I really appreciate all of Billy Joel's records. However his early releases: Cold Spring Harbor, Turnstiles, and this one are special probably because they are not so overplayed on the radio. The title track is so haunting its beautiful. Los Angelinos boogies along quite nicely as Billy's band adds nice support. And two instrumentals- the subdued Mexican Connection with its accentuated rhythms and the jolly bingo hall styled Root Beer Rag. The Entertainer may be the hit single with its catchy lyrics but overall this record is very consistent and quite varied.
