The first album I ever bought was 52nd Street which is a bit embarrassing considering the way my music taste was heading. I loved the song ‘Big shot’ and it was enough to get me to part with cash and start a life time of me giving a shit load of money to record companies.
52nd Street was a huge album for Billy Joel, he became an international superstar and his hit ‘My Life’ and ‘Honesty’ were huge. Listening it again 40 years later I can understand why it appealed to me. It sort of got left behind because it didn’t fit in with my fast growing metal rock image. Funny how much Billy Joel looks like Sylvester Stallone in this 🙂
