1980 Grammy Award Winner: Best Male Rock Vocal Performance
The 1980 album begins with the sound of glass shattering - Billy Joel decided to
change musical gears for his seventh album and with producer Phil Ramone, Glass
Houses delivered a mix of hard rock, soft rock, pop, and new wave. New sounds
are present on this record, and Billy's acoustic piano gives way to heavier
keyboards, meaty guitar riffs and more prominent drums.
Glass Houses still displays the hallmarks of Billy Joel the pop craftsman and
features his first #1 single, "It's Still Rock and Roll To Me", as well as the
hits "Sometimes a Fantasy" and "Don't Ask Me Why". The album was #1 for six
weeks and ranked #4 on Billboard's year-end album chart.
Joel remains one of the greatest hitmakers of our time and this album gives us a
look at a younger artist and what is regarded as his first pure rock album.
You've never heard your favorite music sound this good! The clarity is
exceptional, you will hear deeper lows and crisper highs. Treat yourself to a
musical experience you've never had before! These new
24KT+ Gold CDs reproduce the ultimate sound of a classic recorded
performance without the irregular plated surfaces of standard aluminum discs.
Audio Fidelity's 24KT+ Gold CD series brings
you classic music in deluxe packaging with see-through slip cases using original
album art, all beautifully reproduced. They only use the original master mixes
played back on a specially constructed vintage playback deck. Here's where the
PLUS (+) comes in: The analog masters are put through their new proprietary
analog to digital converter which reinforces the resolution of the original
masters adding true "breath of life" to the music. Without any further sonic
manipulation the master is shipped directly to the manufacturing plant for
etching in "real time" onto the glass surface by laser. The end result of this
unique mastering process is a compact disc with the warm sound of the original
analog master tape combined with a genuine 24 karat gold surface free of any
type of physical defect making Audio Fidelity's 24KT+
Gold CD series truly one of a kind!
"...Glass Houses connects immediately with a string of hits never
surpassed...as powerful and succinct as Joel gets."
