Billy Joel 52nd Street on 180g LP

Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio & Pressed at RTI!

Winner of two 1979 Grammys, including Album of the Year, 52nd Street is the 10x platinum selling phenomenon from the 'Piano Man' now on 180g LP exclusively from Impex Records. For the follow-up to his breakthrough 1977 hit The Stranger, Billy Joel enlisted producer Phil Ramone and expanded his sound with a more sophisticated jazz feel. Features the classic hits “Big Shot,” “Honesty” and “My Life.”

"Loosely conceived as a collection of New York episodeand packed with Latin and jazz influences, Joel's songsmithing and machine gun keyboards have never been tighter - a foreshadowing of the harder-edged social commentaryof his 80s albums Glass House and The Nylon Curtain.
 
"The Impex 180-gram remastering by Kevin Gray is superb. It replaces the spongy timing and dull top of the original Columbia LP with expansive space and sharp details. Its vivid and brightened treble is welcome compared to the warm but smothered original. Listen for Joel's doubled harmonies, the pennywhistle in "Rosalinda's Eyes," and the burning horn section in "Half a Mile Away," and you'll hear what a difference a great remastering makes." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, October 2011
