1980 Grammy Award Winner: Best Male Rock Vocal Performance
The 1980 album begins with the sound of glass shattering - Billy Joel decided to change musical gears for his seventh album and with producer Phil Ramone, Glass Houses delivered a mix of hard rock, soft rock, pop, and new wave. New sounds are present on this record, and Billy's acoustic piano gives way to heavier keyboards, meaty guitar riffs and more prominent drums.
Glass Houses still displays the hallmarks of Billy Joel the pop craftsman and features his first #1 single, "It's Still Rock and Roll To Me", as well as the hits "Sometimes a Fantasy" and "Don't Ask Me Why". The album was #1 for six weeks and ranked #4 on Billboard's year-end album chart.
Joel remains one of the greatest hitmakers of our time and this album gives us a look at a younger artist and what is regarded as his first pure rock album.
You've never heard your favorite music sound this good! The clarity is exceptional, you will hear deeper lows and crisper highs. Treat yourself to a musical experience you've never had before! These new 24KT+ Gold CDs reproduce the ultimate sound of a classic recorded performance without the irregular plated surfaces of standard aluminum discs.
Audio Fidelity's 24KT+ Gold CD series brings you classic music in deluxe packaging with see-through slip cases using original album art, all beautifully reproduced. They only use the original master mixes played back on a specially constructed vintage playback deck. Here's where the PLUS (+) comes in: The analog masters are put through their new proprietary analog to digital converter which reinforces the resolution of the original masters adding true "breath of life" to the music. Without any further sonic manipulation the master is shipped directly to the manufacturing plant for etching in "real time" onto the glass surface by laser. The end result of this unique mastering process is a compact disc with the warm sound of the original analog master tape combined with a genuine 24 karat gold surface free of any type of physical defect making Audio Fidelity's 24KT+ Gold CD series truly one of a kind!
"...Glass Houses connects immediately with a string of hits never surpassed...as powerful and succinct as Joel gets."
