    This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
    Each album in this set is on its’ own CD. The albums included in this set, together with their release dates are:
    Cold Spring Harbour (1971)
    Glass Houses (1980)
    Songs In The Attic (1981 Live)
    The Nylon Curtain (1982)
    Kohuept (1987, Live)

    These albums mostly represent the mid part of Billy Joel’s career as singer/song writer. Only “Cold Spring Harbor” represents his early years. All present the soft rock that he is known for, mostly with soft, simple accompaniment. Only the 1987 album, Kohuept has somewhat overbearing accompaniment. Even then, that accompaniment doesn’t overwhelm the vocals as accompaniment often does in rock.

    The remastering was done with great care. I heard none of the distortions of the original sound that all too often marrs the remastering of many CDs. Many CDs that I’ve recently purchased have obvious alterations of the vocal track that can result when the higher frequencies are pushed without due regard to the affect on the sound of the vocals.

    Highly recommended to those who enjoy soft rock in general and Billy Joel in particular. If you don’t already have some of these albums, it’d be hard to go wrong buying this set.

    Had all of these on vinyl. Great to finally have them together on CD.
