in were SO tight that it was really difficult to get the discs out. Ultimately, the case and clips broke while I was trying to get the CD out undamaged. I just put the discs in a new case.

    This CD collection of his best is THE CD Set to own! i can never get enough of Billy Joel, the piano man that he was and the hits that rolled through his fingers out of his vocal chords.Thank goodness for Best Buy that provides all of these 'old school' albums and CD disc sets. If you're looking for the essential music of Billy Joel, this collection is a great bargain for you! The sound quality is high!

    Contains all the big hits and lesser-known favorites from Billy Joel's active years. It has the hits in the order they were released so you can easily listen to a particular time span of his career just by starting with the first one from that period. I highly recommend this as the complete and definitive collection that represents Billy Joel's whole career.

    Great CD. All the best Billy Joel ever made. I truly enjoy listening to him and brings back many memories since songs are over a long period of time. I listen at least twice per week since I have so many other CD's, but really enjoy this one. CD was in very good condition with no problems. If you like Billy Joel, this is the CD for you.

    We enjoy every song and album this musician has put out over the years. I have not seen this CD - so purchased this for my hubby. Can't harm in having spares or duplicates to replace those that were lost over time. This will be well worth the purchase, since the music gives us the memories of "real" music that speaks of our Generation.

    I bought this on the recommendation of a store employee who explained the difference between "essential" and "best of" (always buy "essential" if you can). I needed to update my cassette tapes, and this album does it. Enjoying piano music and his best hits.
