Forty years ago tonight, Billy Joel performed live on radio station WLIR. The broadcast took place at Ultrasonic Recording Studios, on Long Island. It would be his first performance as a solo artist. He played: “Everybody Loves You Now,” “She's Got A Way,” “All American Blues,” “Got To Begin Again” and “Captain Jack.”
To celebrate Billy's anniversary, this week saw the release of “The Complete Albums Collection,” which features all of his solo albums collected together for the first time, plus a bonus disc and two extensive booklets.
