1982's The Nylon Curtain was a tremendous and resounding success for Billy Joel. Boasting a ton of hit singles and huge radio activity for the better part of the year, this legendary artist truly hit his stride with this amazing release.
With stunning hits like Allentown and Pressure maneuvering this fine album to the top of the charts, The Nylon Curtain showed the highly creative mind of Billy Joel, as the orchestrations, the melodies and the lyrical setting made this one of his most important recordings of his four decade career.
Incredible tracks filled this Phil Ramone produced album such as the AOR classic Goodnight Saigon, his Christmas fan favorite She's Right On Time, as well as the melancholy Where's the Orchestra with its surprise ending.

Pressed at RTI in conjunction with Sony Music, The Nylon Curtain just fills the room with all the excitement and sonic delivery you would expect from this legendary artist.
