Billy Joels debut LP Cold Spring Harbor will always be revered as one of the finest classic early albums from this superstar singer/songwriter. Released in 1971, Billy had already paid a bunch of dues since the 60s with bands like The Hassles and Atilla. Already entrenched with a handful of influential radio programmers, Billy Joel took to the road vigorously to help promote the Cold Spring Harbor album on stations like WNEW in New York and WMMR in Philly, which eventually helped break Billy to a huge record buying audience. As his nightclub shows became sell outs and airplay was beginning with his debut LP, Cold Spring Harbor soon became the album which would springboard this singer/songwriter into an arena artist in a very short time.
Cold Spring Harbor shows this New Yorkers skills in the studio, his stellar vocals, songwriting and amazing piano artistry. 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 his debut masterwork Cold Spring Harbor.
As another installment in Friday Music's exclusive Billy Joel/Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this first time impeccably mastered audiophile LP features some of his greatest songs like the brilliant album opener Shes Got a Way, the Beatles-esque You Can Make Me Free, the stellar instrumental Nocturne, and his classic debut single Everybody Loves You Now.
