This November Sony’s Legacy Recordings will release The Vinyl Collection, Vol. 1 a new Billy Joel box set that brings together his studio long-players from the 1970s and a couple of live albums.
The 9LP box features the albums Cold Spring Harbor (1971), Piano Man (1973), Streetlife Serenade (1974), Turnstiles (1976), The
Stranger (1977) and 52nd Street (1978).
The 1981 live album Songs in the Attic is also included, as is a previously unreleased live album Live at the Great American Music Hall which will only be available in the box set and won’t be issued digitally. This is a 2LP set which is why the box is a 9LP collection.
The box includes a 50+ page booklet that highlights Joel’s early career through photos, quotes, and an essay. All titles have been “sourced from the original album tapes and prepared by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound”.
The Vinyl Collection, Vol. 1 is released on 5 November 2021.
