Billy Joel is coming back to Madison Square Garden next Friday November 5th– to begin his 50 years in the business!

Come on! Billy– we’re young! Wasn’t “Piano Man” like yesterday!

Tied into this. Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Billy Joel – The Vinyl Collection, Vol.1 also on November 5, kicking off a celebration of the legendary musician’s 50 years of artistry.

PS UPDATE Just received the box set, and it’s to drool over.

A definitive 9LP library chronicling Billy Joel’s evolution as a songwriter, performer and recording artist during his rise from obscurity to international superstardom in the 1970s, The Vinyl Collection, Vol. 1 brings together the artist’s first six solo studio albums (Cold Spring Harbor, Piano Man, Streetlife Serenade, Turnstiles, The Stranger, 52nd Street) with his first live album (Songs in the Attic) and an exclusive pressing of Live at The Great American Music Hall – 1975, a previously unreleased concert recording available for the first time in the boxset as a double 12″ vinyl album.

All titles have been sourced from the original album tapes and prepared by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound. The boxset includes a 50+ page booklet highlighting Billy’s early career through archival photos, an essay by Anthony DeCurtis, Billy’s personal observations and insights on his songs and albums, and tributes from his fellow musicians, artists and celebrities.
