Billy Joel - Streetlife Serenade [LP] (Anniversary Edition, 180 Gram, gatefold, limited)
Billy Joel's third hit LP Streetlife Serenade will always be revered as one of the classic early albums
from this superstar singer/songwriter. Released in 1974, he was now successfully entrenched with a record
buying audience who were hipping others to the great new sounds of the Piano Man. As his tours became
sell outs and airplay was flourishing with his new single The Entertainer, Streetlife Serenade soon became
the album of choice for a plethora of radio stations nationwide.
Streetlife Serenade shows this New York native's love affair with Los Angeles, where he was living and
playing at the time, prior to his rise to superstar fame. Forty years later these tunes still resonate with his
fans as Billy Joel is currently embarking on a very successful concert tour, and Friday Music is proud to be
a part of the celebration with one of his greatest masterworks Streetlife Serenade.
As another installment in our exclusive Billy Joel/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this
impeccably mastered audiophile LP features some of his greatest songs like the brilliant album opener
Streetlife Serenader, the funk infused Los Angelenos, the stellar instrumental The Mexican Connection,
which was used to open his 1974 tour, and his smash single The Entertainer.
The masterpiece contains even more of his most loved classics like the stunning ballad Souvenir and
the country barroom flavor of Last of the Big Time Spenders.
For a very limited time, we are also enhancing your listening enjoyment with a first time gatefold cover
artwork presentation, which features the original LP sized cover art not seen in years, as well as lyrics to all
of these great Billy Joel songs, making this a keepsake for years to come.
