BILLY JOEL | THE NYLON CURTAIN (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/ LTD EDITION)
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 the AOR classic Goodnight Saigon, his Christmas fan favorite She’s Right On Time, as well as the melancholy closer Where’s The Orchestra with its surprise ending. As part of the extensive Billy Joel 180 Gram Audiophile Series on Friday Music, both Joe Reagoso of Friday Music has gone back to the original Columbia Records analog tapes and mastered another winning audiophile release. 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. Also included for a limited time is the first time gatefold cover like our recent Glass Houses (FRM 36384) audiophile vinyl release, which features all of the original artwork elements as you remember them from the eighties. If there ever was a time we needed the right album for our audiophile needs, Billy Joel’s The Nylon Curtain is a much indeed welcomed surprise.
