23-Times Platinum Collection Among the 20 Best-Selling Albums in History
All of Joel's Peak-Era Hits In One Place
26-Track Set Includes Standards Such as "Piano Man," "It's Still Rock and Roll
to Me," "Pressure," "Allentown," "Uptown Girl," and Many More
It's the third best-selling record in American history. It contains
nearly every one of Billy Joel's peak-era chart hits as well as a smattering of
fan favorites. It encapsulates exactly why the singer-songwriter-pianist
remains one of the most beloved, commercially successful, relentlessly
creative, and oft-referenced artists in music. Spanning 1973 to 1985, Joel's
Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II functions as a hand-guided tour through pop,
rock, doo-wop, blues, R&B, blue-eyed soul, and chamber jazz. It is rivaled by
few—if any—other compilations.
Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g vinyl at RTI,
Mobile Fidelity's pristine reissue of this ubiquitous classic finally does
justice to the Hall of Fame caliber music. Part of the label's restoration of
Joel's most crucial releases, Greatest Hits Volume I & Volume II literally
takes on new life. Devoid of the flatness, squelched dynamics, and limited
soundscapes that defined previous versions, the collection brings Joel's genius
and intentions into a more transparent light.
Is it any wonder that this double set has moved more than 23 million copies to
date? No. All told, 20 Top 40 singles line up alongside six album-track
favorites, the songs all instantly recognized by name. This is touchstone
material that's long crossed over into multiple generations of listeners and
eradicated genre boundaries, and formed the basis of Joel's constantly sold-out
concerts for the past two-plus decades.
As demonstrated on diverse fare ranging from "Piano Man" to "The Stranger",
"Big Shot" to "Uptown Girl", and the pair of then-new tracks ("You're Only
Human (Second Wind)" and "The Night Is Still Young"), Joel always succeeds in
wrapping his head around rich swaths of American pop, his music stopping by way
of New Orleans, Kansas City, Memphis, Chicago, and other milestone cities.
The singer's simple, yet disarmingly effective lyrics speak to universal truths
and uplift. Joel's melodic flair does the rest, filling out tunes with
comprehensive arrangements, towering harmonies, and a swift sense of purpose.
His catalog testifies on behalf of unimpeachably ovational songwriting and
execution. Experience all his hits in heart-rustling fidelity. They, and you,
have waited long enough for such an intimate encounter.
