Billy Joel - Piano Man - Music four decades later, piano man (legacy edition) puts the groundbreaking 10-song album back in the spotlight. i hesitated as to whether or not this album deserved a 5 star as it is billy joel's earliest release (prior to digital remastering) however, with later albums such as innocent man and the stranger i decided to go for a 4 star as there was definitely room for improvement when you think of those 2 albums where every song was a greatest hit (near enough). the song performances are separated out from joel's introductions so that those who just want to hear the songs can program their cd player to skip the introductions or rip them without them. joel's first hit 'piano man' from 1973 is about the fate of the lonely losers at a late night bar serenading a piano player.
