Billy Joel will drop the brand new vinyl box set, Billy Joel –The Vinyl Collection, Vol. 2, on November 3. Joel first revisited his catalog in 2021 with The Vinyl Collection, Vol. 1., which focused on his rise to stardom, featuring his albums from the 1970s.
The new 11-LP set revisits the second half of Joel’s recording career and includes such classic albums as 1980’s Glass Houses, 1982’s The Nylon Curtain, 1983’s An Innocent Man, 1986’s The Bridge, 1989’s Storm Front and 1993’s The River of Dreams. The set also includes the 2001 instrumental album, Fantasies & Delusions, which featured classical compositions written by Joel and performed by classical pianist Richard Joo.
The set comes with the three-LP live album, Billy Joel – Live from Long Island, a homecoming show recorded December 29, 1982, at Nassau Coliseum. Highlights from the concert aired on HBO the following year, with the full concert getting a VHS release, but this is the first time it’s coming out on vinyl. A digital version of the concert film is being released as well.
Billy Joel –The Vinyl Collection, Vol. 2 is available for preorder now.
