New Billy Joel Love Songs Compilation in Stores Tuesday 1/22/13
Billy Joel fans who are eager for new material from the Piano Man probably won't be getting any this year, but at least a new compilation of some of his classic tunes arrives in stores Tuesday.
She's Got a Way: Love Songs features 18 songs drawn from Billy's entire catalog. Some of these songs are very well known, while others are more obscure. In the more well-known column, the album includes "Just the Way You Are" -- of course -- as well as "Honesty," "She's Always a Woman, "Shameless," "An Innocent Man," "This Is the Time," "You're My Home" and the live version of "She's Got a Way."
Casual Billy fans will also enjoy discovering a variety of great album tracks, which date as far back as his first release, 1971's Cold Spring Harbor. Among the songs included: "Travelin' Prayer" from Piano Man, "She's Right on Time" from The Nylon Curtain, "Until the Night" from 52nd Street, "This Night" from An Innocent Man, "Temptation" from The Bridge, "And So It Goes" from Storm Front and "While the Night Is Still Young," which was one of the two new tracks included on Billy's 1985's Greatest Hits - Volume I and II.
Billy may perform some of these songs when he takes the stage April 27 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. It's a rare non-benefit concert live date from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, who hasn't done an extensive tour since his last Face to Face pairing with Elton John ended in early 2010.
